OpenCaching North America Pathtags have arrived. Win some!

Pathtag Blueprint

After many false starts the last couple of years, the OpenCaching North America Pathtag, 1st Edition, has finally been manufactured, and is on sale now! They can be purchased in lots of 20 for $20 from TheGeocoinStore.com under a “club fundraiser” program. You’ll note the page for our tag on their website references us receiving $5 for every 20 pack sold. However, that applies only to registered non-profit LLC’s, one of which we are not (although we have, and still are considering, that legal status), so that $5 is payable only in Pathtag cash. The OCNA team will of course use this Pathtag cash to buy more of our own tags, which we will generously distribute to promote the website.

We will give you an example of that generosity right now. How about we give away 10 of them? Not to one person though, lets spread them around a little bit. We will have three separate winners. The 1st prize winner will receive 5 of our Pathtags; the 2nd prize winner will receive 3 of our Pathtags; and the 3rd prize winner will receive a paltry 2 of our Pathtags. These tags were designed by our Graphic Artist Patrick Williams, of course with plenty of design input from the OCNA team. We are very happy they have finally been produced. And hopefully, it’s the first of many Pathtags to come from OCNA. If you don’t win any, you can always buy some! Speaking of which, we have also opened the Beta OCNA Swag Store to coincide with the release of the Pathtags. You can buy Clothing and assorted accessories (buttons, water bottles, drawstring bags, etc.) right now, with more items to be added in the future.
