Letterbox Event Planning for BoxON! 2012 - Mystery Markham

Okay.  I've got to be honest here.  I'm becoming a little concerned.  What was I thinking?  Why did I agree to do this?  We are one month out and I have almost 50 letterboxers relying on my ability to actually plan an event...

I have a lot done, but I still have a lot to do.  I have a scary pile of stamps staring at me in a box on my desk that need to be planted.  I have still more stamps that are... theoretically... in the mail coming to me as we speak.  I have letterboxes to make, plantings galore, logbooks to finish, clues to write, clues to organize, follow ups with the venue, food to organize...

And then random other things pop into my head: what if it rains? do I need to entertain the kids? I don't know how to entertain kids... what if the kids revolt? what if they mutiny and the police need to be called in?

I'm sure I'll get it all done.  I always do.  But now I'm starting to wonder why on earth I agreed to do this. Work [read: that thing I do to give me enough money to allow me to letterbox] is going to be crazy in September, so between working late at work and working on this stuff...

Tick, tock... time is running out...


  1. Oh, thanks for reminding me. I need to train my kids to be revolting. No entertainment required.

    Easy does it. Not every box in a series needs a logbook, especially at an event. We'll all bring umbrellas. Promise.


    1. Heck no. There won't be a logbook for every box. One for each series, that's all ;)
