The MEGA Event was really M E G A ! When we spoke about the event in advance, we couldn't imagine it as beautiful as it was. In our view, it could not have gone better. The weather was right, the mood was jovial, friendly and cheerful, the shows at night rocked the stage and all the great helpers (and the countless volunteers who tackled) were worth gold!
We only can say thank you. The two years of preparation and countless hours of work in our spare time have paid for these three days. The motto meeting friends became a reality.
Thank you also to all the sponsors and those who supported us in the background.
We hope that you took with you a lot of beautiful memories and that you have enjoyed our motto meeting friends like us. Have fun with the pictures in our gallery, which geocacher sb4e took for you! Happy caching!
Yours sincerely, stettfurter, löwe_fridolin, ui, luagsh, 6-Pack, Ionpaint, AlpineRooster, salsafrösch and Mostindianer

For almost one year our coins are into circulation, which we sent into the world to promote our "MEGA Switzerland - meeting friends 2014" event.
Many positive log entries have reached us. Only about 5% could not get used to the idea. The following log we like especially (translated from German):
"I think it is a kind of stupid that several coins are in circulation since the description says that someone else would have it although I have the coin. Well, in any case, now I know where to go on holidays this year."
The coin has served its purpose, hasn't it? For all others who did not find this a great idea, we apologize for that. Well, the coin has a new task from now on:
Everyone who comes to the MEGA Switzerland event in Frauenfeld on Friday 9th May 2014 or Saturday, 10th May 2014 and finds such a coin in the next few weeks should bring it to the event. Take a piece of paper, write your name and stick it into the coin envelope. Then throw the coin with your name in the box "competition" at the OC office on the event site.
On Friday night during the opening show and on Saturday night at the break of the Dosenfischer concert we will pick out some coins and distribute a few prizes. Among other possibilities you perhaps win a collector's set of the official MEGA Switzerland coins, consisting of 5 pieces!
We would be delighted if all coins find their way back to Frauenfeld.
About two years ago it began with a simple idea: A MEGA event in Frauenfeld. After countless hours of preparation and meetings the event starts on Friday 9th May 2014 at 8 o'clock p.m. with a two-hour show. The arrival of the pilgrims as well as music, dance and a surprise guest hopefully spark an explosion of joy. Be there when they say: The show begins!
You'll find the listing here: GC4XTK2. Hurry up and log will attend!
