To The Hunters:
The capsule is gone. I went and checked today because some folks posted comments that they thought it might have been cleaned up, so just to be sure I went to take a look. Sure enough, it's gone forever never to be found again.
The capsule was hidden just a mere couple blocks south of the brewery at the Northcenter Town Square, right off Lincoln Ave. I made reference to a Crier because if one would find a Crier, I figured, it would likely be in the town square.
I try to be diligent in posting people's comments and addressing ideas while not giving hint, although I inadvertently give them. For instance, someone thought that a homeless person might have grabbed it and I made mention that they would have claimed the prize. The person who made the blog comment pointed out that they would need to call and they wouldn't have a cell phone, but all they would have had to do was walk two blocks, so that is a clue of sorts.
People thoughtfully developed some great ideas in finding it. Thanks for that. We try to make the hunt fun and challenging without making it too easy or sending people on a wild goose chase. This balance can be a challenge. During my senior year of high school I was accepted to a Scavenging Hunt theory program that would consume four years with rigorous Hunt education. Eventually I would have graduated with a certificate and the ability to command any tasteful Scavenger hunt in a dynamic fashion, but I missed enrollment and went on to occupy my time in the many great watering holes our country has to offer.
With that said, we hope you had fun.
The hunt will return and soon as we score a new capsule.
