Geocache Description:

Earl needs your help ...

Our friend Earl is running for "Mayer" again and once again he is asking for your support.

What he is asking for is a bit odd and with that you must know some background. Understand that Earl has enacted some policies and pushed through a couple of self serving agenda items that, although helped him, also worked out well for the community. However, a wicked local smear campaign has been launched against Earl pointing out these shortcomings in an attempt to get him out of office.

The reality of it is this - Earl's new policies have burned many bridges in the town. Officials in City Hall, The Courthouse, The Police Station, and several other city outlets have become enraged. His cost saving measures alone have slashed most of their boondoggles.

So here we are - Earl's A Real Leader (EARL) - trying to get our buddy re-elected. But it is all about the Cloak and Dagger these days. The group that is trying to stop us - Earl's A Real Loser (EARL) is a highly motivated group and they have done many things to keep us from casting our votes. This is what we have done...

Go to the listed coordinates and there you will see a bench with a sign in front of it. As you are sitting on the bench look at the left sign and make note of the two dates. Use ABCD - EFGH for the dates.

Use these numbers to go to N 41 C (A-E) . (H-E) (H+E) G
W 090 A E . (D-B) C H

At this new location you will find an object that points at a building. Find the one common box outside that building. From here (the two common boxes) you will see a small parking lot 275 feet East - park there and find a rock with a plaque on it. Count the number of spokes in the wheel that is represented (this number is now represented as I). Also, the plaque is naming a Club - what Club is it naming (2 words) - (the number of letters is now represented as J).

(Plaque reads "A __________ _________ Club")

Use these numbers to go to...

N 41 (C+A) (A-D) . (J-H) (I-G+E) (F-B)
W 090 (A) (A-D) . (J-C) (I+E-A) (H-D)

Here you will find a small container with no room for campaign memorabilia or trade items. Please help Support EARL (Thats the EARL that is for Earl and not the EARL that is not for Earl). Politics can be very confusing.

When election time draws near, we will collect the ballot and submit all your signatures. Thanks for your support - and please bring your own pencil.

Parts of this cache may require a fee during the 4th of July festival - Riverboat Days.
