On a related note, I have some MGS / CAM pins (buttons).

Can anyone confirm if forgetting / missing any that have been made / distributed by MGS?

Maryland Geocaching Society - white background with flag / hiker logo (1")
got cam? - White on Black (1.5")
CAM 2010 - Are You Ready? (1.5")
CAM 2010 - CAM On! (1.5")
CAM 2010 - Survivor (1.5")
CAM 2012 - Jeep logo (1.5")
CAM 2012 - Jeep logo (1")

Since I don't wear them normally, they've just been sitting around, but I've collected them up and they're now on my exterior cubical wall for all to see, along with some other caching pins.

All MGS pathtags and passwords to buy the pathtags are posted here: viewtopic.php?f=77&t=6622&start=140

It does look like the oriole tag has sold out.

At GW13 I purchased a 2006 Black Eyed Susan Geocoin with a map of Maryland on the reverse. Does anyone have any information on the backstory of this geocoin? Was it an MGS production? I'll add it here if it is. It looks to have been a substantial production run as it has a serial number of 426. Some research shows that TomBearr (who can really belt out the National Anthem, btw) designed it.

Mark told me that TomBearr was one of the first geocachers in Maryland to create their own geocoin. I do not believe this was an MGS coin.

Are the pathtags that were for sale at GeoWoodstock on Saturday available anywhere online? I wanted two sets of the season tags, but ran out of cash by the time I saw them.

Thanks

Hi 2angrybeaners,

Yes, we do still have the four seasons pathtag sets available. We will probably sell them at our summer picnic on August 9 at Rocks State Park.

The Maryland Black Eyed Susan geocoin is tombear's personal coin minted in 2006. He brought some to GeoWoodstock and we put some of them up for sale. We have 6 left which we will bring to the summer picnic.
