Park on Blossom st in front of Christopher towers



a few details about the statue and monuments in the park:

WITH THE FAITH AND COURAGE OF
THEIR FOREFATHERS WHO MADE
POSSIBLE THE FREEDOM OF THESE
UNITED STATES
THE BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA
DEDICATE THIS COPY OF THE
STATUE OF LIBERTY AS A PLEDGE
OF EVERLASTING FIDELITY AND
LOYALTY
40TH ANNIVERSARY CRUSADE TO
STRENGTHEN THE ARM OF LIBERTY
1950
--
A nearby memorial reads:
The Statue of Liberty Division
World War II
The 77th Infantry Division trained at Fort Jackson in 1942 and fought on Guam, Leytl, Kerama Retto, IE Shima and Okinawa. Returning to Cebu, they took 6500 Japanese prisoners. They then returned to occupy Hokkaido, Japan where the division was deactivated in 1946. The division suffered a total of 3201 Killed in Action, 10,531 wounded and 133 Missing in Action.

Liberty does not come cheap

Another marker reads:
In memory of William Bratton Steele Chandler, Jr
and his beloved scouts
Scout Executive 1944-1975
Service Above Self
----------
Inscription: (On plaque on base:) WITH THE FAITH AND COURAGE OF/THEIR FOREFATHERS WHO MADE/POSSIBLE THE FREEDOM OF THESE/UNITED STATES/THE BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA/DEDICATE THIS COPY OF THE/STATUE OF LIBERTY AS A PLEDGE/OF EVERLASTING FIDELITY AND/LOYALTY/40TH ANNIVERSARY CRUSADE TO/STRENGTHEN THE ARM OF LIBERTY/1950

Description: Full-length figure of a classically robed woman, representing Liberty, wearing a crown. She holds a torch aloft in her proper right hand and a tablet crooked in her proper left arm. Statue stands on a rectangular pedestal.

Remarks: This is one of nearly 200 small replicas of Bartholdi's Statue of Liberty (IAS record 76003645) placed around the country as part of the Boy Scouts of America's 40th anniversary (1950). According to a March 1986 Fact Sheet from the Boy Scouts of America (on file in IAS), the idea for the project originated with Jack Whitaker, then Scout Commissioner of the Kansas City Area Council. The copper statues were manufactured by Friedley-Voshardt and purchased through the Kansas City Scout office.
The sculpture was restored in April 1986 by Karkadoulias Art Bronze in Cincinnati. The tarnished and pitted statue was given a golden-brown patina and a protective coating. Missing spikes in the crown were replaced, dents were hammered out and the flame in the torch was coated with 24-karat gold. IAS files include related articles from the Columbia Record, April 18, 1986 and August 4, 1986.

Most excellent grab and tag.

I can ride anywhere I want, but what I like about this game is that I not only get to ride, but learn something as well.
I knew the location of this tag, but it was within my self-imposed - hats off to Land - ten mile limit.
Looking for the new tag and hoping it's outside that limit.

Thanks Rvrhwki.

The tag is located about halfway between a group of buildings that is known for its tomato pie and bluegrass and the original location of one of the buildings in a texas town.

New clue

I'm surprised noone has grabbed this up with the wonderful weather we 've been having for the last few days Heres a few for clues for the bad weather riders that still have not located it.:

You will find the tag located on the road the maytag - maganovox tee vee repairman lives on between a river road and a street that shares the same names as the home of an ohio native american baseball team. If the lone star state hint had you stumpholed just take the most direct, thou a little curvy route( there are a few nice sweepers) between a 46 million dollar bridge project on the richland- calhoun line and the state park that shares the same name as a local tribe.

New Tag.

Just in time for a nice Sunday ride, here is the new Midlands Tag.



You will easily find this place just west of it's
namesake along a 3 digit highway that adds up
to 18. Good luck and happy motorcycling.

Many thanks to KG4LHO for posting my previous
grab earlier today.

Bruced!



We were there around noon or a little before but were having too much fun in the dirt afterwards to stop and post the grab.

It's pretty tall:



That's the tomato pie in the center:

Laura, Glad to see you and Wes met up for some fun in the dirt!


Sorry about Paddy brucing y'all though. We were talking about the tag over lunch and I offered to let him use my laptop to post it. While we were getting it fired up, he said, "I bet Laura has already snagged it and I'll be bruced!" He breathed a sigh of relief when we got it loaded and no one had posted up yet.
