This series celebrates the rivers found near several TALE sites over the years. You must guess the TALE anniversary number when these letterboxes were placed within 5 guesses to see the clues.
Box 1: Brazos River - TALE 2
TALE 2 was held at the Hale Lake Picnic Pavilion in Brazos Bend SP on March 19, 2005. It was our first "Boxing on the Brazos" event and it was notable for the Wild West Clue game and Beignet Eating Alien (BEA) incident.
Box 2: Brazos River - TALE 9
TALE 9 was also held at Brazos Bend SP, but at the Dining Hall on March 3, 2012. Its theme was "Get Wild", which was easy to do with all the alligators and crazy letterboxers around.
