Nice work Jon. I'll watch for it on the 10th in the public BB forum and make it sticky.

I will also attach the pdf files these are made from (pics don't show for pdf in the message, so converted to jpg, which squeezed the pictures) pdfs (below) are 8 1/2 x 11, so pics are approx 4x3...easier to see?

I don't expect anyone to recognize many of the shops, but each of the groups has two with an embedded clue that is easy to find via search or member profile info. several others have SOMETHING in them that will give it away. the added clues (13th and 15th) will make a couple more "easy". As it sits currently, with a few minutes work, you would only have to GUESS at less than half of the shops, thus the bonus system! The "raw" pics will also be stashed somewhere on the site....we want people to explore!

I appreciate the comments...will keep fine-tuning.

Jon
