Player of the Week: Gary and Xenia Kemp (EagleDadandXenia)
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 Gary and Xenia Kemp (EagleDadandXenia).
Who are you?
We are EagleDadandXenia. Gary (Eagle Dad) and Xenia (Xenia). I am an Eagle Scout and a Father of an Eagle Scout, hence the name. Xenia is well, Xenia. Gary’s MUCH better half. We are members of the Munzee Meatballs Clan.
Where in the world do you live?
A small town called Dade City, Florida, USA. It is located just Northeast of Tampa.
How long have you played Munzee?
We have been playing since July 22, 2013.
How did you find Munzee?
We were pretty active in another geolocation game (#coexist) and two of our good friends, Ron and Carol (OBC & SLP), started playing Munzee. We would talk about it and I thought ‘sounds like fun but not sure I want “another” hobby’. One weekend we were in Orlando coexisting and met them for Dinner. They invited us to join them while they Munzeed. That was all it took. We have trade items for the other game printed with our name and the question, “Hobby or Addiction?” It certainly is a valid question for our Munzee activity now. Thank you, Ron and Carol for not giving up on us.
What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
We enjoy the thrill of the hunt and have become avid Badge collectors. Far and away, the best part of Munzee is the lifelong friends we have made since we became active. We have made some special friends from all over the globe to share our addiction with. We love that Munzee actively participates in the support of the various charities. We hope that trend continues.
What is on your wish list?
Expand some of the Badge lines, maybe an intermediate Rover Badge to span between 1k and 5k and a 250k Day badge.
Tell us about yourself!
We retired 2 years ago. Gary was an I/T Project Manager and Xenia worked in the Supervisor of Elections office. We have 2 grown children and 3 grandchildren. In addition, we are newly minted GREAT Grandparents.
Other hobbies include:
We enjoy 1800’s living history and we volunteer with a Hot Air Balloon Crew out of Tampa. Eclectic? Yes……
Any last words?
We are honored and flattered to be nominated for this recognition. Thank you to those that had a hand in this nomination. MUNZEE ON!!!!
