Pick and Pass Geocoin Mission

Recommended Posts

Winter weather is keeping me inside these days. I have been thinking about this mission for some time now. It seems this is as good a time as any to put it out there and see if there is any interest. Introducing....

 

The Pick and Pass Mission by Chickahominy

 

Twenty five people may participate.

Your addy must be on the Geocoin Forum Mailing List.

I will send out two coins to someone (chosen at random) on the Pick and Pass Mission List.

The receiver will keep one of the coins, add one coin to the mission and send it on to the person of their choosing from the list.

That receiver, will in turn, choose a coin, add a coin and send it on.

 

So each participant receives two coins to choose from.

In the end, the last person, sends the remaining two coins back to me.

 

I choose 25 people because at 2 weeks a person.... 25 people will take approximately one year.

 

Interested? Let's hear it! :D

I think it is a good idea for everyone to check their adresses in the googlespreadsheet. I looked through it now and noticed some errors, so fairyhoney, please check it out, yours is not right.

Butterfly_lady also if you signed up here.

There may be more aslo that I do not know.

I'm not sure if you have enough participants yet, but this sounds like a mission that I could be involved with. I checked myself in the google spreadsheet, and my info is correct.

 

If there is a slot, I am interested!

Okay, that's 27-28 people. I'll cut it off there and will generate a list of names tomorrow morning. Thanks for the interest!

Hey, Chicka! Hope you're weathering the cooler temperatures ok!

 

I had a thought about your mission. Given the interest, have you considered turning this mission into a cointest/race?

 

I think you're up to (if not already past) 30 participants. These 30 could be divided into two groups of 15, and the "race" portion could be a friendly competition among us coiners. This way, everyone still gets to participate, and it doesn't necessarily take an entire year? The prize for the winning group would be bragging rights, as I'm not sure anyone has 15 coins ready to offer as prizes!

 

Just a thought...looking forward to seeing this mission in action!

Hmmm... let me see if I understand. Or rather, let me change the mission to this.

 

Two groups of 15, with myself serving as the beginning person and ending person of the cointest.

I will mail out two packages of three coins to someone on Team 1 and someone on Team 2.

I will randomly pick names to be on the two teams. I reserve the right to "arrange" the teams so that equal number of overseas players (if there are any) will be on each team.

The package will contain a third coin that each participant will have to log as discovered in order to get credit for their team.

I will choose a member from the winning team, at random, to receive a special geocaching package from me. (Will contain at least one coin and one pathtag.)

 

Teams are upcoming.

Cool, hey I'm happy to be on either team :lol:

 

Since you have this East/West/North/South thing set up, does that mean that instead of picking a person off the list, we are supposed to send it to the next person on the list? Doesn't really matter to me, just want the clarification.
