"World Release Register" for Coins & Bugs

What a great idea to make an official list. This is exactly what I was hoping to find.

 

I am an conseillor in the usage of technologies for a school disctrict in Northern Quebec, the only French Speaking province of Canada. In the past 2 years, I have introduced about 300 kids to geocaching (and I'm being paid to cache with them :-)

 

I am preparing a project with 10 elementary school classes. Each class will receive 9 TB that will be launched from different parts of the world with all the same mission... to make it back home.

 

I am looking for 9 people from different countries who would be willing to launch 10 TB (one from each class). During the project, the kids will have to write in English (their second language) to everybody who logs their TB to thank them and ask them a question. They will also have to do a small research about the areas visited by their bugs and keep a journal of their adventures.

 

I would be mailing the bugs around the end of October. I will pick the countries I prefer and ask these people to help us. What a great thread.

 

I would also like to be an officiel releaser but from October to May, geocaching is rather slow around here because of our long winters. I would accept to drop bugs mainly in the spring.

 

Thanks, Eric Godbout alias Geo-Spoutnik

More than happy to assist. Please contact me via email if you wish to take up my offer. I have already successfully released three trackables from Canada in Australia on behalf of Labrador Wild Man and they are progressing well.

I am extremely happy that this is a useful list of volunteers! I too, as the keeper of the registry, be happy to release any coins or bugs for your class project.

 

You can certainly visit the WRR at anytime by clicking on the link in my signature.

 

Remember, those who wish to be added to or deleted from the WRR can send an email on the front page of the registry.

 

Regards,

If you put this post over in the UK & Ireland forum you'll probably reach more Scottish cachers than here in the Geocoin forum. :)

The following register is worth considering. That is how the Labrador Wild Man originally contacted me to release some of his coins here in Australia.

 

WORLD RELEASE REGISTER - Get on it and keep those travelers moving about the planet!
