    Default Garmin Geocoin Challenge - Free Geocoins!

    Just in case anyone hasn't seen the posting on the GC forums, Garmin are currently giving away (yes - free!) a 'hoard' of limited-edition geocoins across the UK in Blacks and Millets stores.

    Here's a website all about it:-

    http://garminuk.geocaching.com/

    The 'Participating Stores' list can be ignored. Mrs BHH popped into our local Blacks today (not listed), and they confirmed that they'll be receiving a box of coins sometime next week.

    There's also a prize draw linked to the coins. :socool:

    Oxford are all out! Dunno if they're getting anymore. They received a packet of 18 and started dishing them out yesterday. Glad I ran for it this morning, rather nice coin there

    After reading the thread on gc.com, I made a slight detour to Telford (on my way to Wales) and picked up a coin.

    I have now registered it and plan to drop it off at a cache in North Staffordshire on Sunday.

    I have been lucky enough to receive a coin today via a friend who managed to get 3
    I think the wording on the site has changed as I never noticed this sentance before

    "Please note that all Blacks and Millets Stores will soon be participating in this promotion. Please check back for updates."

    It looks to me as if another batch of stores will be chosen when they release the next design which would help those that don't live near any of the currant ones

    Fingers crossed folks

    The main forums are reporting that all have been released. Pics
    If there was a competition for witty signatures, I'd come last.
