11-11-11 Multi-Event

Recommended Posts

What's the ruling on events that share a coin? Are they added or not? :)

 

We will (hopefully) soon be listing our 11-11-11 event in Samoa (we'll be flying there after the event we host in Auckland). Will we be the only hosts putting on 2 events in 2 different countries? Since Auckland is the largest Pacific Islander community in the world, we think it's ok to share the Auckland coin with an event in Samoa. ;)

We will (hopefully) soon be listing our 11-11-11 event in Samoa (we'll be flying there after the event we host in Auckland). Will we be the only hosts putting on 2 events in 2 different countries? Since Auckland is the largest Pacific Islander community in the world, we think it's ok to share the Auckland coin with an event in Samoa. ;)

 

What is a multi-event?

A multi-event is a group of event locations that share the same theme and geocoin (with the same icon).

Who can host an 11-11-11 Multi-event?

Anyone! An individual, geoaching organization or group.

 

Are there any restrictions on where I can host my event?

The event format is totally up to you. The only rule is that events that don't share the same color combination be more than 100 miles apart. Two events with the same color/metal combination have no distance restrictions.

 

What if two people would like to do an event but they live within 100 miles?

Avroair stays out of regional disputes. I would suggest the two hosts work together on the same coin or find some other solution amicably. Preference will be given to a veteran event host over new host if parties can't agree. Options such as sharing a coin, moving events further apart or dropping one event have worked in the past.

 

I think you're good to go!! - Does this mean you will be skipping the clean up duty?? :rolleyes:

Don't see why they wouldn't be added, they're a separate event. :) And technically don't all New Zealanders live on a Pacific Island? :P

Any idea when we will see coinage? :rolleyes:

Kind-of disappointed we haven't seen any pictures yet...usually, by know, there are at least sample photos.

No, we'll be at the Auckland one til the bitter end of the CITO, 1am, then we'll be home for a couple of hours before going to the airport and off to Samoa in the morning, to arrive there about 6 hours before our event in Apia.

 

Needless to say the Apia event will be somewhat more low-key than our Auckland one. Trying to ignore how much we're spending on that... It's going to be a hell of a weekend! ;)

 

Oh, and Apia, Samoa event now published - http://coord.info/GC3595P (shares the coin with the Auckland event) :)

I think that Mark said that Emma is on vacation. Maybe they will be waiting for her when she returns.

Envious, coincidentily read this article yesterday which woke me up to the logistics of two events. Good thinking, it's just the sort of thing I like to do. This year will be the last year such indulgence will be possible in Samoa.

 

Of course, there is still Raratonga for 12/12/12.

Just heard back from Emma that photos should either be emailed to each host or posted on the 11-11-11 website this week.

Yes, luckily the event is before December when it changes. Really this all came about because of dumb luck. We actually had a bit of a moment, after listing and starting to organise the AKL event, when we checked and saw we were flying into Samoa on the 11th, and then relief when we realised it's the 12th in AKL.

 

Western Samoa will be staying on the other side of the dateline, so it would be pretty easy for someone in Samoa to have two 12/12/12 events, with a short flight or a ferry trip between. ;)

The second Nova Scotia event was published yesterday by The Beagle Clan. They will have a small number of the Nova Scotia coin available at the event, so they should be included on the list.

Greetings all!!!

 

I have decided at almost the last minute to host an Event in northeast Ohio:

11-11-11 The Time To Remember GC352W4

 

Since it's so late, there will be no coin for this Event.

But, would someone who knows details about where to get the basic color scheme coins

please send me said details (TIA!!!)??? I'd like to see if I may be able to get a few

of those for this Event.

 

WOW, as a newbie Event "owner" I hope to be accepted into this great group of special folks who host these Events!!! Maybe I can get some tips to be better prepared and

to have coins made for future Multi-Events!!!

 

Thanks everyone,

Kelly (AKA GeoCharmer81)

Hi Kelly, welcome to the group and the thread.

This was the same situation we found ourselves in last year - hosting a 10/10/10 event but unaware of the multi-event coins.

 

I'll give you the same great advice Mark (Avroair) gave me - subscribe to these forums!!

 

As for getting coins for this year Geoswag will have generic ones for sale. I'm not sure if you will be able to get them before the event. Others on here may be able to answer better then I.

 

Cheers

Thanks, Bruce!!!

 

I knew about the coins-- my other addiction!!!

 

I just didn't decide till the "last minute" to do an Event!!!

There is another cacher from my area who usually does

Multi-Events who isn't doing this one.

There is another forum where a caching friend made a comment

suggesting that I of all people should do an 11-11-11 Event!!!

 

And, I do know about these forums, too. Just watch and don't post very often.

 

Planning for GeoCoinFest gave me tunnel-vision!!!

 

Safe and happy caching to all...

Kelly

 

Edit to add: if anyone knows if we can get the generic 11-11-11 Coins before the Events, please let me know!!!

The Indiana 11/11/11 event has been posted: GC35E2K

 

I would like to have a couple of non-Indiana 11/11/11 coins as prizes. Would someone like to trade theirs for one of mine, before the event? Send me an email if you are interested!

Nice pics...cannot wait to see ours. As of yesterday, all of our event coins are reserved. Now I just gotta figure out how I can host an event and work the backstage messaging table at the high school play (which Brenda is in) at the same time. I am thinking the hubby might have to run my event...gulp!

I have a bunch of pics to post. I have two events today so I won't be able to get to it quickly. Does anyone else have time to post them?

 

Edit to add, I am looking through them (a tease I know!) and looks like I am going to have to try and get every one of them! They are fabulous!
