It’s hard to believe we are almost halfway through March. It’s been an exciting month so far, but there is plenty more to come. Let’s touch on a few items to start the week.
The response to the sale of Virtual and Physical Shamrocks to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy organizations has been amazing! The donations that will be made from this fundraiser will be our largest yet, and it’s all because of you. We’re proud to have such wonderful and caring players.
As a reminder, both virtual and physical shamrocks will be removed from the store on March 17th at 23:59 MHQ time. (Reminder: MHQ is now UTC -5:00 due to Daylight Savings in Texas.) Virtual Shamrocks will remain on the map through April 10th at 23:59 MHQ time. You still have plenty of time to deploy and capture them before they disappear! Physical Shamrocks will remain on the map permanently. After they are removed from the store, they will become a MunzPak and special release item only.
Louise wanted us to share some (puntastic) information regarding Easter Events:
“Don’t be a chicken, hatch some plans to attend our Easter Events running from 17th March until 10th April. That’s right, they begin this week! Check the calendar or app for the closest events to you.
Team Munzee will be getting out and about to the events too, this Saturday we have Matt in Vancouver, Louise in London and Daniel Fischer in Prague. One or more members of MHQ will be attending the events this weekend in Southlake, TX too.
Don’t forget to capture the Event Indicator pin at each event you go to, it counts towards the number of attendees for the Party Crasher badges and the Easter Events are loaded with surprises for you, some of them hidden for now….
Magic Eggs have been made available to hosts for each Easter Event. If the event has an Event Badge it will be coded to that, if not, hosts will be made aware of which Munzee it’s linked to. Each player that captures the Magic Egg gets something free. I’m not yolking, these items are very egg-citing 😉 !
We hope you will join in with the Easter Bonnet competition at each event. There is a badge and a gallery on the blog waiting for you! It’s free to enter, just wear your best Easter hat and you’re in with a chance. Hosts will decide on the winner and send me the player name and a photo after the event. We can’t wait to see you in your best Easter hat!
Stay on the sunny side up and have an egg-ceptional week! Event hosts with any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Our thanks to Louise for the great job she does managing and promoting our worldwide events. We would also like to thank our event hosts and hostesses because none of this is possible without you. Thanks for supporting our 2016 mission to grow local Munzee communities. Team Munzee is excited for what’s to come, and we hope you will be too!
Small note from Rob: Double points on greens and emeralds only will begin Thursday, March 17 @ 00:01 through Sunday, March 20 @ 23:59 🙂 This is a scavenger hunt, so of course I’ve hidden this message at the bottom. An Easter egg if you will. See you out there on the trail.
