The shop is online!

The MEGA am MEER Shop is ready and online now!

You find the MEGA am MEER Shop HERE (available shop languages are English and German). On that website you can book MEGA am MEER event tickets, coins, shirts, and tickets for activities around the event location for a reduced price.

You can also book your accomodation (hotels, guesthouses, holiday homes) with the shop system. If you just want to order articles, scroll down and click on the article categories below the accomodation search.

The ordered articles can be picked up during the MEGA am MEER event at 19th to 21st of June 2015. Please keep your shop order confirmation and bring it along to the MEGA am MEER event.

An overview of the reduced price activities is available in this blogpost.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: The MEGA am MEER geocoins (details about the coins) can be ordered until March 15th 2015 only due to organisational reasons. On that date we have to calculate and send the final order size. Coin orders after the 15th of March will not be possible.

If you have any questions and problems regarding the shop, please write an email to shopfragen@mega-am-meer.de.

In addition, the listing for the MEGA am MEER Friday event is published: MEGA am MEER – “Moin Moin” Event (GC54BHM). Please log a “will attend” for that listing, if you participate on Friday. That makes planning much easier ;-)

We’ll keep our fingers crossed that the shop will run and work fine!

Best greetings,
the MEGA am MEER Orga-Team

After the publish of the MEGA am MEER Coin designs on Christmas, we have a New Year blast for you: The Evening Program is finalised!

There have been rumors for long, but we waited with an official statement until we know that all the financing stuff is done and we know that all works. But now official from us: On Saturday evening, the Dosenfischer will give a concert at the MEGA am MEER Event!

For all that never heard of them: The Dosenfischer are a band, that sings German songs about our favourite hobby, geocaching. 2010 they released their first album “Wir nennen es Dosenfischen” (We call it fishing cans”), in addition they play concerts in Germany and Suisse sometimes. More information about the Dosenfischer is available on www.dosenfischer.de.

We are really happy about welcoming the Dosenfischer at MEGA am MEER. Directly behind the Dyke at the center of Bremerhaven they will sing their best geocaching songs for us on Saturday, June 20th!

After much work, the MEGA am MEER orga team uses the time “between the years” to take a deep breath and regenerate for the upcoming year.

There are six months left until the MEGA am MEER Event and to sweeten your anticipation, we have a little christmas gift for you: The publication of the MEGA am MEER Geocoins:

We thank Sepp&Berta von mygeocoin.de for the beautiful and perfectly fitting aritime coin design – we can’t say which is the best ;-) We hope you like them at least as much as we do!

The coins are available from mid of January to 15th of March in the MEGA am MEER shop, due to the fact that we have to send the final order of the coins in March to receive them in time. Please consider that and place your order in the upper mentioned period to make sure to receive the coins.

Recommended caches: the city’s golden book

For a pleasant anticipation towards the MEGA am MEER event and especially all the geocaches around it, we would like to present you some remarkable caches in and around Bremerhaven on this website.

Today we would like to inform you about the traditional cache “Das goldene Buch der Stadt” (“the city’s golden book” in English), placed in the middle of the port area on a look-out, consisting of real containers. From there you have a nice view over the ports, the gantry cranes and the port operation.

In addition, the cache itself lives up to its name: it is a regular sized container with a great logbook.

Many cachers are excited,  a foretaste is found in the image gallery of the cache.

“I am there!” banner for profile and web pages

Last week, our MEGA am MEER Event-Listing was upgraded to a MEGA-Event! Therefore, we now provide the “I am there!” banner for your geocaching profile page, web page, blog,… or wherever you want to show it :-) .

Sorry for the delay, but we had to wait for the upgrade to be allowed to use the MEGA icon.

Like for our listing banners, we also provide the HTML code for you to copy it in your profile:

Small Update

Today we met our local touristic partner, Bremerhaven Tourstik, and planned further details regarding MEGA am MEER.

The date 19th – 21st June 2015 has been confirmed and fixed. Although the date is outside the local school holidays, we hope that also families with children can come to Bremerhaven. MEGA am MEER will be worth the journey, even for a short weekend trip ;-).

At the moment we are preparing the event listing, the GC code will be GC54932. Unfortunately, it is not a code like GC5MEER, but anyway, it is not about the code but about a great atmosphere at the event!

Additionally, we got the confirmation for the market and shop area. If you are interested to be at the MEGA am MEER with your shop or information booth, do not hesitate to contact us at sponsoren@mega-am-meer.de.

Of course we are also looking for anyone who wants to help us during the event. If you are interested, please write a short mail to helfer@mega-am-meer.de.

For any other requests contact info@mega-am-meer.de.

The planning goes on and we are looking forward seeing you at MEGA am MEER in Bremerhaven in June 2015.

Stay tuned!
