Want an Ontario Provincial Plaques to post?

23 posts in this topic

I have photos and coordinates for an Ontario Provincial Plaque.

 

If you want to complete the waymark and if you do not live in Ontario and have not posted any waymarks in this category, let me know. First come first served.

Admittedly my photos are not great as I completely expected the plaque to already be waymarked. I was wrong. they should be sufficient enough for approval (they are legible).

 

the waymark:

Bon -- I snagged it, but haven't had a chance to work it today (sick kiddo). Will try and get it up for review before Canada Day, eh?

Glad you grabbed it. Let me know if you need any help with it.

BTW do you ever see those square-headed Robertson screws down there in the South? They are really great, most common screw type in Canada but like the metric system they never really caught on in the USA.

Nope :) Never. All the screws I have ever seen are the round ones. I have seen a few square-headed nails, if that helps! :)

It's OK - if those yankees are so heavily into the status quo that they'd rather continue to struggle with their inferior Phillips screws that's OK with me...:lol:

not sure why or how but I received a notice two days ago that the waymark was categorized, with saopaulo1 as the poster and published by wayfrog. No idea how that happened, two people able to grab the same uncategorized waymark. And no offense to anyone, bu BB's long description was, well, much longer.

Benchmark Blasterz - The next un-waymarked Ontario historical plaque that I find will be yours. Might be months until I find one though. Need any other categories from Ontario? I just don;t have the time to write up many waymarks these days, but still have interests in seeing them waymarked. It's not a game, not a competition, and I have no problem with supplying others with photos and coordinates.

Oh and by the way, the screw heads are not square - it's the screw driver tips that are square :)

Thanks Bon for the compliment on my work on the waymark -- I try to do more than the absolute minimum to make the waymark interesting. It's not about the numbers or the icon, but the STORY for me.  

I'll look forward to your next Ontario Plaque -- this time ping me via the message center and let's exchange info and photos by email. At way no one else can snag it out of Uncat. :)

I will also try to find you a plaque.  I've had too many of the wrong intendees take designated uncategorized waymarks.  Therefore, we are using a different method.  Let's see if Bon Echo can find a plaque before I do.

in the future I will post here first to find a user, and will supply them with the coordinates and info. I will still create the Uncategorized waymark as a way to post the photos (also because the final waymark will give me some credit), but hopefully that will be too little for anyone to run with it. We'll see.

Nice work BB for getting the same one approved in First of its Kind.

I create an Unfinished waymark in the correct category which then includes all the relevant variables.  I share the URL of the Unfinished waymark with only my friend.  The friend steals all that is needed from the Unfinished waymark.  After the friend's own waymark is published, I then reuse the Unfinished waymark for something completely different.

That is BRILLIANT!! :) 

 

and thanks Bon - I was hoping to find a place to recycle my work and tell the story of the company.
