Pedal for Equality! International Women’s Day Point Increase and Freeze Tag Sponsorship

Happy International Women’s Day from MHQ! To celebrate the day the Munzee way, all Flat Lous will be worth DOUBLE points from 00:01 to 23:59 MHQ time today! And MHQ is proud to announce a new sponsorship this International Women’s Day.

A Pedaled Protest

What we love even more than extra points is the fierce lady behind them, as well as her crew of fellow empowered female cyclists. Louise will be joining her new cycling team the InternationElleswhose goal is to bring attention to the fact that there is a gender gap in the world of cycling. This is most apparent in the Tour de France which does not allow women to participate or offer a women’s version of the complete race. To demonstrate their disagreement with this dated system, female athletes from around the world will be clipping in and pedaling for equality. The InternationElles will ride the entirety of the Tour de France route, completing each stage the day before the men begin their sanctioned race.

Each year the French cycling team Donnons des Elles au Vélo J-1 ride the entirety of the Tour de France route before the men begin their sanctioned race. This year the team invited an international group of women to join them in their peaceful protest. The InternationElles is comprised of a team of 10 women from across the globe united in the quest of promoting women’s cycling as they bike for gender equality.

Freeze Tag Sponsorship

The InternationElles are entirely self-funded, leaving them on the lookout for sponsors and partners to unite in their cause. Inspired by Louise and her team’s dedication and in unity with their cause, the Freeze Tag Team is proud to announce our official support of the InternationElles on this International Women’s Day.

In celebration of International Women’s Day a portion of the proceeds from every Flat Lou purchase this weekend will go toward Freeze Tag’s sponsorship of the InternationElles. You can pick up your Flat Lou at the Freeze Tag Online Store to show your support!

Exposing Inequality

For the past four years, the Donnons des Elles au Vélo J-1 have biked in protest to stand up for women’s cycling, which is shockingly still marginalized in a year as progressive as 2019. The goal of the peaceful cycling protest is to change opinions about the capability and role of women in cycling. Just this past week, a major cycling race in Belgium had to be stopped after a female cyclist caught up to the men. The solution? “Neutralizing” the race in order to reinstate the gender gap.

After decades of fighting for an equal foot in the race, women are still excluded from the Tour de France. Female cyclists have been fighting to establish a sustainable women’s stage race that can rival it, with their efforts dating back to 1955. A host of issues, included financial burdens, organizational struggles, media bias, and mockery, have held female cyclists back from participating in a race filled with the same caliber of prestige as men are allotted.

The Big Picture

While the exclusion of female cyclists from the world’s biggest cycling race embodies an underlying current of sexism and exclusion in the event, in a fuller sense, Louise and her fellow female cyclists are striving to bring overall awareness to gender inequalities in cycling. The Donnons des Elles au Vélo J-1, InternationElles, and countless female cyclists from around the world are faced with continual disparagement that prohibits them from participating in their sport on the same caliber as their male counterparts.

Threaded throughout the sport of cycling is an undercurrent of sexism, from podium girls to select cycling company advertisement. Female cyclists pack in the same grueling training regimen as men, yet they are faced with prize money discrepancies, lack of women’s races, and lack of race coverage in the case that events do take place. These continual practices put female cyclists at a constant disadvantage, a position which this band of innovative ladies is hoping to eradicate and redefine.

Stay tuned for future updates about Louise, her team, and their cycling quest. The entire group of empowered female athletes will be preparing for their over 3,400 kilometer bike tour this July. The ladies will start in Brussels on July 5, concluding their race in Paris on July 27, demonstrating their athletic prowess.

You can show your support for Louise by deploying your own Flat Lou this International Women’s Day!

Munzee on!

It’s Almost Time for Munzee Madness 8! Details, Sales and More!

It’s almost that time of the year again— Munzee Madness season! That’s right, Sunny California is gearing up for the longest running player run events of the year.

To celebrate the event, the entire California Freeze Tag office will be attending Munzee Madness 8! Freeze Tag will also be hosting their own event in conjunction with the Munzee Madness player sponsored events in order to provide double the fun! Even if you can’t make it out to California to attend the events in person, there are still ways to participate from home.

Munzee Madness Details 

Mark your calendars and cancel your plans, because MM8 will take place from Friday, March 8 to Saturday, March 9. You can find the full Munzee Madness schedule at the end of the post. There will be a variety of events for all attendees to participate in!

Are you interested in meeting a portion of the team behind everyone’s favorite global scavenger hunt? The entire Freeze Tag California office will be in attendance, including Craig Holland (Cholland86), Mick Donahoo (fixitman), Mari Rann (Kirikat), and Tamara Sahagun (Raan). There will also be a dinner hosted by Freeze Tag on Saturday night in order to allow players more opportunity to interact with the people behind the scenes after a full day of MM8 Road Rally!

There will be a number of special event badges for players to earn throughout the weekend, as well as an abundance of munzees and specials to capture. No sneak peaks this time! If you want to see the new badge designs, you’ll have to earn them in person…

Virtual Garden Fun for All and Sales!

Whether you can attend the event in person or you’ll be celebrating virtually by playing the game at home, there are a variety of ways you can participate in MM8 regardless of location. We are excited to share the designs of four gardens that will surround the event, so that all players worldwide can earn some CapOn points. Choose from the Craig ParkOde to 1849, Officer Down, or Ode to q22q17 to deploy in! You can access a listing of a number of Virtual Gardens in the area here.

Why limit yourself to deploying in one Garden? In celebration of MM8, we decided to release some special offers in the Freeze Tag Online Store. Previously, Virtual Trail Munzee Credits could only be purchased in packs of five that included five Virtual Munzees as well. Now, we are releasing individual Virtual Trail Munzee Credits that includes one Virtual Trail Credit and no Virtual Munzees!

Our Virtual collection will now include Temporary Virtuals, Virtual Trail Munzee Credits (multiple), and the Virtual Trail Munzee Credit (single). All three of these items will be 19 percent off through Monday, February 25 at 10:00 MHQ time. Deploying in one of these Virtual Gardens is a great way to support the events even if you can’t make it in person!

Have you never deployed in a Virtual Garden before? Don’t worry, we’ve made it easy for you! Check out this step-by-step tutorial to help build a Garden today. All you need to do is purchase some Virtuals, maybe a few Color Credits, and select a garden to start deploying in.

If you can make it out to Cali for the weekend, we’d love to see you! And if you can’t, make sure you join in on the fun virtually! Don’t forget you can host your own Munzee Events as well, and it sounds like April would be a good time to start.

Munzee on!

FANCY FLAT ROB:

After his stint as Flat Santa, Flat Rob thinks it’s time he step up his game! The new Fancy Flat Robs are bouncing munzees that work like Myths and Pouch Creatures based on variant designs of the original Flat Rob. Fancy Flat Robs will bounce to regular Flat Robs and regular Virtuals with a green color credit (listed below), and an additional other type based on the variant. These will bounce every 12 hours or when captured.

There will be three Fancy Flat Rob variants available, but players will only be able to own one variant type. Fancy Flat Robs will cost $25 and they will have the ability to be nudged by the owner. There will be a limited number of each type available. These are not LIVE yet, but they will be available HERE at 12:00 MHQ.

We’re working on a new line of badges for capturing each variant type which will be released soon, but you WILL receive a unique badge for deploying a Fancy Flat Rob variant. Please note it is the same badge for all three variants, so you won’t miss out since you are restricted to one Fancy Flat Rob type.

We’re excited to bring a new gameplay aspect to Flats and give you even more crazy creatures to chase after! To celebrate, regular Flat Robs will be 18% off when you use the discount code at checkout. Please note that the Fancy Flat Rob will not be eligible for the 18% discount, but you can still check out with it in the basket. The discount will just not be applied to that item.
