Recommended Posts

Aw comeon since it is the 17th somewhere in the world lets start today while everyone is around, no wait, do it tomorrow so I can sit by the computer with my jamies on, wait till midnight, sign up then go to bed. LOL

 

I will reactivate my watch on this one so I don't miss it, no matter how it is done it will be fun, Happy late Birthday Dennis.

I will be out of town tomorrow with no internet access. Maybe he will post the rules and needed info before I leave? Hint Hint

But at least we know that the sign up period extends until Jan 6 (unless of course he changes his mind from an earlier post!)

Alright the time has come to launch the White Elephant Geocoin Exchange or “WEGE” for short. In order to avoid any un-necessary confusion, the name of the Mission will not follow the format of a typical White Elephant Exchange. The format will follow the typical mission guidelines as seen below.

 

The deadline to join will be January 6th with the goal of people receiving there package by January 31st , so please plan accordingly.

 

I cannot be responsible for someone not mailing their package, this is an honor system, so please do your part to ensure that everyone has a great time.

 

And last but not least, there is a coin that has been minted to commemorate this Mission. The specs for the coin are as follows:

1. 1.5” x 1.23”

2. GC trackable with Icon

3. Imitation Hard Enamel

4. 3 mm thick

5. 250 total coins

a. 230 Black Nickel for sale through Oakcoins, starting December 18th

b. 20 Antique Copper available through me only (not for sale).

6. Price for coin $6.50 each plus applicable shipping charges.

IF you'd like to be involved, PLEASE follow these guidelines:

 

1. You are willing to Mail 3 Unactivated Geocoins or Non Trackable Geocoins to one Participant.

2. You must be a registered user in these Forums.

3. You must provide your FULL NAME AND ADDRESS to receive 3 Geocoins from another Participant.

4. If you have a seeking list it would be a good idea to include that in your post.

5. You must report your received status in this thread!

 

To Participate:

Email me with the following information to this email ONLY: WhiteElephantGeocoinExchange@gmail.com. Sending your request to any other email will result in you not participating in this mission (sorry, I will not receive your request if you do not follow guidelines).

 

1. Geocaching Name

2. FULL NAME & ADDRESS

3. Let me know if you are willing to ship outside of your Country.

4. You will receive an email from me ASAP, with your own Mission.

5. Please go the Distance. If you participate, please do your part to make this a fun experience.

 

YOU MAY PARTICIPATE IN MORE THAN ONE MISSION IF YOU LIKE!

 

**Sorry, Participants names cannot be reserved.**

Rockin Roddy in for myself and my teen son KAboom!

 

Rockin Roddy: I seriously need some help setting up a coin list, maybe I should seek some help with this in the near future?? I'm fairly simple to work with here, any of the newer coins (RFJ, Anthus Laptops most Christmas coins etc), many of the older coins (you know JoeFrog, Yemon Yime and Moun10Bike lol) and truly, even any I have already (could always use traders as most of mine "disappeared" recently)!!

 

Participating: YES!!

 

KAboom: Now, here's one for someone who needs an easy one...KAboom owns exactly 15 coins, most of which I gave him (but a couple face to face trades in there as well). KAboom (my 15 yr old son) LOVES animals (especially deer and wolves...but a MOOSE recently caught his eye too), PIRATES, DRAGONS and anything glittery or glowing! (hey, come to think of it, so do I)!!

 

Participating: YES!!!

 

I will be handling KAboom's mission, he will help though! This will be a complete surprise for KAboom, as I won't even let on that he's helping with HIS OWN mission package! I'm looking forward to this very much!!

 

THANKS Damenace! What kind of trades are you looking for for those TO elephants big guy??

:) Ordered a couple of coins. Will send an email for participation later today. Sounds like fun.

 

Question: Are we supposed to send coins we no longer want or need or have too many of (White elephants) or work to our missions seeking list? :)
