Team Munzee were at it again, tempting us players to get out and about after the Christmas and New Year festivities, with a Munzee Double Points Weekend, starting on Friday January 13, 01:00hrs CST to Sunday January 15, 00:00hrs CST, but this was extended to Monday January 16, 0:00hrs CST, due to server 'hiccups'.
My captures in total for the weekend were 188, these were from Sutton Park, Merrion's Wood, Dartmouth Park, the Silver & Trees series and Warrens Hall Nature Reserve, which included a pumpkin.
Points scored: 2084 (me)
Ranking At Start: 34
Ranking At End: 34 (Oh well, I did try!)
Total Captures Worldwide: 23,300+
Total Deployed: 7,300+
=Ako- and myself, slowly wandered around, watching everyone searching and attempting to capture the Munzee and subtly pointing people in the right direction. It was such a relief, after many weeks of organisation, to just watch everyone enjoy capturing.
From outside to inside, everyone then met at the Royal Oak, Rowley Regis, after to participate in more fun and games.
My thanks go to -Ako- and Northking for their very hard work and help in getting this event off the ground, and thank you to all those who attended, it was fantastic to meet new and old friends.
After many weeks of preparation of the First UK Munzee Meet, the day started, in the car park to Warrens Hall Nature Reserve, with a race at 10:30hrs. There were approximately 18 pumpkins, left from the Halloween event, for players to try and grab as many as possible, as they were each worth 50 points!
Off out tonight to finish off deploying for the First UK Munzee Meet 2011, which is tomorrow. Walked up to the top of Turners Hill then down to Warrens Hall Nature Reserve, finally got home to sleep around 03:30hrs!
Met up with -Ako- after work and walked around another section of the Nature Reserve to deploy more Munzee for the First UK Meet next weekend. Have found a couple of nice little hides, some difficult ones mixed in with some easy captures.
Both of us will be out again tomorrow to find some more great places to hide the Munzee.
Spent a couple of hours with Dave (-Ako-) on Sunday morning walking around Warrens Hall Nature Reserve, finding places to deploy. The sun was shining and the views around the valley were stunning, hopefully the weather will be good on the day of the meet. We still have a few areas to cover and place the Munzee, and hope to get this done next weekend.
Earlier this week we received confirmation from Munzee HQ that they are supporting us and will be sending some goodies for the meet.
Hope to see you there!
