When: Sunday, August 15, 2010
Time: drop by from 11 am - 1 p.m.
Where: Wright Park - 501 South I St. / 6th Ave. at S. Yakima Ave.

Website: http://www.metroparkstacoma.org/page.php?id=978

Come meet other letterboxers from Tacoma and other surrounding areas! This will be an informal gathering. Drop by if you can! I will be there earlier in the morning to snag some tables, hopefully in a covered picnic table area. Look for the yellow, green, and purple balloons and/or signs and tablecloths. This is not a potluck, but please feel free to bring a picnic lunch with you. An event stamp will be available.

Wright Park is a beautiful and well-maintained park in Tacoma’s historic Stadium District. The park is home to the W.W. Seymour Botanical Conservatory. Public bathrooms are available and most, if not all, pathways through and around the park are accessible. Dogs are allowed on leashes (please clean up after them!). There is no fee to enter or use the park and you can find street parking nearby.

There is one letterbox in Wright Park, and plenty of letterboxing opportunities within a few miles of the park.

Hope to see and meet many of you there! :-)

Sounds like fun.  Unfortunately, I'm a little closer to Washington, DC that to Tacoma, WA.  Let us know how it goes, though.

So true. I could write almost the same. The only difference is that here it is Louisiana, not DC.

I wonder if TPTB on this website will delete this message, just like what was done over at the "other" geocaching website? I guess they can't stand to have the competition. Funny thing is, they have a Genuine Imitation Letterbox catagory over there, but very few people ever use it. Maybe it's because so many people are addicted to the use of a GPSr telling them where to go and how far away it is.

Navicache doesn't have the same fear of other caching sites or similar activities.  I'm sure your post will be safe.  I am in NO WAY surprised to see it was deleted from Groundspeak's forums, though.

I am sure that will not happen here. And thanks for reminding me again of one of the reasons I am here. It's so sad that they get away with this, that there isn't a big outcry.

I think I droned over this at TC.com, but I'll repeat it here.
I got into g-caching from a link I found at Letterboxing. Never did find the initial letterbox that got me started in this madness.
I have found at least 8 LB's by accident.(always while TC.com'ing) and searched and found 1 by choice.
Nothing wrong with LB'ing. I've found them in some great spots.I'm sure I'll be seeking more very soon...

I really would like to do create a letterbox myself. I looked into the issue and especially into how to carve the stamp. I got to do that of course. However, not even our large, local crafts store has the necessary tools. Now, I might just order them online next time I can just add them to another order anyway (to save on the shipping). Did anyone here carve stamps for letterboxing yet?

If you have created a Username on www.AtlasQuest.com, then click on the Menu item of "People". Select the "Find Letterboxer" link and enter the following: "Hart x6".

This same person, who lives back East, carved a stamp for me a month or so ago. But now, I am carving my own and not for others, because I'm not that experienced yet.

You can even order a carving kit (for about $25 plus shipping) from "The Campfire Lady" as well.

After finding a couple LB's on Saturday with cylceangela (1 accidentally, 1 on purpose), I've signed up for AtlasQuest & LbNA and will be adding letterboxing to my geocaching outings. Being a big fan of the "alternative" geocaching sites, this seems to be a natural progression. Plus, I just found out that there is box at the cupcake place I visit every Wednesday at lunch.
