|Newsflash nr 79 Maart 2012
Last weekend was the 4th ACE event in Hengelo (GLD, NL) and the 3rd time for us at the event. The weather was great, so saturday afternoon, we went to Hengelo with our caravan. We really enjoyed a sunny couple of hours near the camper oof the organisation.
The next day was the event and despite te fact that we where inside with our booth, we still enjoyed the beautifil sunny day. Below is a picture of vlindermeisje and kruimbol lady together with woejam girl, while they are playing the game Treasure Hunt.
On april, 7 we will be at the "Dosenfishen im Ruhrtal event" near Dortmund.
For the visitors, we have a nice surprise. Print this form and take it with you to the event. At our booth, you can get a small gift for it.
The week after, we are in Belgium at the 2nd edition of the Burgse Beer event.
For this event we have designed and produced the event Geocoin.
You can now reserve the geocoin. It will be sold at the event. There is a RE version (antique bronze) and a LE version (antique silver). The SE edition is for the event organisation (polished gold).
Just look here how to make the geocoin(s) reservation.

|Titanic, 100 years Geocoin
On April 15th, 2012 it is 100 years ago the Titanic sank.
The RMS Titanic was the second of three luxurious ships of the Olymic classe ocean liners. During the first trip of the Titanic in April 1912, the ship collided with an iceberg; a part of the starboard side was pierced on several places, and the ship sank within three hours. 1522 people died. Although this was not the bigges shipping disaster in history, given the number of victims, it was the most known, especially because the ship was known as "unsinkable".
On the front is the Titanic with the iceberg (in glitter enamel). The back was made in the shape of a ships buoy, with a real rope around it. In the middle of the buoy is a pathtag with a unique number, which can be logged on pathtags.com.
This beautiful geocoin is 50mm in diameter and 8mm thick.
Trackable at geocaching.com with its own icon.:

Troy Geocoin Synomosía - Satin Gold LE
A beautiful new edition of the Troy Geocoin: a Satin gold with purple.
The Trojan horse: a very clever idea which helped the greek to conquer Troy. A wonderful hiding place which very well could fit in the Geocaching world.
On the front of the coin, the image of the godes Aphrodite, Hera en Athena who triggered the war and Achillas with the Trojan horse , who ended it.
In the modern Greek language, you still find a saying which was initiated during the Trojan war: 'fear the Greek even if they bring presents'. You find this hidden on the frontside of the coin.
The backside of the coin is based on the shield of Achillas, in a curved form with all zodiacs as described in the works of Homerus. In the middle, you find Achilles on his battle wagon.
Size : 50 x 47 mm, 5 mm thick
Trackable at geocaching.com with its own icon.
You can find these and other new coins at our website in New geocoins.
This tag is large enough to be seen, but sized just right to fit in a 35mm cointainer. You also can attach your favourite item to it.
Size: 38mm diameter
Trackable at Geocaching.com with its own icon.
You can find these and other trackables at our website in Trackables.
