Geocoin Fest 2007- A National coin event!

Recommended Posts

On the poker website it says that you will determine the value of the coins to buy in and that it can't be coins that have been sold or am I reading it wrong.

 

No coins "currently available for sale" can be used.

 

Thanks for the clarification Chief. No coins currently for sale at the time of the event, and no micros. That is the basic rule structure, to encourage playing with coins that people would consider worth spending 3 hours of their time. As for value, I will be the judge on any coins that meet this criteria but perhaps don't quite qualify in some people's minds. Or perhaps don't meet the criteria but are so rare/hard to find that they should be in the pot.

 

For example, and to clarify that this is not meant as a slam on the makers of this coin, I will not be accepting Maine geocoins. Maine had a minting of somewhere over 2500? (guess) and in my opinion may not be viewed as valuable as some other state editions. That is not to say that Maine wasn't a nice geocoin. And, some people might view Maine as the best geocoin ever minted. Maybe there is a micro coin that is just so dern hard to find that it has to be included. Like a BGF Minnow.

 

Any other coins that perhaps run into this situation will also be reviewed. If you have questions, please feel free to actually send me the list of the three coins you plan to use. If you do, I will not be sharing anyone's list. No sense stirring the pot early (pun intended).

 

****edit to add

 

In case anyone didn't see, I will NOT be playing. So, I plan to be a fair and neutral judge on any entries since I'm not eligible for a share of the winnings :santa:

Example, say someone puts in a lacky coin, a mountainbike coin and a volunteer coin. How would that be fair if someone else puts in a current standard USA Geocoin, Generic Geocoin and FTF Coin. So the disclaimer is no coin currently available for sale or being sold at the time of the event.

 

 

I agree and what might be valuable to me may not be valuable to The Moop Along so I wondered if a list would be put out ahead of time. I believe he had answered the question by saying that he would accept an email ahead of time to judge the value of the coins.

To be honest, I don't see it being a huge issue. But, I am going to be impartial. Coins that I may not be seeking might be very popular. I will be taking that into consideration. I read these forums for hours a day, and if I have a coin or two that might be in a grey area, I'll cross that bridge then. I plan to use popular consensus on "value".

If I get an inquiry from someone that I feel needs to be addressed, I will post it here. So, to start with:

 

Coin entries will not be valued on trackable vs. non-trackable on GC.com or any other site for that matter.

 

I mean, I'd have to tell the person who ponied up their Indy Diver v1, sorry, it's not trackable.

(JUST KIDDING, No Indy Diver v1's were really offered in the making of this post)

Really looking forward to poker. Everyone gets something just for entering and the winner will walk away with a nice haul. Can't wait to see everyone put on their poker faces :santa:

I figured it exactly the same way. I am thinking it will be a great way to put memento and memory together. I see that there are actually three prizes so there will be more than one winner as well!!!

Winning any amount of geocoins would be a bonus but I think the real memento will be that Geocoin Poker Challenge coin, I will be very happy if that is all I walk away with. See you there -mike-.

Since there were 2 open spots in the poker tourney, I figured I would ante-up and play!

 

Well, then AG informed me that one of us needed to be free in case something came up! :)

 

I even my my list of entry coins ready to send to TMA for approval:

 

Moun10Bike Ver. 1

 

Groundspeak Lackey

 

Capt. Prozac

 

Oh well, maybe next time.

After reading another posting here about mailing coins internationally, I was wondering if someone could have an exhibit or table set up for info on mailing. My little local PO has no clue & I think I have been overpaying. :( I have no clue what you are talking about, when a discussion of packages & forms comes up. It sounds like I'm not the only one confused! It certainly sounds like the different PO don't have the same rules. :D

Signed up and paid today. Very much looking forward to the event.

 

Hopefully my personal coins will be completed and ready for trading by then.

Unfortunately I will not be able to attend. I really wanted to, but a combination of work and house commitments (we're packing up and heading across town) makes it impossible for me to get away. Everyone have a great time! And hopefully I'll catch ya'll at GW5 <_<

Have hotels been arranged yet. I already got one but if I can find a cheaper rate, that would be great. Did yall make any deals with Comfort Inn in Temecula?

 

We are excited, I think I am more than the rest. We are only going for 4 days because of school etc.

 

Look forward to both events!!

Can I still sign up for poker? If so, I would like to... thanks, CCL

 

You can still sign up for wait list seats only. The main tournament seats are spoken for. If there are no shows, I will be using the wait list players first come, first serve. Check out the geocoinfest website for how to sign up for the waitlist.

It looks like I will be able to make it to this event. I am probably coming into LAX and visit with friends on the 16th and flying to Seattle early on the 18th to visit my sister. Any kind of room sharing set up? Anyone coming from LA on the 17th? Still working out the details but it looks like a go.

Spent several hours arranging travel today and my brain is fried. The good news is it is done and I will be there. I came close to giving up (ask me why I prefer Southwest to all other airlines) but kept at it and saved a couple hundred dollars in the process. I am so excited to meet you all.

Five weeks from today!!!

 

Guess I should buy a plane ticket. :)

 

If anyone has any other state, personal or other coins they would like to donate to the raffle (which will be free) or for the "guess the number of coins in the coin jar" sideshow drop me an email. I can also accept them at the event themselves. (and 'no' I don't know the current number! :D )

Greetings GeocoinFesters!

 

After keeping the project under wraps, I'm happy to reveal to the forums...the design of the 2007 GeocoinFest Coin that will be available to everyone!

 

1111-geocoinfest07-275.jpg

 

KarelKraak's unique GeocoinFest logo is prominently displayed on the front with a few special "tweaks". It's a 2" coin, and will be available soon in Antique Bronze, Antique Copper and Satin Gold, through CoinsAndPins.com.

 

Happy Geocoining!

Very nice Yime, I really like what you did with the logo (I wasn't sure about it as a coin initially, but you worked your magic!)

I think I'm gonna have to get this one in each metal (and I NEVER do that!!!!!!)

Very nice! Outstanding as always and the color play for the antique is really nice. It's the little details that really dress this up. I had my reservations as well about the logo for a coin, but your really pulled it off with your typical attention to detail. I'm definitely in for a few of these. :)

I just received notification from Aaron about the coins along with a request to indicate how many of each metal I wanted. I too never order an entire set but since I won't be able to attend (which I REALLY, REALLY wanted to do), I thought I should have the whole set. I hope everybody has a great time and I already have my hopes up for attending next year. Thanks for making this happen, everybody.

I got the email, too...the coins look GREAT! I think there should be a special coin for those of us that REALLY WANT TO GO, but can't...engraved with something like...My geocaching buddies went to Geocoin Fest, and all I got was this coin.

We are trying to figure out a way to drive down for this. maybe work some Disney Land in on the way home. It's a 3 day weekend so it should not be too hard.

Too bad I didn't pay attention to the boards until recently; I had to put the $'s towards a good Christmas instead of my geoCoin fix...

There's ads on TV here in the PHX area about flights to the LA area for $49. It's almost tempting enough to jump on, but then there's getting from the airport to the event... and it's really not that far of a drive for me. And I'd rather not worry about airport security and geocoin collections.

 

Besides, I'm thinking of a few caches between here and there I'd like to hit.

Is there any talk on where it will be next year.

 

Not yet, I would guess that would be decided by what individuals would be willing to take it on next year. Right now the current crew just wants to get through this one :lol:
