Meet Munzee Munday: Dale Swinehart

Here at Munzee we’re constantly encouraging our players to meet and greet and build the personal relationships that make this game so great. Our team continues to grow and we’re excited with the addition of Dale Swinehart. (You will see some references to Munzee Marketplace – Cocoa Beach. We’ll be introducing that soon.)

Dale Swinehart, Manager of the Munzee Marketplace Cocoa Beach

Where are you from?

Born in a small town in Michigan then moved to Rockledge, FL when I was 9 years old. Spent the next 21 years in Rockledge before moving to Merritt Island. We have lived on Merritt Island now for last 18 years.

Tell us about yourself:
I have one son from a previous marriage who is 20 years old and lives in Rockledge still.  I also have two adult step kids ages 29 and 27 who were from Barb’s first marraige. I met Barb in 1998 in an AOL Chat room online. We have been together ever since. She is my soulmate without a doubt. I am very fortunate to have a partner that loves doing what I love doing. We both love Munzee, have worked side by side for many years now and pretty much do everything together.

How long have you worked for Munzee?
I work for Munzee??!!!

What do you enjoy most about Munzee?
First and foremost I have to say the people that work for Munzee. We met Trish and Rob a few years ago the Texas Challenge. It was a chance meeting that has changed our lives. We were fortunate to be able to spend extended time with team Munzee and they truly are an exceptional group of people. Next I would have to say the players we have interacted with. We have made some really great friends through Munzee.

What are some of your other hobbies?
Things I love but find very little time to enjoy besides Munzee would be kayaking, hiking through the woods, [caching] and playing/coaching soccer (if I tried to play soccer right now,
I probably would have a heart attack).

Any last words?
Yes, be sure to come visit the all new Munzee Marketplace in Cocoa Beach, FL. It will be a one of a kind experience.  Our grand opening is slated for February 29th, 2016 on world famous Cocoa Beach, FL.

Play the game that makes you happy. If you are not having fun then you should find a new game. Life is too short not to be happy.

Fitbit Re-Authorization for Munzee

UPDATE: We will be updated the Munzee Fitness data on Monday at 00:01 CST so that all data from January is collected. The If your data hasn’t been collected and you reauthorize your Fitbit before then, the information will be included.


 

We experienced an issue that we had some Munzee Fitness authorization tokens expire and were deleted from the database automatically. Those of you who noticed you had to reauthorize several times a week were experiencing the issue. (See image below.)
Screenshot_2016-02-03-15-51-30

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The issue has been addressed and going forward, you (hopefully) shouldn’t have to reauthorize again. If you look at your Fitbit profile settings under Applications, you’ll notice Munzee is still authorized, but we may not have a current token in our database. Reauthorizing gives us a new token we can store. (See image below.)

Edit Profile My Applications

 

 

 

 

 

Coincidentally, if you ever want to revoke access for Munzee or any other application, that is the place to do it. Simply click the Revoke button.

If you continue to have issues, please contact support@munzee.com. Thank you, and Munzee on!

Munzee’s Birthday and MHQ Bash 3

Yesterday we posted about Easter and Spring events. We’ve got some pretty big events this year, too, though. Here’s some information regarding Munzee’s 5th Birthday and MHQ Bash 3.

Munzee’s 5th Birthday

It’s hard to believe it’s been 5 years. We couldn’t have gotten to this point without our amazing players, and we can’t thank you enough. We want to spread the celebration, though, so we’re taking our birthday party on the road! This year, we’ll be celebrating Munzee’s 5th birthday in Denver, Colorado! We’re still finalizing details, but members of Team Munzee will be in Denver from June 30th through July 4th. We’ll be posting more information as the time draws closer, but we’ve got events on the calendar so you can let us know you’ll be there!

MHQ Bash 3

MHQ Bash kicked off an annual tradition of getting involved with our community and players on a face-to-face, personal level. We grew upon that to make MHQ Bash 2 bigger and better. We’re continuing that with MHQ Bash 3 this year! We invite everyone to come hang out with us for a weekend of Munzee fun on October 7th, 8th, and 9th here in McKinney, Texas. Events are already on the calendar, and we’ll be posting full information regarding locations and packages soon.

We’re extremely excited to meet new people and see old friends at these events! We hope to see you there! Munzee on!

Gearing Up for Spring Events!

Well Rob, errr, Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow this morning, and an early Spring was predicted! That’s good because the Munzee team is ready to get out to events! Here is a list of some we’re going to!

February
2/26: Munzee with Team Munzee – February

  • Come hang out with Team Munzee on Friday, February 26th as we go out into the world and play!

2/29: Munzee Marketplace Cocoa Beach Grand Opening

  • Rob is going to be in Florida for Leap Year Day and the grand opening of the Munzee Marketplace Cocoa Beach!

March
3/4-5: Munzee Madness 5

3/19: Beyond the Pale

  • Matt is going to Vancouver (assuming freak tornadoes don’t keep him grounded again) to help kick off Easter events at the Beyond the Pale event. “Leprechaun wearing a cowboy hat”, huh? He may be able to work something out there.

That’s what we have scheduled so far, but we don’t want to stop there! If you’ve got an event planned already and want someone from MHQ there, let us know by emailing louise@munzee.com! We want to get out and grow the community as much as we can. If you haven’t planned an event yet, there’s still time! You can check out our blog post about Easter events and get in touch with the Event Queen, Louise, to get them on the calendar!

We can’t wait to see you at events! Munzee on!

New Virtual and Virtual Emerald Gardens

We’ve received a lot of questions and suggestions regarding gardens recently, so we want to address some and make a few announcements.

Emerald Gardens

Because Emerald Gardens are special release, we realize that not everyone is within close proximity to them. We are adding 5 Emerald Gardens to the map starting today at 15:00 CST. These pins are available for purchase at http://store.munzee.com/products/emerald-garden-pin and are limited in number. These locations, which are listed in the store description, have been suggested to us as hotspots for activity. We’ve added them to give more people the ability to take advantage of them for Double Point Weekend.

NOTE: There are a limited number of pins available. There is NO limit on the number of Virtual Emeralds you can buy, so please be courteous of other players.

Virtual Gardens

As we’ve said before, growing and maintaining our community is our focus for this year. A large part of this initiative is helping and encouraging the expansion of smaller and new areas. One of the ways we will be doing this will be placing virtual gardens in these areas. Over the course of the year, we will be deploying gardens all over the world. If you’d like to submit a location for a possible garden, you can go here.

If you have suggestions of new ways for us to help and get involved, please email iloveyou@munzee.com. We’d love to hear from you!

The New Munzee Store is Live!

Despite a few hiccups, the soft opening for the new Munzee online store was a success. After bug fixes and product additions, we’re pleased to announce that the new store is online! Moving forward, this will be the full-time Munzee online store. There are a few things to take notice of:

  1. The new store URL is munzeestore.myshopify.com. The old URL (store.munzee.com) will redirect you to the new store, and the old store is no longer active.
  2. The new store also includes Eventzee, Runzee, and WallaBee merchandise. When you check out, you are asked for you Munzee/WallaBee username. If you are buying products for both games and have different usernames for them, we suggest you make two separate orders to make sure that the items are awarded to the correct accounts.
  3. If you have a discount code or gift certificate for the old store, please email support@munzee.com to get a replacement for use in the new store. Gift certificates and discount codes awarded before today WILL NOT work in the new store.
  4. If you have an issue or question about your orders in the new store, please use the contact form located on the store website or email support@munzee.com.

Our goal with the new Munzee store is to provide you with new, exciting products (both gameplay and merchandise). If you have suggestions or want to see something new in the store, email iloveyou@munzee.com, and we’ll see what we can do!

Thank you for your support, and Munzee on!
