The first MnGCA geonickels have been released.

They can be tracked here.

Were some of these going to get sent to some of the outstate locations? I am just curious. There was talk of this, but don't remember where the talk ended. Either that or if someone is coming to the Burritos buddies event in hutch if they would bring a few along. I am planning on going to that. Thanks,

I was planning on passing some of these out at the Burrito Buddies in Hutch. I will make sure to save you one, number 24 if I have it!

I've dropped off 26 of these nickels now.

Hope to start seeing some action on them soon.

The others went to Esko Climber, Lucid, and Jonas to distribute.
If you want one, you might want to follow the logs for those individuals.

The low numbers were reserved and I plan to send them to the people who contributed to the project in numerical order then release the remaining low numbers to the wild, once fishing season is over.
I have 10 others that I am distributing too.
I have distributed some of these already.

They should be distributed pretty well throughout the state.

Will there be a link on the MNGCA website for people to link to the http://mngca.geocoin.net/ website? Cachers who find these may like an easy link on the MNGCA page to track these or log their find. Maybe this is planned???

On the geocoin.net site, the pages for many wooden nickels say, "No owner for MnGCA Wooden Nickel #nnn exists." If we find or are given a wooden nickel, do we own it? I haven't pushed the button yet.

If you keep it you own it.
I guess you could "own" it and then release it too?
In the end in this case. It really don't matter I guess

All the nickels you gave me Merkman have been put into caches. Except for one, which I have in my possesion. 2-3 made it outside the country and another 2-3 made it outside MN.
