MISSION: Santa's Mission

Recommended Posts

Love that Father Christmas Coin, that's really great!

 

Can't wait to get the destination for my mission, I'm already making plans for what will go into the parcel... :laughing:

Making plans is the best part about christmas...

Oh dear.

 

Whoops ... I didn't mean to cause such a stir by posting that image. I should have known better knowing how rabid some people here are about coins. I'm afraid it is NOT my coin ... I simply did a google image search for "Santa Coin" to have something fun to post.

 

But after a little investigating, I discovered that you can in fact buy it - though not from me. The image is hosted at mil-mall.com, which appears to do its trade in selling gifts for military families - including military challenge coins and other fun coins. I don't know if they offer geocoins.

 

Here is the link if you're interested:

 

mil-mall.com santa coin ... Do a search for "Santa Coin" and you'll find it.

This is a very neat looking coin, is this a geocoin? Would you be so kind is emailing us and letting us know even if it isnt a coin and how we could get one? This one would be so much fun to give our little neice for X-Mas. Thank You!

 

NO, PLEASE just tellus here and now PLEASE :blink:

LOL, Your so funny, yes please tell us and here so fairyhoney knows also :laughing:

As at NZ time, 21 October today we have

 

Adult Missions

Australia 2

Belguim 1

Canada 6

Germany 5

NZ 3

Sweden 6

Switzerland 1

Netherlands 3

UK, 21

USA 63

 

I've been off on other forums doing some marketing to make this an international mission as much as possible.

If you have geocaching / geocoin friends in other nations, please encourage them to join up.

It's a BIG mission field, and it will take several days to send out the emails. Please be patient.

As this job really needs to be done right first time.

 

Child missions.

25 globally diverse participants.

 

Pet Missions.

16 missions, 66% US.

 

Fun to come.

Think now about the extras you might add...

a jingle bell, an ornament, (hey - those crackers MUST have the popper removed as it is classed as an explosive - care here please.)

A handmade item maybe,

candy or chocolate.

a toy, or a book.

Let's have a little fun now and post your suggestions for extras.

 

Remember some countries have restrictions - no plant material or organic items (eg sand filled objects)

Snow is supposed to be coming to our neck of the woods this week........puts you in the mood. Oh the weather out side is frightful, but the fire is so delightful............and if you've no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow..............

Update....

Those emails are coming in fast now.

 

Once the close off is reached, I'll post the list again.

Then you can email me again if I have the numbers wrong for your mission.

It will take several days of cross matching missions, as I want to ensure that where possible there is a good geographical mix.

 

All going well, you should have your email by the end of Sunday 2 November, allowing time to meet most cut off mailing dates for international Christmas mail.

 

You are however welcome to hold off mailing your mission and pay a bit more for postal rates; just please ensure it gets to the recepient before Dec 24th.

 

Thanks to the many who are making this mission work so well.

Wonderful spirit out there.

The mailing date is only there to catch international Christmas mail deadlines (non-priority).

Feel free to post later, so long as it gets there by 24th December.
