ONBC Contest Rules to be posted 2 Past Midnight Tonight

Unread postby Liz » Wed Nov 19, 2008 11:05 am

ONBC turned 5 on November 1, 2008 at 2 past midnight (in honor of Two Past Midnight: Secret Window, Secret Garden by Stephen King—our first discussion selection). DITHOT and I were out of computer range at that time, so we delayed the partay until we could return to our posts, as it were, at ONBC.

So now it is time to celebrate. And we want to share the celebration with all of you in the form of a treasure hunt. The contest is open to all Zoners (no previous reading of ONBC books required), as all of the clues can be found in the ONBC Archives.

So keep a sharp eye for the contest code and the clues to be posted at
Two Past Midnight, Pacific Standard Time, November 20. The contest is time sensitive (the first correct answers win).

That's a great collage, Liz! It's neat to see all the books displayed visually that way.

So it's a treasure hunt, eh? Sounds like a lot of fun!
:cool:

Thanks, mate.

Aye, there’s pirate plunder buried in the deppths of the ONBC Archives locker. Keep a sharp eye for the treasure map to be revealed tonight.

A treasure map? How exciting! :yahoo:

Sounds like you and DITHOT have come up with something very special to celebrate ONBC's birthday!

Part-Time Poet, it's not as elaborate as it may seem. The treasure map I speak of is more like guidelines. :captainjack:

Oh Dear, does midnight Pacific time mean 3:00 A.M. here in Eastern time? I am a night owl but not sure if I want to start using my brain at that hour. I think I'll have to get a late start.

No worries, gemini. Answers aren't due until Sunday!
