The Big Blue Team is hosting an event

"The Lass that Loved a Sailor" Letterboxing Meet Up
May 1 - 3, 2009
St. Thomas, Ontario

Please join us for a day or two or three -- whichever works for you. We promise to keep you entertained and letterboxing in some very beautiful areas including Downtown St. Thomas, Old Talbot Street, Pinafore Park and areas further afield.

Tentative schedule of events:

Friday
7 pm: Meet & greet, getting settled, late night letterboxing

Saturday
10 am: Registration at Pinafore Park, swaps, goodie bags, workshops, letterboxing
1 pm: Pot luck lunch, group photo, door prizes, more letterboxing
7 pm: Supper and social at a local restaurant (location to be decided when we see the number of people wishing to attend)

Sunday:
11 am: letterboxing

There will be three series of boxes planted. One will be in Pinafore Park, One will be a historic walking tour or St. Thomas, One will be for those of you who enjoy driving to picturesque locales in the area.

Clue packages will be provided when your team registers.

We would love some help with a few things:
1. someone interested in teaching a workshop of simple stamp carving
2. people interested in donating hand-carved stamps to be planted for this event.

If you would like to plant letterboxes while you are visiting us, we would be absolutely thrilled.

We will provide more details as plans are finalized.

See you on the trail,
The Big Blue Team
