The last cointest on GCMaine was in 2007 (Thank You - CacheMaine!) - Time for another!
What is a Cointest? It is fun game or activity, done on forums, where the prize is a Geocoin. These are frequently done on the Geocaching.com Forums for Geocoins. I have decided to bring some of the fun to GeocachingMaine site, again, for this Christmas/Holiday Season. A chance to win a new, unactivated, Antique Gold Pocket Decoder Geocoin from The Caching Place.
First The Cointest what do you have to do? Post to this thread on our forums, a short description of what you do on Christmas Eve and Christmas morning. It can contain special memories, times past, what you will do this year, special food you eat, things you do, traditions, etc. Whatever you are comfortable sharing with others and of course on line.
If you celebrate another holiday such as Hanukkah (etc.), dont worry just post what you do and the fun you have over your holiday. Everyone is welcome to play!
Second How often can I enter? Just once ~ one (1) time per member of GCMaine. I don't want this to end up being folks trying to post more than others. Make your post meaningful. Everyone can enter if registered on the site, but, I will not accept entries from MY family . Your entry must meet the requirements above. If you have any questions please PM or EM me.
Third How long is this cointest, when do entries end? When I get on line Christmas morning. It might be early and it might be late depends on what may be under my tree and where I may go! Soooo, dont try to second guess me for your timing to place an entry on Christmas Morning or you may be too late or maybe not.
Fourth How will I choose the winner? Who will decide? Total number of posts will be put into a random number generator and one number will be chosen. IF the number chosen is my post or a post where someone has made just a comment and not an entry I will run the generator for the next number who qualifies to be the winner .
Lastly How will you know if you won? I will post the results right here in this thread and contact the winner to arrange delivery of your coin.
Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays and may the 2010 New Year bring health, happiness and lots of new caching adventures to one and all!
