So just to update everyone, I made it to the central library & found the boxes there. Wow! What a place! Thanks to everyone for the input.

I'll put it on calendar but I'm not sure we will be able to go that far.

Hope we can make it.
Thanks for hosting!

Tempting,
But that's the end of cookie season for us and world thinking day, so chances are slim for me to be able to travel that far then.

Bring the girls, make it a thinking day activity, if they're brownies they could work on their letterboxing badge!

They are cadettes and the brownie badge is what hooked me into this craziness. ;)

I'll see if my cadette might want to go, and have her take orders for cookies to bring if she does. She does like the events most and that's about the only way I can get her to go with me.

Hoping there will be no ice.

You could probably rebrand the event: Support the girls scouts and buy some cookies while letterboxing!!

I’ll take two boxes. Bring them that day. I certainly had to sell my share of those, once upon a time. Bring any kind, surprise me.

Planting Challenge!!!

NC vs TX Planting Challenge
The Basics:
- Challenge runs January 1, 2020 to June 30, 2020
- Open to boxers that reside in NC or TX.
- Only the owner of the box will count as the planter. No additional planters will be accepted
- Must be a permanent plant.
- May be an individual box or in a series. Each box in a series will count.
- Box counts will be verified on AQ.

Remember, this is about increasing the number of boxes in our states so that we have more quality boxes to find! Take time and care with your boxes so that the finders enjoy the challenge as well.

Plant boxes in locations you would be able to check on, are safe from muggle meddling, and will hopefully be around for quite a while. Drive by, long hike, easy clue, challenging puzzle - and all shapes and sizes of letterboxes in between - those details are up to you. You could do a series or individual boxes. The possibilities are endless!

There will be prizes for the top planters. It may be only for the first place. It may be for the top 3 overall. It may be for the top planter in each state. Does that really matter? What really matters is banding together as a state and working to beat the other team!! The top prize is the Glory of Winning!

If you are interested in participating, send an AQ message to Fantastic Mrs Fox if you are in Texas and to Sudoku Crazy if you are in North Carolina.

If you live in another state, sorry! This challenge is limited to North Carolina and Texas. However, you can let us know about your interest and maybe next time we will expand. Or, if you are really brave, you can rally the troops and challenge another state!

You mentioned Texas and North Carolina boxers and you mentioned that this is about increasing the number of boxes in our two states but do only boxes planted in those two states count?

International Plant a Letterbox Day falls on May 24, 2020 which is within the perimeters of this challenge. I recommend holding off and doing all planting on that day--two birds, one stone. That way instead of getting to beat just one measly state, you get to go against 52 (Puerto Rico, D.C. and Virgin Islands) as well as Finland.

I have never been real interested in these one-day events. I have no idea what I might be doing on May 24th or any other single day next year.

I do, however, very much like the idea of a PAL month or a PAL spring. Better yet, how about we recognise the top state (or top 3 or 5 states) each year for the number of traditional boxes planted by boxers from that state.

PI Joe, you count for Texas but your boxes wherever they may be will count for all your numbers.

We thought for a long time whether we limit to our states and decided no. I know which boxers live in texas and she knows NC. So I keep track of texas boxers participating. Your boxes planted in other states during this time counts.

I'll play, just wish I had known about it sooner so I would have waited before planting some of my recent series. How will you keep track of boxes placed, especially since I only post clues on LBNA? Will we need to notify you each time we plant?
Just curious, why NC?
