Excellent. I was planning on getting Wake Forest or Wake County today between the rains...

Feel free to skip X and move on to Y if you feel like it.

Just a thought, how about expanding the possibilities for X or Q or Z by requiring only that the letter be "in" the word, not necessarily the first letter...

I'm just sayin...........

No problems with that at all. More interested in keeping it moving as opposed to being a stickler to some arbitrary rule. If that's okay with everyone else, I'll change the first page.

Edit: First post changed to reflect rule change.
Thanks for the idea, California.

Will this work? There's no "Welcome to"..... but it would get the game rolling.

Certainly. I like the "Welcome to", but would rather see the game move than wait for an obscure one. Great tag.

I could grab York, but I'm guessing the same person nabbing two in a row is frowned upon?

From the first page...


Welcome to - the operative part of the title.

Get a "WELCOME TO..." city, state, locality, park, anything sign.
This will go in alphabetical order.
This is going to be a low key game. Drama will be ignored.
If you get a particular letter and no one else gets the following one within 72 hours/3 days, you can get another one yourself.
For likely tricky ones like Q and X, if no one can come up with anything within, let's say, a week, we can skip it.

Edit 7/22/14: For Q, X and Z, if you can't find one that begins with those letters, something that contains those letters is fine. Again, if it sits more than a week or so, feel free to skip it and move on to the next one.

Oops. Just saw this now. I won't be grabbing that now, heading out to the Central ADV Rally for the next ten days. If anyone is looking to take a road trip in the next week and a half, come join 150+ riders for the biggest party in the Midwest.

Hopefully this game will be back to a fresh alphabet when I return

What's the call on the "Y" tag?

Yorkville isn't that far from here. (Not sure if it has a Welcome sign, though)
