O’zapft is at FLAGSTACK!

Griass God und Servus beinand!

We know you won’t find a translator for Bavarian to English - so let’s say it again: Hello! :-)

Only a few days left and it is back again… The largest folk festival in the world will probably attract more than six million visitors to the Theresienwiese in the Bavarian capital Munich again this year. You like the Wiesn but can't travel to Munich? Then FLAGSTACK is the right place for you...

From 22.September (0:00 am) to 07.October 2018 (11:59 pm, time zone Europe/Berlin) we will celebrate FLAGSTACK's first (and 185th official) Oktoberfest with you!

What we are offering to you? At least as much fun, beer mugs and gingerbread hearts! You'll find the beer mugs and gingerbread hearts on the FLAGSTACK map, and you'll get the fun by collecting these treats. If you collect at least 54 of these specialties in the above mentioned period, you’ll receive a smart badge as a reward!

That sounds like a lot of work? Then be happy about this small solution what hides behind the beer mugs and gingerbread hearts:

You can find the beer mugs at Eternal Flags - a so-called beer flat rate for the Oktoberfest! Well, where do you find something like that... :-)

You can find the gingerbread hearts at Happy Holiday Flags - so if there aren't enough "taps" near you, you can get the sweet treat right in front of your door...

Let's go, Madls and Buam! The Oktoberfest is celebrated all over the world - be a part of this tradition and get the unique badge...

Surely you are even more interested in such special offers?! The next one will take place in October, because we're going to celebrate a scary Halloween with you!

By the way: Not only FLAGSTACK celebrates the Oktoberfest worldwide. The German Oktoberfest is also a popular event in other parts of the world. In the US city of Cincinnati in the state of Ohio, around 500,000 visitors celebrate the Oktoberfest there every year. Santa Monica celebrates the probably one and only vegan Oktoberfest, something that would be unthinkable in Munich. Probably the world's smallest Oktoberfest takes place at the beginning of October in the Australian Outback. The village Jundah with its 100 inhabitants organizes the Oktoberfest there, traditionally in traditional costumes.

Pfueat eahna, bye bye, and a peaceful Wiesn!

Zicke-Zacke Zicken-Trail

What a great Saturday! Did you hear what happened in Gifhorn (DE)? Goats… Goats everywhere... From the Tankumsee, once around and into the city center...

The latest LAB (LocalAreaBadge) with more than 400 Oracle Flags disguised as small goats was inaugurated by over 20 FLAGSTACK herders. Freckless and degeisi, with the friendly support of many other FLAGSTACKERS, have created a MEGA Oracle Trail in the middle of a wonderful landscape. We could convince ourselves of the quality in person with many other crazy people: Perfect flag positions, perfect mobile phone reception with various providers, perfect parking possibilities at start and finish, perfect environment with great landscape. Well-equipped we passed sandy beaches, hiking trails, the famous triple oak and a short detour on trails past beaver constructions. So much variety can be seen while pursuing your favorite hobby - FLAGSTACK :)

This LAB is recommended and can be done all year round! You are welcome to visit it!

And we never run out of crazy ideas... Plan a short trip in the vicinity of the FHQ on 27 October 2018 - the PRE-HALLOWEEN EVENT awaits you https://www.flagstack.net/event/1635. You just shouldn't be afraid... He-heh-heh......

Have a good start into the new week!

Come to the Gifhorn goat trail too

Next weekend you'll be busy shopping, cleaning the house, preparing the garden for autumn and such things...

No? Are you free Saturday afternoons? Then this is THE ULTIMATIVE RECOMMENDATION for you!

In the last weeks and months a huge Oracle Flag Trail has been created in Gifhorn and it will be inaugurated on September 1st 2018.
degeisi invites us all and has written the following text, which we will gladly pass on to you to make the event a really big thing:

-----------------------

„Liebe FlagHunter in Nah und Fern.
Hier noch einmal ein Aufruf an ALLE potentiellen Teilnehmer des 3. GifHorner Flagstack-Events. Angesprochen fühlen sollen sich auch die vielleicht noch Unentschlossenen oder auch die Zweifler…“nehme´ ich teil, oder nehme´ ich nicht teil“. Nicht einmal mehr eine volle Woche ist Zeit und es findet eines DER Highlights 2018 in Sachen Flagstack statt…, das 3. GifHorner-Event am Samstag 01. Sept. 2018, mit der offiziellen Einweihung des “GifHorner-ZickenTrails“.
Hier noch einmal wichtige Einzelheiten für Euch…

1. Ich hatte es bereits mitgeteilt, der Startpunkt hat sich verändert, wer es noch nicht weiß, bitte in den Eventtext schauen (https://www.flagstack.net/event/1458).

2. Hinsichtlich der zu wandernden Strecke (ca. 13,5 km)…bitte passende Kleidung und Schuhwerk anziehen, lt. Wettervorhersage werden wir optimale Voraussetzungen haben (Sonne mit leichter Bewölkung, Temperaturen bis 22°), also an ausreichende Trinkmenge denken, Sonnenbrille, Sonnenschutz, Mückenschutz, Kopfbedeckung, zwingend vorgeschrieben ist Dienstkleidung und aufgeladene Smartphones und Power Banks. Wir werden einen kleinen Teil der Strecke durch unwegsames Gelände laufen müssen, ansonsten ist die Strecke aber gut zu bewältigen. Es gibt keine Berge zwischendrin. Außerdem haben wir etwa 5 Std. Zeit. Wir werden uns nicht stressen lassen.

3. Der Zielpunkt ist das Paula´s in Gifhorn. Dort sind für uns ab 18:00h entsprechend der Teilnehmerzahl Plätze reserviert. Dazu noch speziell dieser Hinweis…Alle Speisen werden dort vor Ort frisch zubereitet, bei der Menge an Teilnehmern und ggf. individuellen Bestellungen, kann es also ein klein wenig dauern, bis das Essen auf dem Tisch steht, also bitte keine Ungeduld…

4. Ich gehe davon aus, dass wir früh genug in GF ankommen werden, sodass wir noch Zeit haben, vor der Siegerehrung und dem gemütlichen Teil, die am Startpunkt stehenden Fahrzeuge zurückzuholen. Das organisiere ich ggf. kurzfristig mit einem oder zwei Großraumtaxis. Eine Idee dazu wäre aber auch, sich vor Beginn des Events zeitlich ausreichend bei Paula´s in Gifhorn zu treffen, um Fahrgemeinschaften zum Startpunkt zu bilden. Die Entfernung mit dem Auto beträgt etwa die Hälfte des Fußweges. Zu dem Thema können wir aber auch noch kurzfristig kommunizieren.

5. Ich habe in diesem Jahr zwei unterschiedlichen regionalen Zeitschriften mitgeteilt, dass dieses Event stattfindet. Im vergangenen Jahr ist der Redakteur der “Aller Zeitung“ einen Teil der Strecke mitgelaufen, um sich Informationen zum Spiel zu notieren. Wie sich das in diesem Jahr darstellen wird, ob überhaupt, ob zu Beginn, oder zum Abschluss jemand von der Presse auftaucht, wie das mit Fotos aussieht, war mir bis zum jetzigen Zeitpunkt noch nicht bekannt. Sollte sich jemand von der Presse irgendwo einfinden, dann bitte ich um Unterstützung von Eurer Seite, genügend relevante Infos über das Spiel für die Öffentlichkeit mitzuteilen.

6. Abschließend noch ein Hinweis zu den Flaggen…Der gesamte Trail ist nun fast ausschließlich mit “Oracle Flags“ bestückt. Es handelt sich um gefühlte 1000 Stück, es sind nicht ganz so viele, aber annähernd. Es steht Euch allen frei, die Attraktivität der Strecke noch zu erhöhen, indem Ihr die ein oder andere attraktive Flagge entlang des Trails noch dazwischen streut. Aber ACHTUNG…rechts und links des Weges ist nicht allzu viel Platz. Wir bewegen uns halt durch Felder und Wiesen…
In diesem Sinne…Euch allen noch einen schönen Rest-Sonntag…
Have fun and cap the flags…
Euer “degeisi“ “

-----------------------

We think the idea and the route is so great that this is declared the official LAB (LocalAreaBadge) and of course there is a nice badge with worthwhile extra points :) Many thanks to degeisi and Freckless and to all the other flagstackers who have done their part! This great FLAGSTACK community is always doing great things!

Register for the event and come to the start on September 1st 2018 in time to spend a fun and flag-rich afternoon in the nature with many flagstackers!

See you around...
Many greetings from your
Team FLAGSTACK

Fairy-tale 18 million captures!

Once upon a time in the middle of summer, people flocked to Kassel in the German state of Hesse. There were a few little men, the King's son and Snow White highly motivated and had a really nice chat with lots of GPS game crazy people from all over the world. And as they were standing there and inspired many people to play FLAGSTACK, an unbelievable miracle happened...

Yeah - the 18 millionth capture was made...!

Yeah - now finally on a Jumper Flag...!

Here are the facts in order:

When and where?

In the morning of 04.August 2018 in Kassel (DE), the city of the famous brothers Grimm

Who and what?

Freckless (DE) was in the middle of the action and she placed with incredible luck the latest record badge on a special fairy tale jumper flag (dwarf Borghuis).

And as it should be, this 18 million record is now jumping around the world and will certainly come close to you so that you can capture this special flag and add the badge to your collection!

To celebrate this record, you will receive a discount code* for an incredible 32% rebate in our webshop at https://www.flagstack.net/shop. Take a look and treat yourself to something nice with: 18Millionen

Now it's up to you! Hardly as a record has been set, the phenomenal FLAGSTACK community has already set its sights on the next milestone... Come out, join us and with luck you will be the one at the next million!

Greetings from the FHQ

Your Team FLAGSTACK

A fairy-tale weekend with FLAGSTACK!

It was the middle of winter, and the snow-flakes were falling like feathers from the sky, and a queen sat at her window working, and her embroidery-frame was of ebony. And as she worked, gazing at times out on the snow, she pricked her finger, and there fell from it three drops of blood on the snow. And when she saw how bright and red it looked, she said to herself, "Oh that I had a child as white as snow, as red as blood, and as black as the wood of the embroidery frame!" Not very long after she had a daughter, with a skin as white as snow, lips as red as blood, and hair as black as ebony, and she was named Snow-white.

STOP! It's so hot out there...! That's a fairy tale...! Yes you’re right, because it is the announced fairytale weekend at FLAGSTACK! FLAGSTACK presents itself with an information booth at the geocaching event "GC-Grimm - Maerchenhaft in Kassel" (DE, GC6R2Y8)!

If you come to visit us on the spot, there will be a great surprise for you. Because the seven little men have already made the long way to hike over the (Kasseler) mountains and are waiting for you on the spot. The entire Saturday and Sunday (4 - 5 August 2018, 00:00 - 23:59 h, time zone Europe/ Berlin) they can be found in Kassel and also around the exhibition halls. You can't miss them on the FLAGSTACK map! Collect 50 of them to wake the event badge from its sleep!

“Looking-glass upon the wall, who has the greatest badge of us all?”

“Living in the glen with the seven little men, this badge is a thousand-times lovelier than expected!"

We keep our fingers crossed that you at least grab the Frog King or visit us in Kassel and collect the Snow White badge.

...and they played happily and contentedly FLAGSTACK...

Fairy-tale greetings to you from

FLAGSTACK is fairy-tale like...

Once upon a time in the middle of summer, the sun was shining down hot from the sky... That's how the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm started - remember?

In view of current events, we are happy to help you with fairy tales. Because....... On the first weekend in August FLAGSTACK presents its own information stand at the geocaching event "GC-Grimm - Maerchenhaft in Kassel" (DE, GC6R2Y8)!

All the things we’ve already organized... The things are packed, the seven dwarves know how and where they can help and we will get over the seven (Kasseler) mountains at the weekend. Then it will start there and we will provide a lots of fun and new FLAGSTACKERS :)

Will you come visit us there? We are looking forward to meet you! Doesn't it work out for you or is it just too far away? Then it all starts right now!

From now on the FLAGSTACK map will be like fairy tales! As if by magic, all Green Flags and Happy Holidays become beautiful fountains. And - what's missing to your happiness? Of course, the enchanted prince who jumps from one fountain to the next as a frog. Yes, you guessed right - the Jumper Flags are turning into the Frog King!

Of course there is a badge for your collection for this fantastic action. What do you have to do?

Collect 150 of these converted flags (Green Flags, Happy Holidays and Jumper Flags) until 12 August 2018 at 12:00 noon (time zone Europe/Berlin) and get the fabulously beautiful badge and 1,500 extra points!

For everyone who wants to have fun and meet us in person on site, we have prepared a little something. More information soon...!

All right so far? Then grab the Frog King, freshen up at the fountain and the badge will be yours! :)

Magic greetings from your

Team FLAGSTACK

The FLAGSTACK World Cup is over now for everyone...

Yeah, it's true... This year's FIFA World Cup went badly for many favorite teams and even the defending champions from Germany have already dropped out in the group stage. But, let's not reopen old wounds...

Because at FLAGSTACK you were unstoppable and captured soccer jumpers without getting tired - some professional soccer players can follow your example!

You know for yourself which of the many great World Cup badges you have achieved. Are you also interested in the total number? Well, look in this spreadsheet:

The FLAGSTACK WM '18 - Group stage has been reached by: 3,620 players

The FLAGSTACK WM '18 - Round of 16 has been reached by: 2,224 players

The FLAGSTACK WM '18 - Quarter-finals have been reached by: 1,236 players

The FLAGSTACK WM '18 - Semi-finals have been reached by: 975 players

The FLAGSTACK WM '18 - Finals have been reached by: 522 players

A-a-and drumroll..............

The FLAGSTACK WM '18 - Golden Goal has been reached by: 338 players

By the way - for the Golden Goal you only needed one additional soccer jumper after the final :)

As promised there's a reward for the betting players with the right instinct - we'll soon add a little something to the inventory for positions 1-10! The thrill should have been worth it :) Thanks again to Blattlaus (DE) for the great idea and organization - from FLAGSTACK players for FLASGTACK players!

So far, so good. Everyday life is returning to soccer. But of course not at FLAGSTACK!

As another birthday month special we have thought of new badges!

For the hard-working of the hard-working, we are now letting out the beast - with the Beast Mode! This 5-step series badge brings together ALL of your previous and upcoming CAPTURES and DEPLOYS! Collect a flag? One point for the badge. Lay out a flag? One point for the badge. Very simple, and simply ingenious!

Little by little we will unlock the individual badges and bring with it many points to the Flagunity! So, what percentage have you already loaded for the beast mode???

Awaken the beast in yourself and

capture the flag...
