+scificollector Posted April 20, 2010 Share Posted April 20, 2010 Emerald Coast is willing to do pre event trades for other 10 yr! event coins. If you are interested and haven't been in contact with us, Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are due to get the coins in on April 22nd. All Pre Event trades already arranged will ship April 23rd. You can't do that. We all agreed not to do anything with the coins until the event (it's on the google pages). So you really can't ship trades until May 3rd. Ummm Really? Remember some of the event hosts want to have other event coins for display at their events too.... That's what the pages said and also what mark said to me personally on the phone. Glad to know everyone is breaking the rules. Direct quote from the particpant google pages: Sales Event hosts will be selling the coins for $10.00 each. In agreeing to be part of the multi-event coin project, all hosts cannot sell or distribute the coins before May 1st. Please note the bold, thank you very much. So you are saying that I cannot trade with the host of an event that already has a version of the same base coin that I am sending them because it the letter of the agreement we all made even if it violates common sense. We are entrusting the hosts not to distribute or sell their coins to others before event weekend but we can't trust them to do the same for other versions of the coin? I do realize that I am the new kid on the block and it was my assumption that this was done with the last multi event as no one else that I talked with thought this was unusual or against the agreement. I had several offers for trade of the coin with non-hosts to which I replied, "Once the event is over, I would be glad to entertain offers of trades or sales of what I have left". I will abide by the letter of the agreement but I really think that this is very silly. How does delaying trades between hosts of the events before the event affect anything? The only thing it really does is not allow us to show how different areas of the world can take the same base coin and put their personal spin on the design. I was hoping to have a few varieties of the event coin to show people new to geocaching and/or geocoin collecting in order to drum up new recuits to our passion. You can't do that. We all agreed not to do anything with the coins until the event (it's on the google pages). So you really can't ship trades until May 3rd. BTW since we are all being rule lawyers here, my trades to other event hosts will be dropped off at the Post office at 12am on May 1st since that will be satisfying the letter of the agreement not to distribute before May 1st. all hosts cannot sell or distribute the coins before May 1st.
