Why, when I will not even be close to completing this for the event since I didn't get on board till November, am I still so sad I missed filling my grid hole yesterday due to incapacitating bedridden illness? Maybe a new level of PNG is needed -- attach a magnet to my front door, publish it and not find it myself until a day like that : )

Yep, we got them all done except 2/29/12. We were pretty worried about December, but it turned out just fine even with graduation in Michigan.

On today's Podcacher podcast, Groundspeak announced that they will have a souvenir for February 29th. No real details were given, such as if it would apply to any cache found 2/29, or just events, or just some type of official event.

From the weekly email:
Quote:

February 29 - This Day in Geocaching History

In the 11 years and 9 months since the first geocache was placed, there is single date on which only a small fraction of geocachers have ever logged a cache. We suspect that's because this particular date has only happened twice in geocaching history; it's February 29, also known as leap day.

Given our penchant for all things that leap (frogs, horses, excited geocachers), we wanted to mark the third leap day in geocaching history — February 29, 2012 — by seeing how many accounts can log a cache that day.

Last February 29, way back in 2008, 36,696 distinct accounts logged an "Attended" or "Found it" on a cache. Given the growth of the geocaching community since then, we think we can double that number this year. But 73,392 distinct accounts logging a cache is a lofty goal; it's the second highest number of accounts to log a cache in a single day. The current record, 78,313, was set on 10/10/10. Considering that 10/10/10 was a Sunday and February 29 will be a Wednesday, it is going to require a huge push to reach our goal.

So, talk to your fellow geocachers, your friends, and your co-workers about going geocaching (and logging their find) on February 29. In order to count toward the goal, people only have to log a single cache.

Everyone who logs a "Found it" or "Attended" this February 29 will receive the Leap Day Souvenir on their profile. As an added bonus, Premium Members who love to look at their "finds by date" statistics most likely see a blank square on the calendar on February 29. This is your chance to fill in the square —the 366th day of geocaching!

Is anyone attending the New Ulm Breakfast event next weekend that could bring the coin along if it is available? I'd do the swap of money there for it? Just trying to make this a bit easier..
Down to 16 days left to go and the big open streak is almost finished!

The coins for that event won't be available until the night of the event.
