    Phoenixball hidden this morning in Arlington. It remains hidden but its not there any more. I wonder if Dick Wiley knows where it is?? UPDATE: Dick Wiley has apparently found the Phoenixball

    I guess I need to get my ordinance in before its found

    Hidden in Plain Sight: Hide the Calvinball in plain sight and see if anyone notices. This would be in the middle of a happy hour or coffee or some other FS gathering. The Calvinball must be in plain sight and there must be photographic evidence. For the hider: 5 points for the hide and 10 points if no one notices. If someone "finds" the Calvinball, they earn 15 points for the find.



    Oh yeah..... and video of me dancing when I found the Phoenixball:



    Oh yeah ... and me consuming swag



    And for my dog pic this is Darby, available for adoption through Lost Dog Rescue

    Your bike is curiously not dirty enough.

    The Nivlacball was last seen doing laps with Josh on Judd's Hampster wheel of Misery (Hey Josh when you are done with your Century around the Hampster Wheel of Misery, you're gonna hide the Nivlacball, arent you??)

    The Phoenixball was last seen hidden on EMM's bike

    Will no one be casting spells? The Prior Incantato Spell was just sitting there.... out in the open... available to anyone!!! *sigh* Well, then.... the Phoenixball having sojourned from the Land of Queen Mary, to Christopher's District, and then to the Commonwealth on the seventh orbit of the sun around the earth... Tim the Enchanter casts Gemino's Charm. Out of Mount Orodruin emerges a third Calvinball.... er... to be named ... er.... tomorrow. (what's tomorrw?) (oh, nothing. Nothing. Dont worry about it).

    A reminder that NPS land is out of bounds.

    MSTANSILL
    For rescuing the Phoenixball from the Northern Realm, 3 Enchanted Points
    8 Points for the Find (how many pilgrims biked right by this ball????)
    5 Points for Swag
    10 Points for crossing the frontier of realms
    Lemonrock as far as I am concerned. 7 Points
    Draft ordinance got one like. Dilly Dilly
    I think you were supposed to dance. Not sure when this ordinance took effect. -2. But hey, I'm arbitrary.
    Mstansill is awarded 31 points

    RCANNON100
    Once again rcannon100 did a magnificent job. Great dancing. Great dog picture. Crossed into the badlands. Broke SClaeys bag with the hide. All very excellent.
    Rcannon100 is awarded another 100 points
    My Hidden in Plain Sight Spell is a codified spell

    Please tell me the score you are under the delusion you have earned.

    Codified spells and score are maintained in the Library of the First Page of this Thread.

    Think about this for a second:

    Here's my not generated by a random internet website haiku...

    Rain mosaic-district
    A chilly dumpling biking

    And my ex-doggo looking cool.

    The Oracle Strava - aka Big Data - says that EMM has "found" the Phoenixball cleverly hidden in her bottle cage on her bike. So Claeys can receive his score

    SCLAEYS
    5 for the Find without delay
    15 for first find
    10 for crossing the frontier of realms (see technically Claeys found the Phoenixball in DC, even though I hid it on his bike in Arlington)
    10 for the picture of a beast
    5 points for corporate propaganda including in the Phoenixball
    Steve's happy dance is having technical problems
    Claeys is awarded 55 points and owes me some beer

    I believe that the technical issues for the happy dance have been corrected. Thus, I humbly request points for the dance and having to acquire the knowledge for posting such dance.
