+tsunrisebey Posted July 25, 2010 Share Posted July 25, 2010 2012 is a long way off, I know. However there is a reason I'm taking this poll as I would like to see Montana receive some serious consideration in the bidding process and see if it's even worth my time working towards a proposal. I'll have been to 3 GCF's once I've attended the Minnesota shindig. For those who know their geocoins, know that as far as geocaching goes, geocoins are the one thing I really love. This is the one event that I have made a priority to get to each year. I realize some of you didn't even know Montana was a state until I posted this and some of you probably don't know where it's even located on the map. We're below Alberta, to the east of Idaho and west of North/South Dakota. We're the 4th largest state and it's really tough to complete the Delorme challenge So what I'm looking for is by a show of posting who would SERIOUSLY consider coming out to Montana for Geocoinfest if it could actually pull of winning the bid? I'm looking at a 2012 bid. Now other than the fact that you would have a awesome Montana host with a truly engaging personality here are some things to think about if you don't even know what's in Montana. 1. Me, tsun coins specifically the Cache only Cowgirl coin and my hike your arse off caches Helena, MT 2. Close to Glacier National Park 3. Close to Yellowstone National Park 4. Free nutella for everyone 5. Mountains 6. Lakes and rivers for those inclined to flyfish in Fall 7. Lots of great places for caching 8. Ghost towns 9. Great wild west history 10. Lots of wildlife; elk, moose, Griz, Mountain goats, bald eagles, etc. 11. No rush hour traffic and the Interstate is never packed 12. Cowboys and Cowgirls 13. Fresh air, clean water 14. me 15. Close to Canada, we speak Canadian 16. Mark us off your map I can totally brag up a storm about Montana. Missoula/Bozeman/Great Falls are all within 2 hours or less, so plenty of airports to fly in and out of. Helena has an airport although it may seem really little to most of you but there are great wildlife mounts inside Anyhow, can you please post here if you would seriously consider coming to Montana for GCF. I am running this thread for a reason, I kind of have to prove that people would consider coming here for the event so they will take me seriously. Thanks! tsun Quote Link to comment
