Sounds like a great event!
So sorry I missed it.

Thank you so much for hosting it! We had been to one before so we had a high level of anticipation but this one exceeded everything else we've ever seen! The carves were amazing we loved the clues (not directions!! 8D)

Our hope is to make it back for an event in a slightly kinder month than January? We're still bummed out that we missed the Searsport event because of my first round of surgery.... And failing that we sincerely hope we get to see you again soon!

for everyone who was kind enough to send us a note about not being able to socialize with us I apologize. there was no way I was going to miss a chance to get as many of these phenomenal carves as possible.

For me the funniest part of the entire event was when the Winter Owls series posted while we were on our way headed down to Portland and I ordered Dbare to turn around and go back for them....you should have seen his face!

Thanks again to everyone who contributed but most especially to Team MudCup!!

Wow! Just.. wow! Only my second event, and such a wonderful experience. Thank you to Team Mudcup, and all of the carvers. I am in awe of your talent and generosity.
I sent an email out to the group asking about some stamps that I can't figure out how to log, but am wondering if this is a better venue.

1. Duckies w/umbrellas by the pool at Quality Suites
2. Penny Loafers part of the Best Foot Forward Series
and now I have a third one..
3. The hotel Event Stamp (Night Owls...)

Any help would be so appreciated.

I have a few I don't know the box name/number of also. One is a skunk that was by a door ... and a cassette tape ... in the same vicinity. Also wondering about the plastic ornaments and little words DOE, CIA, ICE, etc.

Cassette - Flashback

plastic ball ornaments - things that Hang (or something like that)

CIA - 301783 - The rest should be numbered around that

How about the toilet stamp in the outhouse outside of the front door of the Quality Suites?

And the "Who Cut One" stamp tucked in to a picture frame outside of the bathrooms in the fishing section at LL Bean?

Hmmmm....I sense a potty theme with my issues!

Where do I even begin! I had the time of my life this weekend!

My first thanks goes out to Janila who so graciously swung into RI from PA to pick me up and bring me along, you have given me memories to last a lifetime.

I got to see some old faces, met new ones, ran around like a kid in the hotel, climbed like a goat over snowbanks, ate like a queen, had a jolly good time with the LL Bean indoor hunt - the clues certainly kept me alert - and the beautiful stamps, so many talented carvers. Event organizers - you’ve outdone yourselves.

I loved the area so much that Not A Lone Wolf and I are returning for the Aunt Agatha library event. Hotel already booked!

I believe that's called Tea Potty perhaps... if that's not exactly the name, it IS a personal traveler by teacup

The Braum stamp is part of route 66. It's a milk bottle.
the LLbean 100 is a stand alone box, not listed yet that I've seen.
