Noted. What do I do if I never received the light up medallion I ordered. Ordered it on the 12th. Got the email conformation and all but the thing never was mailed to me?

Re: Clue #2

Is it crazy to think of IMP as an option? We’ve been told 6 feet here, 6 feet there, all year. Well when you are buried you go 6 feet under so they say. And for the second part of this clue I think the CW is saying it’s already being given to you. Just a thought. I know it’s a separate thread and will probably get lost but I’ll throw 10 on Indian mounds.

Here is the previous clue:

Clue #1

Be it turmoil endemic or global pandemic

It’s been a tough year for us all.

So rather than punt, we renewed this year’s hunt:

Join us, it’ll be a ball!

 

Don’t be odd, stay in your pod.

Keep six feet away from strangers.

Wear a mask when on your task

To keep all safe from dangers.


Re: Clue #2

Allison Wonderland
 

I'm feeling Hidden Falls on this one. The syllables on this one are an unusually strict pattern 10-7-10-7. That could also be taken to mean 07, 07 if you just take the last digit of each. That was the year it was at Hidden Falls and Jake found it on Clue 3, which might be what "Don't wait for the last clue" is referencing. If so, the "ball" from Clue 1 could be the balls on the power lines there.

So I'll move 10 to Hidden Falls.

David, you are clearly missing all the clues so far...

The first clue is out. As usual it doesn't seem to say much more other than announcing that the hunt has begun and making a few current event references.

This is particularly true after last year. I remember sitting at Shamrock's last year *after* what would be the final clue of that hunt had come out, and I still wasn't sure which park it was in. I don't think anyone else was either. Even those who were thinking Highland weren't absolutely sold on it. I was actually quite convinced it was at Phalen. I heard arguments for other parks that were also quite convincing. I would rate the actual clue explanations as only the 5th or 6th best explanation for what the clues meant last year. So if there was that much uncertainty on (and even after) the final clue last year, I would certainly recommend caution on the first clue this year. Last year's hunt with people scattered all over and hardly anyone in the right vicinity when it was found would have been ideal for this Covid-affected hunt, so I would look for them to try and duplicate that for this year. Consequently I strongly recommend keeping an open mind with these clues. I was sure last year I had the clues perfectly figured out and I was perfectly wrong (as was most everyone else). So listen to all the theories, even if you think you already have the answer. That would be my recommendation.

Also, now that the first clue has come out, the Allison Wonderland Park Pick Pool moves to Stage 2. I see some of you have already made your guesses for this new round. You have until Clue 2 comes out at midnight tomorrow night to make or change your next guess. If you missed out on the pre-hunt guess, don't worry too much. While that guess could determine the winner, it rarely ever has, so you still have plenty of time to still jump in.

Re: And So It Begins

Mike Flipp
 

no, not I, couldn't make the zoom, was at church tonight

Also it stated "rather than Punt" ie a football reference, so no football field? Stick to baseball? 
But that was good for the 4th down cross reference, never occurred to me.

Flippster




P.S. Warning - Do not take the Mark!

(Rev 13:16)  And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
(Rev 13:17)  And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
(Rev 13:18)  Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

This could happen very soon! And once it happens it will be too late!
So what's next?
I'd repent and get right with Jesus, asap!. He died on the cross for you because He loves you. Your sins can now be washed clean but you have to make the next move and seek God. God will not go against your free will. He wants to Love you, but you have to let Him in. Let Him know today! No one is promised tomorrow...

Ball, we have CHS park down by Bruce Vento Nature Park, Swede Hollow or Mears Park, paying tribute to the BIG HUGE DEAL the St. Paul Saints just signed a HUGE deal with the MInnesota Twins becoming their official AAA Minor Ball team.
