Event Spotlight: happy birthday to Munzee, Workum- the Netherlands

While Munzee can certainly be a solo game if you choose, there’s no denying the appeal in meeting others who share your interests. Munzee Events are perhaps the best example of this, as they allow you to meet both old and new players in a safe, friendly environment. On top of that, there are usually activities, games, and — if you’re lucky — goodie bags! That being said, planning events requires a considerable amount of effort. So, to make it easier for prospective hosts (and maybe even recurring hosts), we decided to put the spotlight on past events, Munzee-Toolkit style! We hope this series of posts will inspire you to try hosting an event if you never have before, or provide you with ideas to spice up future events if you’re an old hand at it!

Today we’re featuring the happy birthday to munzee, Workum- the Netherlands event, which took place on July 1, 2015 at Workum, The Netherlands and was hosted by bordentaxi, feikjen, and felixbongers.

Give us a brief summary about your event!

We planned a Munzee’s 4th birthday event on the 1st of July 2015.

We were a little bit nervous because it was only the second event we had organized.

Event 101 started off to be one of many.

The event location we used was our restaurant, so it was easy for us to receive guests and take care of them. We’re a family of three. Feikjen (my wife) Felix (our son) and myself, Maarten.

Like I said, it was just another event until Louise wrote us an e-mail, saying Rob was going to join our party. He was even going to arrive the evening before, so we had to re-organize the whole thing. Finally, we made it into two events. On the night before (hang out with the “guys” event) we all had dinner on the balcony of our restaurant. Then the main event on the 1st of July. A lot of people stayed overnight, so we organized a common breakfast. After that, a wooden ship with historical value picked us all up, we passed through the lock and after a little tour we ended in our restaurant for coffee, tea & pie, munzee and laughter.

What tips do you have when hosting an awesome event?

Find a nice location. We think it’s handy to pick a spot with a place around where you can get a coffee, stay dry in case of rain and to get warm again if necessary. Then get a Badge and a special capture and set out a nice walk.

What made your event unique?

Definitely the presence of Rob. It was really great fun meeting the person behind coachV and talking to him. What a privilege. Mind you, organizing an event is always fun. You meet fellow players and we have lots of fun.

Would you like to highlight any future events you’re hosting?

You can’t have a birthday without a party, so we organized a 9th birthday event.

https://calendar.munzee.com/event1591535642/

No matter what, we have to be extra creative this time because of the corona restrictions.

We’ve organized 27 events until now, in Holland and abroad, we’ll manage this one as well.

Thank you to bordentaxi for being such a great host and submitting the details for this event! We will be reaching out to other past event hosts in the future, so keep an eye on your inbox!

These World Sushi Day Specials Are A Feast for the Eyes!

World Sushi Day specials are now live on the map for everyone and will remain available until July 8 at 23:59 MHQ. You can use the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters to more easily view them on the map. There are quite a few different specials, so check out a breakdown of each below!

Sushi Ingredients

There will be 658 Sushi Ingredient Specials available for capture on the map — that breaks down to 80 of each type except for Puffer Fish, of which there are only 18. These are attracted to either Physical or Virtual Magnets depending on their type. None of these specials are blastable.

Landing Pads:

Bounce Times:

  • Rice: every hour
  • Nori: every 2 hours
  • Cucumber: every 3 hours
  • Fried Egg: every 4 hours
  • Prawn: every 5 hours
  • Salmon: every 6 hours
  • Roe: every 7 hours
  • Tuna: every 8 hours
  • Puffer Fish: every 9 hours

Points:

  • Capture: 80
  • CapOn: 18

Sushi Badges

There are two lines of badges related to Sushi Ingredient specials.

The first line is based on overall Sushi Ingredient captures. These badges will give you all of the tools you need for preparing sushi! The first badge in this line is a Rolling Mat earned by capping one Ingredient of any type!

The second line of badges is based on capping different combinations of Sushi Ingredient specials. Make sure to cap at least one of each special so you can try each type of roll!

You can sneak a peek at the first of each badge line (and the answer to our social post) below:

Sushi Masters

In addition to the Sushi Ingredients there will also be three rare Sushi Master Specials bouncing around the map! There will be a total of 18 Sushi Master Specials available for capture — that breaks down to 6 of each type. More Sushi Masters may emerge if they pass inspection throughout this celebration! These are attracted to both Physical or Virtual Magnets on their respective landing pads. These are officially tPOBs on the Munzee account and are not blastable.

Landing Pads:

Bounce Times:

  • every 6 hours

Points:

  • Capture: 200
  • CapOn: 50

There will also be a unique badge for capturing each type of Sushi Master so be sure you track down at least one of each! How else will you reserve a table at their five star sushi restaurants?

We hope you’re able to cook up some fun with these delicious dining options! If you love this artwork, look for it and so much more on our sister app, WallaBee!

Munzee on!

NEW Evolutions Extend Our Aquatic Wildlife Collection!

We’ve been missing beautiful beach views, the sound of the waves, and glimpses of aquatic wildlife. While we may not be able to do anything in Munzee about the first two, we thought that it’s about time to add some new Evolution Munzees to our roster! Starting June 1 at 00:01 MHQ time, our brand new Turtle and Jellyfish Evolutions will be made available through the June MunzPak Subscriptions!

These NEW Evolution Munzees will be available in their corresponding MunzPak Subscriptions, sold in the Freeze Tag Online Store. However, keep in mind that if any MunzPak orders are placed before June 1 at 00:01 MHQ time, players will be receiving the May MunzPak. Both the Turtle and Jellyfish Evolutions are a combination of Physicals and Virtuals.


Turtle Evolution Munzees

Stages 1-4 of the Turtle Evos are Physical Munzees, while Stage 5 Turtles will bounce to both physical and virtual landing pads.

The 5 stages of the Turtle Evolution are as follows:

  • Stage 1: Turtle Egg
  • Stage 2: Turtle Hatchling
  • Stage 3: Juvenile Turtle
  • Stage 4: Adult Turtle
  • Stage 5: Turtle (3 Variants)
    • Sea Turtle
    • Snapping Turtle
    • Taekwondo Tortoise- RARE VARIANT!

Jellyfish Evolution Munzees

Stages 1-4 of the Jellyfish Evos are Virtual Munzees, while Stage 5 Jellyfish will bounce to both physical and virtual landing pads.

The 5 stages of the Jellyfish Evolution are as follows:

  • Stage 1: Jellyfish Planula Larva
  • Stage 2: Jellyfish Polyp
  • Stage 3: Jellyfish Bulbed Polyp
  • Stage 4: Jellyfish Ephyra Larva
  • Stage 5: Jellyfish (3 Variants)
    • Box Jellyfish
    • Golden Jellyfish
    • PB & Jellyfish- RARE VARIANT

Evolution Timeline

The stage timeline of the Turtle and Jellyfish Evolutions will match that of the Butterfly Evolution. The stages will be as follows:

  • Stage 1 to Stage 2: after 4 days
  • Stage 2 to Stage 3: after 14 days
  • Stage 3 to Stage 4: after 10 days
  • Stage 4 to Stage 5: permanent until reset to stage one

Once these Evolutions reach Stage 4, a temporary POB will be launched. For example, if you’ve deployed a Turtle Evolution, the Juvenile Turtle will remain in place, while the adult Turtle variant will be launched at the same time for the duration of its “lifespan.” Likewise, if you’ve deployed a Jellyfish Evolution, the Jellyfish Bulbed Polyp will remain in place, while the Jellyfish variant will be launched at the same time for the duration of its “lifespan.”

Once these Evolutions reach Stage 5, they will stay in place for 8 hours or when captured, and will not be able to be nudged. Once 10 captures or 42 days have elapsed for Stage 5, the Turtle or Jellyfish will be archived.

The first four stages of the Turtle and Jellyfish Evolutions will be the same for all players. However, Stage 5 will have the option of emerging as one of the three different species listed above. Like the Flower Evolutions, the chance of the Turtle or Jellyfish Evolution evolving to one of the 3 types changes every time it is reset with the Evolution Reset Credit.

Using an evolution reset credit will set your Evolution back to Stage 1, for a chance for the Turtle or Jellyfish to evolve to a different species at Stage 5. Although you cannot capture a reset evolution if you have already captured the original from stages 1-4, you CAN capture the final level of a reset when it evolves and releases a new tPOB. An easy way to know is, if you see it on the map you can capture it!

Please note that although the first four stages for each are the same, they will count as different special capture icons. Like all Player Owned Bouncers (POBs), the Turtle and Jellyfish Evolutions will be available for multi-capture only as the Level 5 Turtle or Level 5 Jellyfish, respectively.


Points and Landing Pads

The points for the Turtle and Jellyfish Evolutions will be as same as the Butterfly Evolution, with 100 points awarded per Stage 1 deploy.

  • Stage 1: Cap: 50, CapOn: 30
  • Stage 2: Cap: 40, CapOn: 20
  • Stage 3: Cap: 45, CapOn: 25
  • Stage 4: Cap: 40, CapOn: 30
  • Stage 5: Cap: 150, CapOn: 50, Host CapOn: 50

Just like real life turtles and jellyfish, the Turtle and Jellyfish Evolution Munzees sometimes swim to dangerous areas including predator filled waters, and high-speed roadways! Bouncing Turtle and Jellyfish Evos will be attracted to the following landing pads:

The Turtle and Jellyfish Evolutions will adhere to normal proximity rules. Stage 1 deploys must be at least 50 feet from any other physical type and 150 feet from your own physical munzees. Stages 1-4 are blastable.

Stage 5 of the Turtle and Jellyfish Evos will be attracted to Munzee Magnets and Virtual Magnets. They are NOT blastable. To access the Turtle and Jellyfish Evolution Munzees, turn on your “Evolution” and “All Expiring Specials” filters. The Turtle and Jellyfish Evolutions will count toward Evolution Capture and Deploy badges.

The full contents of the June MuzPak Subscriptions will be revealed on Monday. We hope this latest Evolution has you ready to dive into summer (in the northern hemisphere) in the meantime!

Munzee on!

*Green Colored Virtuals include: 

  • VIRTUAL SEA GREEN MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL GRANNY SMITH APPLE MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL GREEN MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL FOREST GREEN MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL ASPARAGUS MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL OLIVE GREEN MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL YELLOW GREEN MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL GREEN YELLOW MUNZEES
  • VIRTUAL SPRING GREEN MUNZEES

Celebrate the Heroes of Today With These Soaring Specials!

With both National Teacher’s Day AND National Nurse’s Day falling on the first week of May (not to mention Mother’s Day the week after!) we thought it would be a great idea to have our next specials honor essential workers! Their work makes it possible for many of us to function while staying safe at home, putting themselves at risk. Since “essential worker” sounds a bit bland, we decided to call them Hometown Heroes instead!

The first of our Hometown Heroes specials have just launched, at 12:00 MHQ time on May 18. The first icon is the one on the far left, Stay Safe. The quantities of masks will increase at random times, once launched, until they leave the map at 23:59 MHQ time on June 7! The hero masks will bounce every 6 hours or when capped. The heroes themselves will bounce around every 4 hours or when capped. The Stay Safe icon will bounce every 2 hours or when capped.

Each of the 5 mask icons correspond to a different hero! Will you be able to collect them all?

Points

  • Capture: 200 points for each mask, 150 points for the Stay Safe icon, 100 points for each hero.
  • CapOn: 50 points for ALL Hometown Hero bouncers

The heroes will bounce to all virtual colors. The mask icons will bounce to amethyst, sapphire, air mystery, citrine, onyx, electric mystery, and Skyland. The Stay Safe icon will only bounce to the white virtual.
ALL Hometown Hero specials will be attracted to Virtual Magnets, available from the Freeze Tag Online Store.
You can access the Hometown Hero specials under the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Specials” filters.
These virtual specials are not blastable.

Badges

There is also a line featuring 5 new badges to earn by capturing some of the different types of specials. They are not all available at the time of launch but will be added throughout the first week. We’re revealing one of these badges below:

The Super Stamper!- Capture at least one Delivery Mask special.

Can you collect all 5 badges? Cap as many of these specials as you can to set yourself up for success!

Munzee on!

World Laughter Day Specials — Because We All Need a Good Laugh Right Now!

We’re pretty sure most people have a bad case of cabin fever, so what better way to take your mind off of it than with some humor? World Laughter Day specials are out NOW, featuring jokes that have passed our staff’s (somewhat low) standards! (Note: Freeze Tag is not liable for any head injuries sustained after reading a corny World Laughter Day joke 😉.)

Our World Laughter Day specials will launch at 10:00 MHQ time on May 1, with 503 hitting the map until 23:59 MHQ time on May 17! Though there will only be one icon shown on the map, there are a possibility of 10 different icons that will not be visible until captured, similar to how the Greeting Cards work. Also similar to our Magic 8 Ball special last year! They will bounce around every 303 minutes or when capped.

Each of the 10 icons will correspond to a different joke! Will you be able to collect them all?

Points

  • Capture: 53 points
  • CapOn: 35 points

These Virtual Munzees will not be blastable. They will bounce to all virtual colors and be attracted to Virtual Magnets, available from the Freeze Tag Online Store. You can access the World Laughter Day specials under the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Specials” filters.

Badges

There is also a line featuring 5 new badges to earn based off captures of World Laughter Day specials. The first badge in the series appears as follows:

Cheesy Chuckle- Capture 1 Joke Special of any type

One special badge can only be obtained on World Laughter Day (May 3) which you can see below:

Dose of Laughter- Capture at least one Joke Special of any type on World Laughter Day- May 3rd, 2020 (MHQ time zone).

It’s up to you to figure out the requirements for the remaining 3 badges! Cap as many of these specials as you can to set yourself up for success!

Munzee on!

Event Spotlight: Covid-19 Påske Special

While Munzee can certainly be a solo game if you choose, there’s no denying the appeal in meeting others who share your interests. Munzee Events are perhaps the best example of this, as they allow you to meet both old and new players in a safe, friendly environment. On top of that, there are usually activities, games, and — if you’re lucky — goodie bags! That being said, planning events requires a considerable amount of effort. So, to make it easier for prospective hosts (and maybe even recurring hosts), we decided to put the spotlight on past events, Munzee-Toolkit style! We hope this series of posts will inspire you to try hosting an event if you never have before, or provide you with ideas to spice up future events if you’re an old hand at it!

Today we’re featuring the Covid-19 Påske Special event, which took place on April 6, 2020 at Hobro, Denmark and was hosted by Primdahl, KalashniKitty, RosendalKFUM, XH558.

Give us a brief summary about your event!

I am a lucky Munzee Player – but we will return to that.

Louise asked if I wanted to tell about my last event “Covid-19 Easter Special” (https://www.munzee.com/m/event1585935939), because I actually managed to carry out an event despite the shutdown and quarantine.

My first thought was that no one would be bothered to hear about The Dullest Event in the World, and that I probably just would get banned since that is not the idea of events at all, but hopefully I can help inspire some of you to try something similar.

In Denmark it is forbidden to gather more than 10 people so far, and you have to keep 2 meters away from others in the public space, but since events first are automatically archived after one week, there is ample opportunity to scan munzees separately, at different times.

Let’s start with the practical execution. It has become very easy to create an event today and Spring/Easter Events were no exception. I chose the package without distance restrictions and with 20 virtual munzees ( they do not infect 😉 ). The virtual munzees were placed so that they could all be reached from the parking lot in case of bad weather and the QR codes for the Event Pin and Event Badge were placed in the window of the local Scout House so they could be scanned from the outside.

I usually organize an event in Hobro every month, so in the Event Description and in one of the Danish Munzee Facebook Groups I wrote that the event would be carried out, but under other conditions than we usually do. That the participants could come in pairs and scan the Event Munzees and take a walk in the area where many of you are really good at deploying Temporary Virtuals (thank you very much) and that if you should happen to meet other players at the same time, you had to follow common sense and the instructions of the authorities to limit the risk of infection.

Eskiss – Covid-19 Påske Special

There was also the opportunity to take part in the competition for the most “springy” outfit, by taking a selfie with the Scout House in the background and emailing the picture to me.

There were more than 60 players participating in the event over Easter – and now I return to why I consider myself a lucky Munzee Player and Event Host. I am fortunate to live in an area with many active Munzee Players, some very dedicated but also many “casuals” and I am lucky because there is always great support for my events where players from many social strata and vastly different backgrounds meet in a nice community about our hobby. So, of course, the Players, my Friends, should not be cheated for an event in April — although it turned out to be The Dullest Event in the World 😉

So dear Event Hosts out there, support your local players and throw an event!

And dear Players, support your local Event Hosts and participate in their Events!

Take care of yourself and each other!

What tips do you have when hosting an awesome event?

Coffee and Cake – Spend more time socializing than Munzee’ing.

Take your time to help new players getting into the Game and having a good time.

What made your event unique?

It was carried out despite the Covid-19/Corona shutdown and quarantine.

Would you like to highlight any future events you’re hosting?

There will be an Event in the beginning of each month (or actually Clan War) in Hobro — everyone is welcome.

Don’t hesitate to ask if you need help organizing your stay.

Thank you to Primdahl for being such a great host and submitting the details for this event! We will be reaching out to other past event hosts in the future, so keep an eye on your inbox!

Munzee Mistakes: How to Munzee from Home!

Last year, we started the Munzee Mistakes series of blog posts using tips from our very helpful and knowledgeable players! As we thought we had done a good job of covering the basics, we started going into more specific territory with the last Munzee Mistakes post. This post is somewhat a return to the origins of Munzee Mistakes, as we’ll be covering the basics of munzee-ing from home. While the core of Munzee gameplay is to visit many locations to either capture or deploy munzees, there is a lot you can do without setting foot outside! Here are some tips from both players and staff that we hope you’ll find useful, quarantine or not!

We posted a call for tips from our players last Saturday, and have compiled them in the list below. Consider these tips while playing to avoid the most common Munzee mistakes! For more, you can see what everyone posted on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram! 

Tip #1: Maximize the munzees you can capture from your house!

Keep proximity requirements in mind, and deploy a variety — both physical AND virtual munzees. You need to be within a certain distance to capture a munzee, and munzees must be deployed a certain distance from other munzees to prevent crowding. Both distances vary by munzee type, but most munzees can be captured from within 300 ft. Some munzee types can be captured from a much further distance — if you don’t know which, read on as specific munzee types are recommended in later tips!

Tip #2: Virtuals are made for at-home Munzeeing!

Deploy a few near your home as well to attract bouncers (and to magnetize if you want to ensure bouncers will land), or if you are feeling social, you can trade deploys with other players! Ask friends or other members of your clan! If you don’t know anyone to ask, there are Facebook Groups made specifically for the purpose of trading virtual deploys with other players — those would be a great place to start!

Tip #3: Did you know you can deploy virtuals from the Munzee website?

This allows you to be very precise as you can enter in a latitude and longitude before deploying!

Tip #4: Deploy in a virtual garden, or create a virtual garden near you!

Don’t think that gardens have to be as large as the ones featured in our GOTM posts — small gardens are just as sweet! If you want a new garden near you but you’re not confident in creating a design, there may be another player who’ll be willing to create one for you — again, Facebook Groups are your friend! Though we heard that Dale of Space Coast Geo Store might create a cookie cutter garden for you if you ask nicely!

Tip #5: Deploy virtual munzees thoughtfully!

If gardens aren’t really your thing but you still want a way to deploy virtual munzees thoughtfully, consider high traffic locations such as airports and tourist attractions (i.e. Disneyland, Las Vegas, etc.). Another factor to consider is future events — check the Munzee Calendar and deploy a temporary virtual or a regular virtual depending on how soon the event is going to take place. Definitely check any notes the host has left to find out if the event will be rescheduled or canceled, so you don’t waste a deploy!

Tip #6: Places Munzees make especially great trades!

You can capture them within a 1,000 ft radius and you can capture them once a day!

Tip #7: Deploy Treehouses and greenies near your home!

Paired with a Physical Magnet, you’ll be able to attract all sorts of bouncers! Your mailbox can be a great spot for this, as it will still be accessible to other Munzee players (one of our rules for Physical Munzees), but will be close enough for you to get to it first most of the time! If you don’t have a mailbox, just look for the nearest street sign! If you are on good terms with your neighbors, you can also ask them for permission to stick a munzee on their mailbox / other parts of their property that are prime sticker locations.

Tip #8: Be consistent in your Munzee play!

If you are an active player, you may notice more bouncers coming your way, without even using a magnet!

Tip #9: Swap certain virtual and physical munzee types for points!

If you need deploy points for Clan Wars, this is a great way to meet that quota without having to scout around for new locations. This swapping is currently only a feature on the Munzee Website, so it’s definitely stay-at-home friendly!

Tip #10: Join the Global QRantine Event!

Munzees deployed by the event account have been “upgraded” so that they can be captured from anywhere in the world — but they function exactly the same way as other munzees of the same types! Here’s one you can capture right now!

Do you have any tips to share? E-mail us at iloveyou@munzee.com! You can also check out our past blogs about 25 master tips, 20 capping tips, 20 deploy tips, and 10 tips for new players. For more tips, be sure to check the blog daily for updates! 

A big thanks to all who shared tips, and if you’re a new player, welcome to the Munzee family! As you can see, this is an interactive community in which players help each other master the art of Munzee. We’ve also been updating the Munzee Help Manual, which will feature all of these tips and tricks as well as a comprehensive breakdown of many aspects of gameplay.

Munzee on!

Flat Day The 13th Pt 3 Specials

March seems like an innocent enough month, but sometimes when the stars align, it is capable of great evil. Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Julius Caesar taught us to “Beware the Ides of March,” but it’s got nothing on Flat Day The 13th Part 3! Starting at 13:00 MHQ on March 12th, Flat Day the 13th Part 3 specials will begin bouncing around the map until 13:00 MHQ on March 17th.

Flat Day The 13th Part 3: The Return! Details

If you want to get caught up on the storyline, here are our posts for Part 1 and Part 2. This year, 1,300 of these specials will bounce to all Flat Friends and Virtual Colors every 6 hours or when captured.

This lucky number will be worth 130 points for both the Capture and CapOn, so you don’t want to miss out! The ominous virtual MOB will be attracted to Virtual Magnets on Virtual Colors! However, they will not be blastable. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Badges

Additionally, there will be four badges to earn based on the number of Flat Day The 13th Part 3 specials you capture. But just how many captures it takes to earn all 4 badges will be kept a secret!  However, we will reveal the first badge in the line, which appears as follows:

Flat Matt claims he’s not superstitious, but opening an umbrella indoors will only cause trouble! Hopefully his luck turns around on FLAT DAY THE 13TH!

SPECIAL UPDATE: ALL Flats will be on the map for this time period! Also a special 13% off Flat Sale including Flat Matt available ONLY in the Flat Pack! Sale ends Monday!

We hope you’re ready to face these foul flat specials once again!

Munzee on!

Event Spotlight: Weston Super Munzees

While Munzee can certainly be a solo game if you choose, there’s no denying the appeal in meeting others who share your interests. Munzee Events are perhaps the best example of this, as they allow you to meet both old and new players in a safe, friendly environment. On top of that, there are usually activities, games, and — if you’re lucky — goodie bags! That being said, planning events requires a considerable amount of effort. So, to make it easier for prospective hosts (and maybe even recurring hosts), we decided to put the spotlight on past events, Munzee-Toolkit style! We hope this series of posts will inspire you to try hosting an event if you never have before, or provide you with ideas to spice up future events if you’re an old hand at it!

Today we’re featuring the Weston Super Munzees event, which took place on April 8, 2018 at The Old Colonial in Weston-Super-Mare, UK and was hosted by nuttynan, Lizeb, lankyspanky, and TheJenks7.

Give us a brief summary about your event!

I had just moved to Weston and wanted to grow the map as there were very few Munzees there. I concentrated on deploying Water, Prize Wheels and Flats clusters to encourage players to deploy and cap as well. The Flats deploys were particularly prolific as it was a double points weekend. These clusters enticed more and more players to attend. Plus I did a free prize draw for host places for all those who attended (I paid for the entire event myself). Although the Initial cost was quite a lot the subsequent deploys from players all over the world became the basis of the massive Munzee presence the Weston-Super-Mare now has.

What tips do you have when hosting an awesome event?

Build the map by doing clusters of certain types of physicals and virtuals so players can easily see what can be capped in big numbers. Also offering a prize draw for host places is always popular and brings more players to an event.

What made your event unique?

Seaside location with brand new deploys in huge clusters, so no one had capped them.

Would you like to highlight any future events you’re hosting?

https://calendar.munzee.com/event1578954942/

We are celebrating Weston’s links with helicopters history and chasing little helicopters around the streets beside the famous Helicopter Museum (NOT on the museum grounds or airfield).

There are huge numbers of Airs and Joysticks (with the resulting number of scatter types to chase after as well). We welcome any type of deploys in and around the event venue and the obvious “loops” which indicate where the event icons may be deployed. https://www.munzee.com/map/gcjuj4xqj/15.5

Thank you to nuttynan for being such a great host and submitting the details for this event! We will be reaching out to other past event hosts in the future, so keep an eye on your inbox!
