Nine

731 posts in this topic

Nine is the natural number to follow 8 and precedes 10 ~ this year 09 09 09 falls on a Wednesday.

 

History

Nine is a composite number, its proper divisors being 1 and 3. It is 3 times 3 and hence the third square number. 9 is a Motzkin number. It is the first composite lucky number. Nine is the highest single-digit number in the decimal system. 9 = 1001 in binary.

 

The origin of the 9 integers can be attributed to the ancient Indian civilization, and was adopted by subsequent civilizations in conjunction with the 0. Nine is the atomic number of fluorine. A human pregnancy normally lasts nine months. Nine ball is the standard professional pocket billiards. Cats have 9 lives. "Love Potion No. 9 originally performed by The Clovers in 1955. The word "K-9" pronounces the same as canine and is used in many U.S. police departments to denote the police dog unit.

 

So anyone interested in participating in a multi-event, sharing the same coin but with different colors?

I realize that a lot will depend upon how many coins are eventually ordered but what price range are we talking about?

 

Also is there proposed artwork?

The winner of last years event in Idaho was supposed to host it here in Idaho but i have heard two others talking of doing it.

 

I am sure Idaho will have one and i will make sure to help in whatever way to make sure another Idaho coin is made.

 

Who ever host the event should be in charge of the coin as well for Idaho and i will help them on that if they need help.

 

I will keep you posted but Idaho should be involved like last year.

 

Thanks for taking this on again.

Arizona's first cache was placed on 09/09/2000. That makes this coming September 9th, it's 9th birthday. I'm working towards making that my 999th cache find. I'm looking at finding it at 9:09AM.

 

Then that evening there is a local park I found that has the last 4 digits in the longitude and latitude... so have the event there. I was also considering a coin with either a bow tie (for "dressed to the nine's for caching") or a 9-ball.

If they do not want to get the coin i may take care of it for our area.

I certainly hope that we have one over here close somewhere :) .

Maybe you can talk some of your locals into hosting one.

 

The one Idaho had so much work put into but not enough time for everyone to enjoy it.

I am not sure if you want to go off what Idaho did.

 

I am still in shock over some of this and i may never be the same.

 

IDAHO 8-8-8 GC199EN

 

I am not sure if any of the other events did anything like Idaho.

 

It was a event i will never forget and Yes i would do it agian.

Thinkin' about starting up a Geocaching group here in Misawa (the Tohoku Geocacher Association, or ToGA*). This is assuming that I can get through this month alive (too many "collateral duties"). If I and my confederate cachers can pull this off, we will definitely want to do something, and 09-09-09 sounds great. It'll probably be a CITO event. I'll shoot you an email when it looks like things might be firming up.

Sounds like a good excuse to have an event linked - but here in the Middle East (Abu Dhabi)?

Mutli event: A multi event is the same themed event that happens in different locations around the world. Traditionally, the events share the same geocoin, usually with differences to metals or colors picked.

You can count with me, if you're willing to do a Portuguese Version, again this year.

Id love to host a 999 event, but unfortunatley I am in No Mans land as far as cachers go, so it'll probably be somebody from Central to Socal being San Jose or Sac to do the deed! Guess I could always partake in a mini 999 :) Then I couldnt make the real deal! :)

If you stand on your head at a 999 event, does that make it a 666 event? :)

I think Ontario should have an event. Hmmm...I might be able to organize something. I will do a bit of research on the subject and see what I come up with. When do you need to confirm participation by?

Howdy -- my local geocaching group, the Misawa Geocachers Organization, has unofficially gotten off the ground and we even have an event lined up for June. The other folks I've talked to think that an 09/09/09 event would be a great idea, so count us in for wanting to get in on the event coin. Can't wait to see the art!

I'm up for the job of hosting one in Perth Western Australia, with enough notice we should get a few attending. But any idea what a minimum number of attendees might be needed to make it viable for the coin side of things?

 

Looking forward to trying to make this happen in our neck of the woods.

You need to get moving on this in early June if a coin and event pages are going to be posted in time.

August 9th is a Sunday, which would make for possible better cacher turnout.

Why would you want to do an event in August?

Let me ask. Would it be a local event, or statewide? How BIG of an event are we talking? (I'll read up on multi events later tonight.) I'm off to the Hilton Pool Bar at Myrtle Beach. :D

Already claimed SC further up in the thread (back in March) since I hosted the 8-8-08 leg last year in the ATL. So YOU'LL all need to come over to the beach :D

 

The events ranged anywhere from 20 to 100 cachers last year. California was one of the largest.

I have made a proposal to our local group to fund this coin for a 09/09/09 event and the only hold up on approval is viewing the artwork. Any word on that yet? Our groups prez sez only that he hopes you will NOT be going with a 9-Ball theme - too obvious - and that last years design was very nice & original. :D We're having a board meeting this Wednesday. I'm hoping to have something to present.

I sent Mark a few theme ideas for the coin, but last I heard his internet wasn't hooked up at the house yet so he probably won't see them until Monday. I can say that none was a 9-ball or billards theme.

 

Probably won't see any art until mid to late June regardless tho since he hasn't even started it yet.

Yeah, I know he just moved - Seattle, I think (lucky him).Thanks for the update, AG. :) The other request from one of the other officers is that any "9"s have lines under them so they cannot be mistaken for "6"s. Can't have a coin with 666 on it after all! :D:D:)

Here in SE Michigan we have a meet & greet scheduled for the second Wednesday of every month. For September that just happens to be on the 9th. That means we already have a place set up for it (Paneras) so it can be a go here! The regular cache page for these M&G events wouldn't have to be changed much at all.....Let me know what else is needed

Yeah I'll do a 9/9/09 at the SC beach this year :-)

 

I must not understand. Are we allowed only one meeting per state? I thought since it was a "multi" event, it would be local chapters having meetings. Is it a statewide? region wide? Please explain. Thanks!

 

PS... AG have you moved to our area? If so, Welcome!

It's WORLDWIDE. Our areas are not far enough apart to warrant more than one event. Look at the bookmarked list from last year to see. It's typically one event per state unless it's a big state and the two events are spread out somewhat. I'll push it to Conway and you can co-host it with me if you want.

 

I'll be in Surfside by 6/12.
