    Default 2008 Maine Geocoin

    I haven't heard anything for a while. Is there going to be an '08 Maine Geocoin?

    I was hoping to have final numbers by this weekend, but had other things I was trying to finish (pellet stove install and some other stuff). Has to be this next week.

    I agree. I think it should now be a 2009 geocoin if we do it.

    I kind of agree,it would only be a matter of changing the one digit from an 8 to a 9

    It would be too bad to miss lovely ol' 2008. Maybe a combo coin?

    Default 2008 Coin

    Question: Is there a designated person or committee that normally coordinates both the creation and purchase of these coins? Seems too bad to miss a year.
    Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.

    No, there is not. Sudonim had done a great job the past few years helping us with the ordering and collection of payments, but no one has stepped up to the plate to see that the coin process flows smoothly.

    On October 31st of last year I got the ball rolling with this thread, after the subject was brought up in Maine chat the night before. In that thread, I also sent out a couple pleas for someone to take the coin project on and help Sudonim with the process. And yet, no one offered. A few people pushed at different times and it seems like the coin will happen, over a year after I started that thread.

    I hate to sound like a broken record, but if members want to produce a coin or see any other project happen, someone needs to step up and take it on. If we're going to have a coin next year, we are already behind compared to last year, since it's already November 11th and it hasn't been discussed.

    As far as whether to keep this a 2008 coin or make it 2009, I think I lean toward 2008, but will go with the majority.

    Actually, Your wrong,
    I volunteered on several posts to help get the ball rolling and was, of course, shot down and my ideas questioned. You can ask Medaweisla about that because she READ the posts. Or I can cut and paste them to this thread so you can read them !

    BTW, We were introduced to landsharkz by Hollora , ordered our 1 st coin in June, recieved it end of August, Got a CUSTOM Icon with only 250 coins ordered, Approved the design of our second coin Yesterday and We should have it in February.
    Thank You Hollora !!!!!!!!

    Maybe the board shold use another coin maker ???????
