Letterboxing combines artistic ability with “treasure-hunt” in parks, forests and cities around the world. Participants seek out hidden letterboxes by cracking codes and following clues all to try to find a miniature piece of art in the form of a rubber stamp.
Letterboxers stamp their discoveries in their personal logbook, then use their own stamp, called a signature stamp, to stamp the letterbox’s logbook. For more information visit Atlas Quest.(https://www.atlasquest.com/)
Our event will include a how-to class for those new to Letterboxing that will also include supplies and instruction on how to carve your own signature stamp. Then clues will be handed out and the hunt will be on. Clues will also be available for experienced “Boxers” to come out on the day and nab some new boxes.
The class and some of the boxes will take place at Temple Hall Farm Regional Park. Clues for stamps at Red Rock Wilderness and Balls Bluff Regional Parks will also be handed out on the day; afterwards the clues will be posted to Atlas Quest. Clue packets will be available from 10am-2pm outside the Temple Hall Farm Regional Park office.
The class will start at 10:00am and run about an hour. The class size will be limited so sign up soon.
