CHALLENGE COIN RULES

INITIATING THE COIN CHECK
Producing a unit coin, either intentionally or
unintentionally, in plain sight of other unit members constitutes a coin check.
Removing a coin from its place of storage and tapping it on a table, bar, mug,
bottle or other suitable area also constitutes a coin check. A coin resting, even if in
plain sight, does not constitute a coin check (e.g., on the nightstand in a hotel
room or in a pile of change on the coin owners cot during field conditions). Fake
coin checks are allowed. Slapping a metallic object down on the table in hopes of
getting someone to actually pull out a unit coin is allowed.

RULES OF THE COIN CHECK Once a coin check has been initiated, all coin-
carrying members (to include those of other units) must immediately produce their
coin. Coins must be on your person or within arm’s reach. If everyone within
earshot of the coin check produces a unit coin, then the coin check initiator will
purchase the beverage of choice for all coin-carrying personnel. If anyone who has
been issued a coin cannot produce said unit coin, then the said individual(s) will
purchase the beverage of choice for all coin-carrying personnel. Payment will be
immediate. IOU’s will be issued in the event a coin check occurs away from a
drinking establishment. Insufficient funds are not an excuse. Beg, borrow or find
an ATM.

DOUBLE JEOPARDY Individuals will not be liable for purchasing more than one
beverage per person per calendar day.

CARRYING THE COIN Coins will not be attached to chains, lanyards, etc., and will
not be defaced by drilling holes in them.

DISPUTES Disputes will be settled by the ranking member present. If the ranking
member present is involved in the dispute, then the next ranking member will
settle the dispute. The ranking member’s decision is final. There will be no
quibbling. If quibbling occurs, the ranking member present may waive the double
jeopardy rule, and said quibbler will purchase two beverages for each coin-
carrying member as punishment for quibbling.
