Player of the Week: Ken Kellar (KenLaur)
Sometimes, our helpful players aren’t just players, they’re trusty folks with a heartfelt investment in Munzee. This week’s player of the week is always there to chat up new players, teach them about the workings of Munzee, network/help out with Munzee events, and of course, provide them with essential Munzee supplies. This week’s Player of the Week is Ken Kellar, aka Kenlaur!
Who are you? Kenlaur
Where in the world do you live? Frankford, Ontario Canada
How long have you played Munzee? About 1 1/2 years
How did you find Munzee? I read something about a new geolocation gamecalled Munzee in a Geocaching log. I did a web search for Munzee and checked the website to see how many where in my area. I only found 4 within a 200 km radius and all fairly close to me. Unfortunately I only had a Windows Phone (no Windows app back then) so had to wait until I got a new phone which I did shortly after. I quickly started growing the area map to attract new players and have been hooked ever since.
What do you enjoy most about Munzee?
I enjoy getting out and growing the map, meeting other Munzee players, and teaching new players about Munzee. I also enjoy ClanWars in which I sponsor Team Geohobbies. Its great to have a goal each month to push for.
A recent highlight was meeting Team Munzee (Rob and TJ) in Niagara Falls Ontario in October 2013 at the Munzee Crosses the border event where we had players come from as far away as Quebec to join in.
What is on your wish list?
I’m very happy with how the game is progressing so far. So if I had to pick something that would make the game easier is to have a breakdown of what type of Munzees we have deployed in our weekly summary, and maybe regional leaderboards.
Tell us about yourself!
My real name is Ken Kellar aka Kenlaur, and I am the owner of www.geohobbies.ca which is an authorized Munzee retailer. I work as a Medic for a local ambulance service, and run my own medical response company. Here’s my Social Munzee!
I get out and Munzee whenever I can with my Girlfriend Laura (who was the “Laur” of Kenlaur until she opened her own Munzee account under the trailname Lauralin). I also get out with Mike (Staygold678) locally, and Jake and Mark (MunzeeRailfan – 1st ever POTW, and Canadaian Zombie) whenever I get up to their area.
