Love it, Pharmgirl!! The pharmacists are taking over this thread! Where are Chevyole and Scriptrhythm?

I brainstormed this one on my commute home yesterday. One last submission from me. In my head it was supposed to be a circular coin, but my photoshop skillz are lacking in the circle dept. That is supposed to be the WI State Tree on the front, sort of. Very Happy

During this years Chili and Bonfire event I had a short little conversation with Aunti Nae about name tags and she said cachers want name tags and will sign up just to get them and the WGA will get emailed about how to acquire them also.
So this put a thought in my head.....
There are those name tags that are trackable and you can right your name in them (you see them all the time at events)
So I thought maybe a WGA name tag trackable.
you can use the preexisting WGA name tag template but just make a spot on it so we can write our caching name on it.
This way people will come up to you and want to discover your name tag and then that will lead into a conversation.
Zuma you can even do a Z challenge called -Meet your fellow WGA'ers- you must discover 10 WGA cachers to claim this cache.

Ok, I'm not an artist - I have the tools but lack the skills, I'll stick my neck out there anyway. Here's my idea for the coin.

The colors don't seem to come across right and I don't know how to curve the letters in the program I used so take that into consideration please.

Coin in the shape of 10(as best as possible of course)

Front: Original logo in the center of the zero, names of the cachers who signed up on the first day of the wga exsistence circling the logo

Back: New logo colors in center, 10 years later.. and Wisconsin Geo. Assoc circling it, web address and gc number on the one (maybe swap spots for easier reading)

Here is my stab at it. I was thinking we've already had WI shaped, round and cow, so how about rectangle? I grabbed graphics from previous coins, so these can/should be tweaked to be unique for this year...

Okay, I apologize in advance. I have zero artistic ability... I would need somebody to help me out with a better computerized version. But here is my idea anyway... A GPSr-shaped coin with our Wisconsin logo as the screen.

Wow, that is amazing sandlanders! Now I'm embarrassed about what you are about to see, but here goes anyway! I was just about to climb in to bed (gotta get up at 0500 tomorrow, ack), when out of town Schnapps sent me a text with his idea. Gotta hit the hay ASAP, so whipped out a quick crayon drawing - please forgive the crudeness of the sketch! Cool Nighty night.

Chz (literally, this time)
