CATS OUTA THE BAG!...and its that time of year again!!!

 

No jokes, no foolin around it’s a nose to the grindstone April Fools COINTEST!!! This year I made drastic improvements on the design over years past that incorporate a 1/4” recess die rather than the 1/8” and YUP…ITS TRACKABLE!!! Fresh off the mint and this babys HOT!

 

The mint got ahead of the game this year and the 2011 April fools coins are ready for winning and now up for grabs!!! Last years coins came in rock solid a year later…but not this one! (the mint had die issues and quite a hard time locating a good washer stock after the popularity of this here coin. ;)

 

All center-pieces will be of recycled shell casings of the battlefields and battleships of WWII from 1944-1946, the years succeeding the infamous 1943 steel penny after the copper shortage during the war efforts, so not only will you get a pretty penny, a sig item AND a geocoin…YOU GET A PIECE OF HISTORY!

 

~only the Fools of Fools may participate… and if you won last year, ya gotta wait till next!~ :surprise:

 

Gonna be the same as last… first post to this here thread ON THE HOUR every hour from 1:00pm (which is the upcoming hour) till 7:00 pm Pacific time gets a coin. You must be the first post ON THE HOUR.

 

Lets start if off early with the very next post as the winner of the “XLE 3rd Wheel edition” and it all starts NOW! Happy April Fools everyone, good luck to all who actually give a hoot and CONGRATS to last years winners…I think ;)

 

Im pretty slammed today, so I dont think ill have much time to play, but ill try to drop in to check on things throughout...

Congratulations!!! So, you've still not learnt what causes new cachers then? :laughing:

Yeah... April fools Facebook marriage! LOL was this day last year when I went through every possible relationship change possible on Facebook, BUT...I couldnt be MARRIED untill I had a faithful bride. Karma actually stood me up at the alter as we had planned it, and all I had was my phone, so she had to send it to me. "SHE DIDNT KNOW HOW" <_< SO...I asked everyone on Facebook to be my bride for a day and who comes through for me than my sweet lil wifey I now have :) She accepted my marriage proposal, but it didnt end there OH NO... we started hangin out more, became roomates, started dating, got our own pad and BAM baby on the way! ;) So I hold it all to you April Fools day... Jokes on me and we have a new cacher on the way! No kidding! :blink:

 

SO...GIVE IT UP TO APRIL FOOLS!!!

 

now im off like a prom dress and will check back in here in a few.... maybe the mint has some mint errors layin around for a foolish fool, cuz this fool knows you tried...NOW SET YOUR ALARM!!! :grin:

I got my coin! I laughed so hard when I saw the customs declaration! :laughing:

 

Thank you so much for the coin and cointest! The coins is very cool!

 

I was wondering, are we fools allowed to let other geocachers discover the coin at events and such? Or perhaps only those who actually got fooled are worthy of this very unique discovery?

LOL... You can do whatever it is that you wish with your coin...You can grab it, place it, discover it, let others discover it, toss it in a cache, mass produce 100 proxys and release em, :huh: I have no preference as to what you do with your coin :) Ive got an "error" coin from the mint im gonna toss in a cache and see what becomes, :blink: I also sent one to Toojin to do the same with. As far as this coin goes... it will never get too coinfusing. Maybe I better update the page so everyone knows that everything goes! Glad you all got em and once again, CONGRATS AGAIN...I think! :P

 

heres the TB page for anyone interested, the tracking number is on the back of the coin. http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?id=224414
