There have been a few discussions about requesting a Souvenir from Groundspeak for Canada day weekend 2017 (Canada's 150th Celebration)

I created a petition - If you are for the idea I will be presenting it to Groundspeak, and hopefully reducing their mailflow for requests.

 

Please fill out the Petition! Please redistribute across Canada! (SERIOUSLY!!!! POST THIS TO YOUR LOCAL BOARD!!)

J'ai créé une pétition - Si vous êtes à l'idée que je présenterai à Groundspeak, et en réduisant l'espérons leur mailflow pour les demandes.

 

S'il vous plaît remplir la pétition! S'il vous plaît redistribuer à travers le Canada!

So here's question. I haven't checked over my souvenirs to see if I can answer it myself, but thought I'd just post for discussion's sake. We have souvenirs for states/countries, and global souvenirs for caching on dates, or types and whatnot... Are there time-based souvenirs also restricted to a region? Or more broadly, are there souvenirs that have been awarded for more than one property check? Or would a souvenir like this require a bit of extra custom coding?

 

If not, then it should be easy to implement; and I might be surprised if they hadn't already (or wouldn't have..already .. ah grammer) considered creating one for the event.

(but either way, great to have the petition to raise awareness and show how much it's desired :))

 

Presumably it would be awarded for finding a geocache located in Canada on July 1. Should be easy enough to implement. Should being the operative word :P

The region-specificity might end up being an issue. The 'Get Outdoors' souvenir for this past Saturday (June 11th) was originally announced as US-only. That caused a minor uproar, then the souvenir was changed to being global.

Hm, in that case I think could understand. What about "get outdoors" is really US-centric? Why not make it global? As opposed to a country birthday souvenir which really is time and region specific. But I guess that answers the question that it is already technically possible.

From the petition:

"The souvenir should be available to anyone finding a geocache in any of the 10 provinces and 3 territories between June 29 and July 5, 2017 ( a super long weekend!)."

Signed! What a great idea. Thanks for suggesting it. :)

 

I've just started geocaching again. I tried it out a decade ago but the gps wasn't mine. It is SO great to see how many more caches there are out there and so many more participants. The vibrancy of the community is great! (And this is a good example of that.) :D

Signed.

That would be a great idea to find a cache in Canada on a certain day. Unfortunately, I don't think that will happen but I do think there is some sort of souvenir planned involving Canada. Maybe August 21st.

I don't think a "solar eclipse" souvenir would mean anything the same as a Canada Day 2017 souvenir.

 

:rolleyes:

But the eclipses' path doesn't pass through Canada.

That is exactly why I asked.. Also it seems the Signal visit to Canada would occur way before July or August

And posted to the blog. :)

I'm glad some grammatical issues were corrected for the blog post. But not everyone is a stickler for 'and' vs 'or' and 'their' vs 'its'. :ph34r:
