Adding my thanks to the group! I love this event.

P.S. Whoever made the chicken gnocchi soup, I would love your recipe. It was amazing.

I'll add to that: I would like ALL the recipes I can get please. From this year and all previous years. Next year is our 10th anniversary of the event, and we're putting together a cookbook. Thank you!
Congrats to Mark and Sue Pepe

Slots are filling up fast! We only have space for 2 more teams! Get your team of 4-6 people together, come up with a team name and signature stamp... and get ready for some wicked Maine fun!

I am planning a trip to Rhode Island and would like to find boxes along the way. I figure it must be an advanced search but cannot get it figured out. Help please.

I guess some people would say use trip planner. But what I do is a simple search of the towns I will be going through or very near. I do a 5 mile radius. I have found that to work very well.

Just click "Nearby boxes" and you'll get the entire trip from FL to ME. Pick the pages that apply.

Thank you for the help. This is why I don't leave Maine. Too much interstate out there.

I haven’t signed up yet as I don’t know how many more surgeries I need beyond the next or even how long healing will be. But when I get a clearer pic of my situation I will reconsider. Sounds like a blast!

Then who the heck was that at Libby's Blue Line Diner? (Now Athens Diner)

So much beautiful country...with boxes, out there. So many talented carvers as well. Though I do love Maine, one of my favorite states.

For driving days I use the directional search (ie. 150 miles southwest of Portland, ME) and either keyword restarea (one word) or click drive bys. Once I’m at a destination, then I use the regular local search function.

I'm hoping this is an oversight... its the same weekend as Burton Island event in VT. We generally try to avoid having multiple events in New England on the same weekend as we all try to support each other's events...

I too am booked for Burton Island - so would be passing on your Egg Hunt, which I was looking forward to attending.

I was going back and forth about Rhode Island. Because that's just me. But I have to make Burton Island. Love that place.

This is, unfortunately, the only weekend we have available between our monthly music festivals and being out of town.

We'll be there on Sunday as we'll be returning from vacation on Saturday. Thank you for being willing to still host. If we can have Christmas in July, we can certainly have Easter in June!

thanks for rescheduling the Egg Hunt. I had dropped out because of the pandemic. I am sheltered in place. But if we are busted out by June I will certainly be there.

Floral 8 - campus closures
Board: Region: Northeast
Apr 3, 2020 9:01am
I planted and posted these boxes this week at the Mount Holyoke College. Since then the college has closed all public access to all of their grounds until further notice. So if you printed the clues for Floral 8, please don't go until you check to see if the college grounds have been reopened.
