    Default Mega Event Calendars

    I still have a lot of Mega Event Calendars left, a lot of folks ordered calendars from me but have not paid.

    I paid the Mega Event Committee their share of the money before taking out any of my own costs, so all of the calendars that are left over are now coming out of my pocket.

    I am selling the calendars for 3.00 each this will include postage, this is just to make some of my money back.

    If you would be interested in a calendar please contact us through our profile or at my email address.

    The remaining calendars are now on ebay (see here) so feel free to grab one or two before they're all gone.

    p.s. I hope I'm allowed to say that here. I've just been banned from the Groundspeak forums for daring to mention them in an inappropriate "international" forum (Geocoins)

    They're being sold to fund an event, and we have no problem with that. I'm sorry to hear that you've been bannned from the other place for mentioning them.

    Talking Ridiculous

    Mandy, very sorry to hear that you were left with calendars on your hands. I'd have bought one on the day if I'd known, but my mangled memory told me that they had all been pre-allocated and I'd missed my chance.

    In a very real sense, GSP benefitted directly from the mega event, through strengthening of the hobby that feeds it. Indeed they were represented at the event.

    It is therefore deeply ironic that Peter should get banned for trying to help someone who had stepped up to help the event organisers financially. I suspect there may be an element of left-and-right-hands not knowing what they are doing, however the loss of goodwill from the geocaching community is palpable.

    Anyway, I've bought a calendar on eBay now and hope that the price there is high enough to cover all your costs.

    Thanks for creating the calendars and thanks to Peter for bringing this matter to our attention!

    An absolutely ridiculous state of affairs, Groudnspeak approved the calendars, their advertisement and sale through their forums so why the 'U' turn.

    More of a concern is the fact that a well known and respected community member gets a ban without a warning for an incredibly minor infringement of the rules - not that there was one anyway as the post was geocoin related.

    It beggars belief as to what is currently going on behind the scenes over there.

    Mandy its good to hear that the calendars are selling on e-bay, I'll have them up on another avenue of retail for you this afternoon - nuff said.

    There are still quite a few of the Mega Event calendars floating about

    There are 20 in the UK Geocachers shop/website
    There are 17 on Ebay

    And I still have 20 odd

    If you would like a calendar or would like more for pressies/swaps/crimbo please let one of the above resources know.

    All of the resources are selling the calendars for about half the orignal selling price, as all I want to do now is to make back the money I have already spent.

    I was never in this to make a fortune but I did expect to cover my costs

    Well I just bought one anyway, even if I don't want one or use one (I'm a digital calendar kibda guy, lol). I might find someone to give it to at Christmas time )
    Cheers,
