We had an absolutely perfect weather day for this years event! Many thanks to all the carvers, and a special shout out to BfloAnonChick for all the work that went in to planting a huge number of stamps and great directions. To all of you folks who haven't experienced this, come join us next year. 72 boxes this year, along with tons of existing boxes in the cemeteries!

The day was perfect. The cemeteries were interesting and filled with history. We did over half the boxes. We will return in a couple of weeks to finish. The gathering was fun as well. I met quite few new boxers, an experienced boxer and saw old friends from prior events. I am looking forward to next year's event. Thanks to all the carvers for the beautiful stamps. Thanks also to BfloAnonChick for organizing the event.

Hello everyone! At almost every LbSe annual gathering we have had a raffle and I am wanting to continue with that tradition.
So if you can donate stuff for the raffle that would be great! Please pm me with details.
Donations could include: logbooks, speedy carve, handmade anything, letterboxing supplies, carving supplies.. and they don't have to be LB related at all!
U look forward to hearing from you!

;)

I will send something. Just not sure what yet, maybe some artwork or handmade logbook. I've signed up to send a stamp, so can I send it with that?

I will donate something too. But it probably won't be anything related to letterboxing. Might have something to do with fabric and such but not sure as to what that could be. But you dear Dee won't be allowed to purchase any tickets this time.....might be a little fishey if you actually won it two years in a row! (but I am so glad you really did win it)

We know that it is short notice but would someone consider doing this stamp for us for our Christmas event which is the 16th of November. We would do it but we know that this would take alot detail and work and we aren't that good of carvers and want it to look nicer than we would do.

So if you would consider doing this for us it would be appreciated. Just send us a message.

Thanks in advance

And counting! Hard to believe it's so close!

Still looking for carves done by someone other than myself. I have had 3 other contributors, but would love some more! I can say one thing, holding this event has made me a better carver.

Going tomorrow to get the last of the clues for hidey holes. Over 40 stamps in four loops and bonus hidden clue boxes. Plus hitchhikers. Then I put together a drawing too! Hope the weather will be decent.

Only real worry is potluck sign ups. Not many have signed up and I want to make sure we have enough food.

Any suggestions or recommendations from previous event holders?

in 2011 I filled out an interview in my profile. As I review I see I didn't know what to do with myself on Epitaph Day on Nov2nd. Do we still honor that day? If so please share.
