I am hereby authorizing The Merry Pranksters as the Official Moosey Coordinators. With all the Honors and Benefits occurring thereto.

Oh great........ just Moose poop on the Prankster!!! What "honors and benefits"? I think you mean "horrors and atrocities"!!! Must be a typo.

I do what Angel Winks just said. There's a couple different ways to do it, depending on how you want to plant it... if it has clues or not.

You can either make it a traveling event box and call it a "hidden in plain sight" or "table top box", and just add a new event each time you move it. For these, you wouldn't have clues. Just leave it in the gathering room either out in the open or 'hidden in plain sight'.

Or, you can make it a temporary traditional box with Word of Mouth clues. For this, you can change the physical location of the box each time so it will show up in searches for that area. Then in the clues, just type available at whatever event and list the clues or state WOM clues available then. After the event, change status to unavailable.

OMG! You guys are CRAZY! Once I start listing boxes tomorrow and your printer bursts into flames - you'll stop printing :)

There over 200 just the night of the event - you'll get PLENTY of ink :)

Daniel Boone was once asked if he had ever been lost. He replied no, but that he had been bumfuzzled for a week once.

Remove the "lg" at the end of the URL. The large version gets deleted after a few weeks/months.

Maybe our webmaster can think of a way to forward links to the small version? Not a big deal, but would be helpful.

There was an event this past year that Music Chick put on. Nothing else is planned for this year though!

Hmm......... I've often been told that Moose are the MOST intelligent of all species, but perhaps a little reminder is due in this situation:
1)We currently hold the keys to the carvers.
2)Your trail name includes such items as a$$, $mut and Twa_!!!

Although we're technically in charge, we have no really Eevil intentions and we'll leave your fate in the hands of the other administrators. Good luck with that!!!!!!!!

See you soon - for betterer or worserer!

It would have to be cut a shape right out of the same sheet so it will fit back in place, and the shapes being either something you can spin around any which way and it didn't matter...Orrrrrr...think puzzle pieces or even notches, making sure as you cut it out you give an indicator of how you fit it back in correctly.

Well, at least I know it’s in the house.

Last night I finished up carving a new stamp. I left it on the coffee table where I carve. The plan was to get up this morning and do the first printing. Ok, let’s get going... wait, what!? Where’s my stamp?

Over in the corner my cat is looking at me coyly. Grrr. Now the search begins... I just hope it’s still in one piece.

Cats.

Our dog, Taz, has been known to hide my stamps too.....I'd prepped a ton of them for the event in Australia and carefully placed them in a lock n' lock for going into my luggage. Woke up and box was GONE.....panic search revealed it was carefully buried in the backyard......sigh.
