+tsunrisebey Posted June 25, 2008 Share Posted June 25, 2008 (edited) Please Read Carefully so you understand what this Challenge is about before you volunteer yourself. * This involves the release of 2 activated (by me) Earth Turtle geocoins. * This will involve volunteers to help the coins travel. * This will require you to go geocaching within a certain amount of time and find a minimum amount of caches within that amount of time. * You will be required to travel with the activated Earth Turtle and take pictures of it at the cache site (doesn't have to be a picture of the turtle with the cache, I would prefer a nature/scenic view). * You will be required to post the cache GC# and the picture associated with it in this thread. * You will be required to mail the coin back to me but the coin will be mailed to another volunteer by me after I receive it. * You may allow others to 'discover' the coin but do NOT allow virtual logging. * The coins will be mailed with specific directions so you don't have to keep reading this thread to figure out what to do. *** So, if you still think you are interested, please continue reading.*** I personally love to travel and see different cultures and incredible views of nature from around the world. let's face it until I win the lottery, I won't be able to travel everywhere. This is going to allow me and those of you who are interested in seeing what the world looks like, an opportunity to do so. This also gets you out caching and getting 2 coins to travel. It also (99% sure) avoids my coins from being stolen but allowing them to travel without too much worry. If you are still interested, keep reading! Now taking into consideration everything I have just said, let me add even more about this whole thing. I am going to open up a 24 hour volunteer period prior to each release. I will post something to the affect: " Volunteers Names Being Accepted". If you are interested, all you have to do is post the Country/State/Province you are from. You have 24 hours to think about adding your name before I close the volunteer period. I will then take a couple of days to review your geocaching stats/account and check to see how active you are within the geocaching community (posts/caches/events, etc.). I will base my choice on who receives the coins to cache with first. This challenge will run for 1 year and several months (to allow for choices and mailing)! There will 24 opportunities for you all to get in on this challenge because each cacher has 1 month to complete the requirements and then mail the coins back to me so I can choose the next volunteer and get the coins mailed to you. Now the fun part and interesting part. The 24 people who are picked and I may use some unbiased help by getting opinions from previous volunteers, family members or caching/coiner buddies, will earn a free coin for completing the challenge. This won't be just any coin, it's an upcoming coming. There will be 25 coins made of a special version of this upcoming coin. The coin you receive will be trackable but if you choose to trade/sell it, you won't be getting another one RULES: * You have to abide by everything posted above. * You must find 4 physical caches within 4 weeks upons receiving the coin. * You must email me or post in this thread 24 hours within receiving the coin. * You must post your pictures and the Cache Listing (link or GC#) here so I (we) can verify your log. * As soon as you are done and within the 4 weeks, you must mail the coin back to me, so I can choose the next volunteer as quickly as possible. The sooner the better. * No allowing of virtual logs. * You may allow people to discover the coin. * ADDED: No event caches (as one of your 4 caches, although you can take the coin to an event). * ADDED: No virtual caches and no earth caches (because you can not dip the coin on this kind). * ADDED: The caches that count towards your total of 4 caches must be physical caches. * ADDED: You may dip the coin in your cache if you are doing maint. on your own cache. However, you must log you are doing a maint. check and that does NOT count as a cahce find towards your total 4 caches needed. * Do NOT leave the coin in a cache, you must travel with it and dip/log the coin into the cache. * You must take a picture of the coin in the natural surroundings or of a scenic/nature view, so we can see where you live, looks like. * If you do not follow the rules or do all of the requirements, you are disqualified from receiving the special coin. * ADDED: No vacation caches. I want you to cache in the place you live. So for instance if you live in the United States (Montana), I expect you to find your caches in Montana. If you live in Canada, British columbia, I expect you to log and find caches there. If you live in Spain, then I want to see pictures and caches logged in Spain. * ADDED: In special circumstances, to be determined by me, for someone who lives in a "cache poor" density because of their remote location or because geocaching is not well known there (Offer void in the US and Canada). You may still volunteer. If you volunteer you will be required to place 2 small to regular size caches (no micros allowed) and have them approved within the 4 week period. You will have to follow the other rules set forth in this contest, you are hiding instead of finding. * Please don't lose the coin or no one else will be able to participate because of it, as long as both coins are traveling, the challenge is in play. *** Please don't volunteer if you know you can't complete this challenge. If you don't understand how this works, watch the first few people and then volunteer. IMPORTANT: Because of the nature of this challenge, there may come a time when I need to change something due to an unforeseen circumstance. That is my right to do so. ~~~~~It is YOUR responsibility to be familiar with how this challenge works. That will probably require to read through the posts periodically. I will do my best to repost this page and add updates as needed and in red, so you know what is most recent. Let me be very clear, if you fail to abide by the rules or you do not complete your part of the challenge, you do NOT get a coin. NO EXCEPTIONS! I know there may be some sort of an emergency, unforeseen circumstance, whatever the case may be but the rules stand. You may volunteer again but you will have to wait until the next person completes the challenge before you do so.~~~~~ ************************************************************************************** I will not accept volunteers for the 1st 24 hours, to allow time for questions, me to revise if needed, moderators to look over and make any changes needed. tsun Edited June 25, 2008 by tsunrisebey Quote Link to comment
