A few days left for anyone with a birthday in May, June, July, August, September, or October!

 

Mission names will be sent out on 31 August 2010.

 

For those of you who are still on the fence, there will be another round of missions assigned a bit later - September 31 2010. After that, I will turn over the Birthday Missions to someone else to organize for November and December birthdays.

Woohoo! Can't wait......If DrNeal's Trading list is up to date.....I even have at least one....maybe two (if the one can be pried from my fat little fingers) that he is seeking :D

 

Got myself a nice little varied selection going to suit just about everyone.....before I got cut off from buying anymore for at least a month (maybe 2) :grin:B):rolleyes:

Cant wait, is it tuesday soon at your place? :D It is 10AM here in Sweden.

 

Let´s hope all have their seekinglists updated. Oh right, I don´t have one myself. :rolleyes: But I am easy to please, anything given to me will be treasured. I mostly collect animalshaped coins and food/drinks shaped coins though.

Almost all my keepers are activated so take a look in my profile to get a hint.

 

This will be fun!!!! I love missions and there hasn´t been many lately.

edit to add: Bah, even worse, I thought the names were given aug 31, one more day to wait.

We have 10 participants IN by the 31 August deadline - yay!

 

I am working on assignments now...my "real job" has the better of me right now. Please be patient - everyone will have their mission assignment by the end of today.

 

draglings - if you could, please state your progress in TWO missions, to represent the both of you. Something like Mission 1 and Mission 2 should do fine.

 

Once everyone has their mission assignments, let's give ourselves ONE MONTH to send out our missions. If you get your package done beforehand, great! Since most of us are already late for our birthdays, another four weeks (or so) shouldn't matter much.

 

PLEASE post your progress in these forums, and email me if you have any questions in the meantime!

 

Happy Birthday, everyone!

I have no allergies.

 

This will be so much fun. I got a really interesting person to send my mission to. I have to go shopping then I am ready.

 

If you are allergic to something common in candy like peanuts or milk or flour or anything that might be found in food/candy please tell here so I don´t send anything that might cause any trouble. :)

 

Thank you for hosting this mission.

I didn't know there was a magazine for geocaching! Maybe I should visit the "Resources" link on geocaching.com a bit more often? Very thoughtful...the gift that keeps on giving, if you will. And better than the "jelly of the month" club! (that's a movie reference for those of you who thought that last bit came out of left field)

 

And here's an update for my mission:

 

1. Participating: Yes, email sent (to myself) 25 August 2010

2. Mission Name Received: Yes, email sent from myself 1 September 2010

3. Outgoing Mission Mailed: Yes, 14 September 2010

4. Incoming Mission Received:

 

Fingers crossed that the package arrives safely and that the contents are pleasing!

For any May, June, July, August, September or October birthdays remaining:

 

If you want to participate in the 2010 Birthday Misison, there is still time!

 

Specifically, there are TWO WEEKS remaining for those of you with a birthday between 1 May and 31 October! If you are interested, please check out the guidelines for what makes a good mission (to send AND receive), and email me that you will participate. There are a few questions I need you to answer, and you can find those on post #94.

 

On September 30th, I will wait until midnight to gather all of the names and pair them up. I will mail out your mission assignments as soon as everyone is paired.

 

Sound good? Then sign up! :)

 

PS Please email me with your interest through my account at geocaching.com .

Is anyone interested in stepping up to run the 2010 November-December birthday missions?

 

This person should be identified relatively quickly, so that the mission can run more smoothly and without interruption.

 

If you have questions about what is involved, please email me via geocaching.com It's not too complicated, so don't let the "I've never run a mission" mentality discourage you! You do need to be available and have reliable internet, though.

Update from me, too!

Cannot for the life of me locate the cord to download the pictures from the digital camera.....I promise to find it!!! Destiny was so tickled pink.....She loved everything. I attempted to run off with a Kangaroo and the DNF Monster.....and was threatened by her little preteen angst....I am scared...so I have only borrowed them long enough to activate them for her and give them back.....they all have a place in her "Special" Box and then their own little box to take to events to be discovered :)......Her bear's name is Cuddles, but I am not sure about the doll's name (as she was hugging it, I was trying to make haste with said coins)....I am not allowed to have any candy (because of my robbery attempt), but she is sharing with the rest of the "Crew" :anicute:

Four days left to get in on the mother of all birthday missions!

 

If you have a birthday between May and October, you have until 30 September to let me know if you want to participate! Please read the complete instructions to make sure you know what you're getting into. It can be a lot of fun to receive AND to give. The pictures posted here and in last year's birthday mission will give you an idea of what makes a good mission.

 

Thanks, and happy birthday to those who are already assembling or who have received their missions!
