If your name is on the alternate list please do not request to join the private forum until you have been moved to the participants list. As cancellations come in I will move up alternates in the order listed. You will then have 48 hours to request to join the private forum and be marked confirmed. If you fail to do that then your name will be removed and another alternate will be moved up. If you still want to attend the hunt then your name will go to the bottom of the alternates list.

Check the forum at least daily as life situations change and people have to cancel for various reasons.

These two hunts were extremely hard to make the selections for with the limited number of slots available. I know quite a few of our regulars didn't make the participants list and are on the alternate list but we did the best we could. Originally John said 150 for both....I was able to stay within that number for Coles Hill but not Spillmans so he agreed to add a few more slots to accommodate a few more. Thants for your understanding.

Deadline for confirmations is Monday July 29th and deadline for entry fee payments is Friday September 13th. Alternates are moved into slots that become vacant after these two the forum closely during these time periods.

For you Chris, and anyone else new to the confirmation process who might be confused, requesting private group access doesn't involve sending an email.

Clicking on the link in Rose's post here:,718625
will take you to the control panel where you can request access to the applicable hunt's private forum. Don't request access if you are not yet on the attendee list even if you see the drop down group choices. Things will move fast here on out, so check back here frequently to see if Rose has moved you up and follow all her instructions to the letter so you don't get bumped back off the list.

It may seem a tad harsh, but the fact is that a lot of folks are vying for these few coveted invites, so those who can't or won't follow instructions and meet the various deadlines will be left behind, unfortunately. There is always going to be someone on the alternate list anxiously waiting and ready to take your place.

Good luck to all the alternates, hope you all get your chance to move up. Be patient, optimistic, and most of all attentive so you don't miss your chance.
