Some said it would never happen, but the coins are coming, the coins are coming!


This is primarily a coin distribution event, however, given the season, it will be a nice time to get together, have your favorite beverage and maybe a snack or light meal, and take a break from all that Christmas shopping too.
The event is scheduled from 1 to 4pm, hope everyone can make it. But, who's gettin' the coin #1, you ask?
Well, to avoid fighting about the choice of prime coins, I'm bringing tickets. Anyone present who bought coins (and anyone in Maine who ordered coins, no need to be present) gets 1 ticket. We will draw for coin #1000, 500, 100, and 10-1. That way any "interesting" numbers get passed out evenly. If you get #1, imagine the trade possibilities :)
I know that this event is getting close to Christmas, but I wanted to make sure that the coins will be here. No sense having a coin event and not having any coins. Hope you can all make it. (And don't forget to bring your favorite TB or other coins to trade too)

Unfortunatly, I can't attend the coin distribution event, but I can still be entered in the drawing? What do I need to do? Thanks

I think you need to be there. That was what I understand.

In the description it states "(and anyone in Maine who ordered coins, no need to be present) gets 1 ticket", but it doesn't seem clear to me.

I think it means that if you live in Maine and bought coins you get a ticket for the drawing whether you are at the event or not.

If you do not live in Maine and bought coins then you get a ticket if you attend the event.

Yes I believe Sabby has it right. I think that was what he told me.

That's right Sabby. Anyone in Maine is in the drawing for numbers (and that includes DrBugMan and EGSG BTW)

Hmmm... Let's not take this TOO literally. LOL! I won't at the event since I have to be in New Hampshire. I won't be in Maine! :eek: :eek: :eek:

Someone draw our ticket tomorrow please. We've got mother-in-law chores tomorrow and hard to explain why we would mush through the snow up north instead of taking her to a senior event. Happy early holidays to all.

If you ordered coins, you already have a ticket.

Did not make it to the event, but I ordered and paid for coins. Can't wait to get my hands on them. Would have like to have been there, but a very busy time of the year.

Who won what anyways?
