The Follow Me-Aircraft Marshallers challenge coins, inspired by the Commemorative Air Force-Marshallers Detachment dzus fastener challenge coin as designged by their very own Marty Huvar & incorporating our new logo, are currently in stock for members.
CHALLENGE COIN - THE THEORY: (from Wikipedia)
A challenge coin is a small coin or medallion (usually military), bearing an organization’s insignia or emblem and carried by the organization’s members. Traditionally, they are given to prove membership when challenged and to enhance morale. In addition, they are also collected by service members. In practice, challenge coins are normally presented by unit commanders in recognition of special achievement by a member of the unit. They are also exchanged in recognition of visits to an organization.
CHALLENGE COIN - THE REALITY:
1. Exchanged in recognition of visits to/by fellow organizations.
2. At any gathering (even if only two member), a member can choose to "challenge" other members by slapping down his/her coin on table/bar (best done with lots of swagger & noise)
If any "challenged" member does not present his/her coin, that member buys the next round of beer.
However, if all members present their coins then the "challenger" buys the round!
Our thanks to Tom Newey at Club Coins UK who took our concept & turned it into a reality in plenty of time for
