So I went to the page to read your clue and the tree picture is AWESOME, I am jealous that I did not find a tree like that. It looks just like a gnome is busting out of it, too cool.

you really have always taken such good pictures anyway.

Thanks. Just hope my little Gnome is safe there. It was a really busy trail today! I think the shade had something to do with it.

I placed a gnome box, but didn't put it as an event box.

Since not everyone followed the admin's direction, perhaps all the planters could insert the keyword, gnomeday2014. An advance search with this keyword is a lot more efficient. Getting everyone to add this ... well, that's another challenge. I just noticed some 140 signed up for this event. That's a LOT of gnomes!

But don't look away. Just in case.

For those "Doctor Who" fans out there, here are some things to think about gnomes:

Wow! That is a neat tree. I may just have to find a tree like that to use as a reference point for a letterbox.

It is not supposed to be an event box. It is a traditional, but the name of the box should say Gnome Day 2014: ___________

The whole day (Gnome Day 2014) is an event, a virtual event.

It's an online "event" in which people physically planted traditional boxes....follow the clues to location. So you can change the listing to traditional.

Did they change the name of the event? I could have swore it was Hide a Gnome Day. I can change it on AQ but I am not changing it on the logbook in the box.

I cannot find the event details. I searched through the events and cannot find it. I became curious when a new GnomeDay2014 letter box popped up in my state and started searching for the announcement but it isn't listed in mine. Is this event just for more experienced letterboxer? I would like to plant one.

It was a virtual event listed last June. Look under People, Events, , go under the Search icon, filter by Past events. The idea was to plant a gnome letterbox on the same day as everyone else. Anyone could join. It won't show up as available, since the date is passed. However if you would like to list a similar event, you are welcome to!

Was it mine? I had planted a gnome stamp on "Gnome Day" in June for the virtual event. Just left week I added a second box to turn it into a series - so it showed up on the New Box listing again.

You can carve and plant a gnome stamp whenever you want! It doesn't have to be part of anything else.

Ahhh thank you for the info! Perhaps next year they event can do the same thing and have it include a gnome with an American flag since it is Flag Day in America that day :-)
