Player of the Week: Cheryl Wright-Turner (eggbox27)
As Munzee has grown over the years, the game has evolved in so many more ways than any of the co-founders could have imagined. We’ve certainly had our fair share of growing pains, but in its essence Munzee has tried to stick to its core goal of getting people out into the world. No one knows this better than those players who have been with us since the beginning. This week’s Player of the Week is Cheryl Wright-Turner (eggbox27).
Who are you?
Where in the world do you live?
Norwich, Norfolk, UK
How long have you played Munzee?
I discovered it in September 2014 and went on a few hunts thru the Autumn and then really got into it from January 2015 and have been capping and deploying since.
How did you find Munzee?
I’ve absolutely no idea. I’m sure I saw a link somewhere and followed it and it went from there. At the time, I was on maternity leave with my youngest, and I have since used it as a good excuse to go out for a walk and get some fresh air.
What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
I love getting out and going for a walk about and finding munzees, although my pet hate is tree protector hides. I also enjoy seeing new areas and visiting new places. Events are a great way to meet new, like-minded people, and so far, I have been joint host for two with another in the planning stages. I have also managed to travel to a couple of events and hope to travel to some more in the future.
I love the fact that I have made some fantastic new friends, both for myself and my family. My youngest now has a girlfriend whom lives at the opposite end of our road whom we we met thru Munzee, and our clan members are all local players, so we help each other to meet our clan goals each month.
I met CoachV and PilseyGuy last summer at events and look forward to meeting more people over the coming year.
What is on your wish list?
To travel to McKinney, the home of Munzee, failing that Orlando, or anywhere in the states with large clusters of munzees. I have a trip to Cologne planned for later in the year so hopefully I should have fun capping there. I also wish my network provider increased their internet coverage in my local area as once out of the city coverage drops and there are some lovely areas locally I’d love to cap and deploy in which I struggle with using my current provider.
Tell us about yourself!
I’m married and blessed with 3 wonderful boys aged 9, 8 and 21 months whom often come out capping with me. The older two are great at running ahead and finding them whilst I catch up with the push chair. I’m sure in the future they will want their own accounts in the future.
I work part time in retail which I love, and am also a Beaver Scout Leader (the youngest section of Scouting in the UK) and a school governor, which enable me to put something back in the community. I met one of my best friends thru Scouting and she now munzees regularly with me.
I have lived in Norwich since I came here to study at university and haven’t left since. It is a beautiful and quiet corner of the country with a growing community of Munzeers and lots of Munzees. It is also close to the coast which I love to visit.
Other hobbies include:
Apart from Scouting and Munzeeing, I enjoy spending time with my husband and boys and going for days out..
Any last words?
I feel blessed to have been nominated, and look forward to growing the map, meeting more players and capping more Munzees!!!.
eggbox27 also included some socials, so cap away!
