July 2022 GOTM Winners
The month began with the first day of special deliveries from the UnBirthday Mailbox! As you know, Wonder11and residents come and go as they please, so they’ve arrived at different points throughout the month: the first week saw the March Hare Garden Flamingo, the CH3SHiRE Cat Mech, and the R053 Mech.
We are now happy to announce the winners of the July Gardens of the Month (GOTM)! The badges will be awarded by early August, but we couldn’t wait to share the winners we’ve chosen!
This month, we’ve chosen gardens that were the centerpieces of some festive Munzee Events! Remember that all winning GOTM organizers and all players who deployed in the winning gardens will be awarded special badges for their contribution to growing the map. This month we’re happy to award the XI birthday Mad Hatter garden, designed by geomatrix, and the Corgi Garden, designed by CoalCracker7, as our winning July GOTM! The gardens appear as follows:
XI birthday Mad Hatter by geomatrix in Richfield, MN
Here’s a note from the player who designed this garden:
The team was instantly drawn to this garden as it fits the theme of this month so perfectly! Don’t confuse it with a regular old Leprechaun — as the designer noted, it’s actually from the UnBirthday Event Attendee Badge, which features Rob as the Mad Hatter! Below you can see how their event badge and icons turned out:
Corgi Garden by CoalCracker7 in Lakeland, FL
Here are some of the notes from the players who nominated this garden:
The Garden was created to coincide with the National Corgi Day event we held on 4 June 2022 in Lakeland. It was appropriate, as 4 June was International Corgi Day and CoalCracker7‘s Birthday. She had a Corgi named Socks that the Garden resembles. In addition, everyone that scanned the event badge was awarded a free Flat Murray. The event was also featured on the Munzee Calendar Page and it was also Flat Murray Scatter Weekend!
This garden was created for an event on International Corgi Day. CC7 worked hard to get this filled quickly for the event she had on Corgi Day. She loves Munzee and the Munzee Community and works tirelessly to keep it interesting for the people around her.
You know we love animals here at MHQ, so this cute Corgi garden was a shoo-in to win! We were also touched to read all the heartwarming notes from the nominators — it sounds like they had a great time at the event, and it’s clear that CoalCracker7 is much loved by her fellow players.
All players who deployed in the respective winning gardens will receive the following special badges:
