California Bear Coin

Electricians Welfare Committee, Unit 4

Regular price $20.00

In 2017 we had this artwork made for what would have been the first ever Local 11 Challenge Coin, but at the time we decided against making a coin.  And it wasn’t until 2020 that we finally decided to make a challenge coin, since then we have made 9 different coins.  So since we still had the artwork we decided it would be cool to use this for our 10th coin. 

Limit of 5 per member.  


The District 4 Welfare Committee is made up entirely of volunteers, who come in after work. As a result, it may take a few days after you order for us to package and ship your items. Thank you for your patience.

 

Challenge Coin Rules 

1. Rules of the coin game must be given or explained to all new coin holders.

2 The coin MUST be carried at all times. You can be challenged for it anywhere, any time. You must produce the coin without taking more than 1 step or an arm's length to produce it.

3. When challenging, the challenger must state whether it is for a single drink or a round of drinks.

4. Failure to produce a coin, for whatever reason, results in a
bought round or single drink (whatever the challenger
stated). This type of transaction could be expensive, so hold onto your coin. Once the offender (coinless challenger) has bought the drink or round, they can't be challenged again.

5. If all the challenged produce their coins, the challenger loses and must buy the drinks for all respondents. This too can be expensive, so challenge wisely.

6. Under no circumstances can a coin be handed to another in response to a challenge if a person gives their coin to another, that person can keep the coin -- it's theirs!!! However, if a person places the coin down and another person picks it up to examine it that is not considered giving, and the examiner are honour-bound to place the coin back. The examiner can't challenge while they hold another Members coin. After negotiating a ''reasonable" ransom", the examiner must return the, Member's coin.

7. If a coin is lost, replacement is up to the individual. A new coin should be acquired at the earliest opportunity -- losing a coin and not replacing it doesn't relieve a Member of his/her responsibilities. This is especially true if your fellow Members know that you traditionally carry a coin.

8. The coin should be controlled at all times. Giving a coin to just anyone is like opening a fraternity to just anyone. It is an honour to be given a coin, let's keep it that way. A given or awarded coin is of more personal value than a purchased coin.

9. No holes may be drilled in a coin.

10. The above rules apply to anyone who is worthy to be given/awarded a coin, has a purchased coin, or who is known to be a previous coin holder.
