Thanks Atlanta Gal. I had mistakenly thought these state events were some sort of a replacement for a major GeocoinFest. These smaller meet n greet sytle trade events sound really cool. :anitongue:

Since the interest was high, we figured we wanted to do something before the next Geocoinfest that was on a small enough scale so that sponsors wouldn't be required to pull it off. I'm guessing that the Calif event will probably top 100 attendees. Now I have to figure out where to hold it. :laughing:

 

--Marky

 

Check into the Sequoia Conference Center in Buena Park it is a great site with plenty of hotel/camping around.

Only the 6 day ones... and not for long enough to do justice to the city and an event! I think we'd drive to North Cal.

So Cal lined up soooo well for a family holiday we've been wanting to do for a while... we'll wait and see if any other hosts come forward and decide later where we'll go.

I'm finally getting back to checking out this thread. I held a local geocoin event last year and am planning round 2 for this month, so I'd be interested in organizing another this fall to coincide with these.

Ok curious on the event coin. How exactly will these be paid for? Will the event hosts front the cost and sell them to recoup or is there something else in mind?

 

Also dorkfish will be helping us arrange the one for Idaho :D

Avroair,

 

You are tempting me to jump in here and host the Oregon Event. I'll have to see if I can get some of the other big "coinies" here to give me a hand. Gotta start looking for a venue...already have a couple of places in mind.

I'm thinking that Mark will have a template that we can all use. It would be great to see all of the Event listings with a universal theme, and add the local flavor to it. Maybe even share the winning logo for the page background? I'm getting syked!

I'm wondering if our events will be too close with Toledo (JIMBOBWE) to be of benefit, wondering how far down you're going to hold yours Jim?? I had planned to host ours in Adrian (at the golf course). I could discuss this with my friends and see if we can come up with another location to use further up and away from Toledo??

 

Let me know of your plans Jim...we'll see what we can get worked out!

 

edit to add: MI has disappeared from your list. ;-)

Yeah i thought about that,My original location was going to ge at Wildwood MetroPark.But i've been toying around with a couple locations in downtown Toledo.If i go with downtown,it would give me an opportunity to hide a bunch of urban caches before the event.Something to highlight the area.Kinda like the celebrate Detroit series.

I'm not sure yet,but i know we can work it out. :rolleyes:

General Tuperware (GT) is trying to get an event happening in BC on the Lower Mainland somewhere. We can't host it due to personal commitments the two weeks leading up to the event, but we can certainly attend and lend a hand. If you're on the Lower Mainland and can pitch in to bring a local GeocoinFest Multi Event to fruition, please let GT know ASAP.

 

The clock is ticking, but not running out. This is June and the GeocoinFest Multi Event is in the fall.

 

It would seem that locations could potentially be added up until the coin die is struck or the sample approved depending on which design is chosen.

After a little persuasion, we have decided we would be willing to host an event in Vancouver (or surrounding area). Just need to find a venue now. Please add us to the list.

 

Thanks,

Irene and Kevin

It's great to see events happening in NS and BC, but what about all the other Canadian provinces with avid coin collectors like SK, AB, QC and ON? Is everyone from the middle going to come flocking to the west and the east :D ?

Wow, that's almost an event for every other state in the union! :blink:

 

While VA and GA look to both have an event on the list, I'm kind of surprised to not see NC represented! Is there a minimum commitment level required for an event to be listed as part of this?

You would think there'd be more places where Canuck events would happen. Coin interest is growing. I had a coin event last week and around 40 people showed up.

You certainly have to be commited :P No not really, each organizer has been given some basic information and a loose structure. They take it from there...

Ours will be in Somerset, PA -- not too far from both the MD and WV boarders. October 6 starts automfest at a local resort here so the area will be humming with lots to do and see. There are nearby hotels and campgrounds.

Ok, after perusing the geocoinfest site, sounds like the only serious obligation is committing to a venue to host the event and receiving/distributing the event coin. I've got a potential co-host in mind who has hosted other events, but won't know for sure if we can pull it off until after he returns from the MWGB. Will it be too late to throw NC's name in the hat at that point? :blink:

After much discussion with Avroair during MWGB, I am going to quietly withdraw my proposal for having an official event in Battle Mountain NV.

 

For those that havent been to Battle Mountain, I invite you go to.

Is it too late to add a event for the Kansas City area. I hadn't never hosted a event before so I am currently asking for help on setting one up on the KC Geoccacher Fourms http://mogeo.ipbhost.com/index.php?showtopic=1107 .

 

I will be assisting sawblade5 in Kansas City and we will invite all Kansas and Missouri geocachers being on the border
