FORUM DERAILED!! So anyhow, where were we with this 2008 geocoin discussion? SNOWSHOES!
Has anyone taken a crack at a design? Is that our next step?
I heard a pair of snowshoes side by side. Possibly with one having a tracking number and/or the year 2006 and the other a different tracking number and/or the year 2008.
What's the next step after that Andy? Brad?

Since, I have been working on a coin - I know one sticky wicket which delays things a lot the first of the year is the Chinese New Year. If you don't get things in before mid-January to February - you loose a lot of time. Guess it depends on when in the year you want to get the coin out.
Coins, I am learning, are a lot of work. Thank you to all who have worked on ours in the past (and will in the future).
Did someone say Hollora is working on a coin?
In cahoots with someone else I know. Heee, heee, he - hoooo, hoo, ho -
The rarer the coin the better. One every couple of years sounds better. We can judge the popularity of Geo-coins and changing trends better. Winter theme sounds great. Some caches that are unavailable to cachers with out water transportation, become available when our waterways freeze over.
I am somewhat talented in graphic arts and maybe able to help. I am semi-retired, so I have alot of free time. (When I'm not geo-caching.)
A design contest, with a prize for the winner maybe?

Being a newbie and not having found a Maine Goecoin yet, I was thinkign what a "non-Mainer" might like in a Maine coin. Well it won't be Baldacci on the front and Susan Gendron on the back but how about a coin shaped like the State of Maine with a hiker in snowshoes on one side and Stephen King chopping down a pine tree on the other? I'll keep trying, but I'm sure I can come up with something!?!
