Sh***** who appears to be its owner reads this. sorry I couldn't contact you direct the book was so badly damaged I can't even work out your whole name or tell if th...

Not every one leaves an impression of their stamp. I've seen that even when we find box only minutes after someone else has clearly "found it"- we watched them but stayed back to they had some space and we still had a hunt- they haven't left a stamp so we don;t know who they were. I guess plenty of ...

Don't worry boris. boxing IS fun. And so to some people is gripeing about standards slipping... But this is the internet and the topic has got people talking, it would be dull if we all thought the same, but we don't. I'll agree with PB that a nice stamp is a better "reward" for the hunt. But at pre...

guess we must be boxing on different bits of the moor , your description of a "worn scar leading to a poxy marge tub" is not one I recognise, I can't tell if it'll be a generic or a nice stamp till I get inside the box. The game is hunting for them. IF DNPA have an issue with boxes it won't be about...

nothing stops you, except your conscience. The 100 club is not life or death, member ship is not a right or compulsory .Its just a bit of fun. If you don't like the stamp for what ever reason don't take an imprint, damaging / defecting in / losing the box just spoils the game for someone else who ma...

All found with a 4 yr old in...

As I understood it, its find 100 letter boxes. If your being hard core and not using a clues catalogue or charity walk sheet, those first 100 boxes might be any thing, how would you know if they were part of a series or WOM or a kiddy box. Now the clues catalogue can be sent off for with out being a...

welcome to the game Tall and small. I sincerely hope the 100 club don't want quite that much info. We just do the stamp and write box name and date found on same page. If I find a box with out knowing its name I'll list where approximately it was. We also box with a small boy , used to sign with a v...
