Hello MnGCA!

AP and I met some of you at MOGA last year and had fun watching you run wild during the competitions. It was our first MOGA and you guys definately added to the fun! Very Happy

I'm not sure if this post should be here, or in the Travel bugs section, but decided to start the thread here I guess.

We just wanted to let everyone know that the 2007 Iowa Geocoins are on sale and available to pre-order. We've kept the overall price extremely close to 'actual cost' to keep the coin available at a rock bottom price, and need about 100 more coins to sell in order to keep that rock bottom price at $6.50. If interested please go here: http://www.iowageocachers.org/sale_items.php

Please feel free to ask questions and/or post comments.



Thanks! Have a good evening everybody!

Thanks for the heads up on this coin. I've moved it to the proper section of the Forum.

Been a while since I ordered my coin, can we get a status update on it? When do you think they'll ship?

Can you really get away with hiding a cache in a corn field down in Iowa? I'll have to remember to do my caching run AFTER harvest time.

AB-n-AP have not received them yet but are expecting them any day now. They were hoping to have them before Christmas but it isnt looking good for that.

As far as I know AB-n-AP did not order any extras, so you'll have to find someone that did and is willing to sell one. You can post a request in this IGO forum if you'd like.
