A message from some of our top rock hunters:

From Shupster

"First of all I would like to thank 96.3 KKLZ for having this contest. Also a special thanks to Miz Lolas for throwing up the 10,000.00 and Michael E. Minden for the diamond earings.

Second, how about a great big hand for Brian, the guy who found the rock. What an accomplishment!!! I have no idea if he was looking for three days, two weeks, or the whole time, but he brought it home. Congrats!!!

Third, how about a big shout out to DeCall, the biggest fan and avid rock hunter of us all. He not only owns a business, but works full time there and not to take anything away from KKLZ,  he busts his a** on the JBR web site. This guy is amazing. What a great friend and I will tell everybody you have to meet this guy. He has been very close to finding this rock, he would sleep in his van, welding truck, or some other vehicle I cannot identify at Logandale and go over the map and satellite picture with a high lighter and mark the area he searched. A very determined man to find this prize. He would give his left leg to help anybody  to find this rock. I cannot say enough about this gentlemen. You ROCK!!!

Ok, now my perspective on the JBR 2011: What a great contest!!! Not only do I live for this, half the time I cannot sleep but a few hours a night. This one is one to remember. I thought I was close many of times only to be outdone by the man behind the scene. He was outstanding this year. Last year I have to admit I had no clue where the rock was. I was in Henderson, the Speedway, and Downtown. Only to find out it was in my backyard, a half mile from my house. Duh!!!!!

Ok back to this year. I first started my journey in Henderson again and was there for about a week and finally discovered it wasn't there by the handwritten clue ( A place they call home ). I still don't know why that clue was hand written, but oh well, maybe he was saying get the heck out of Hooterville Dummy!!! Then I realized we were at I-15 and St. Rose and the west side opened up. Rubbing my hands back and forth I was like sweet maybe he hid it in the Northwest again. After days at Lone Mtn. and Far Hills I gave up on those places as there was not enough desert. On Monday I ended up at Calico Basin because I was stuck at 215 and Summerlin Pkwy. and couldn't figure out which way to turn so I went to Charleston to try and find something out there. I discovered the water, water every sign and figured I was totally in the right spot only to be outdone again as many rocks were overturned. I was like this guy is good.

In the back of my mind I was thinking its in the Southwest, because I researched the Creosote Bush and it told me go to the SW. After a couple of days of the Planes clue I knew it was out there somewhere I could not lead myself out far enough to find it. On Wed. night I had figured out many of the clues and was gonna head to Cactus and Quartehorse after I researched the quarters. Boy was I too late on that idea.

Thursday morning had too much work to do and couldn't make it out there only too find out at lunch time it had been found the night before.  Oh well there is always next year!!!!

Again thanks for all the memories and will be looking forward to next year!!

"I would like to say thanks to KKLZ 96.3 for putting on the JBR this year again, and Miz Lola's for the $10,000.00 and Michael E. Minden Jewelers for the Diamond Ring. Also I would like to thank DeCall Thomas, for putting up the web site so everyone could have the clues, I know it's hard if you miss a clue or a bonus, I would have been lost if it had not been for DeCall putting up the clues like he did. This was a Unofficial fan web site for the Jingle Bell Rock Contest, listeners that had missed a clue, it would have been hard if you missed a clue and could not get it, so for that my hats off to DeCall for having the site. I did meet him on the hunt this year out in Henderson around the NS collage on a very cold day, but had lots of fun looking for the JBR. Also I met other people looking for the JBR and hope to see them next year. I hope that some year that he finds the JBR and we can all be happy that he did. Also help support the site by checking out the sponsors and his web site. And to everyone on the chat line, it was great talking to everyone, and to all of you that said you had the JBR, well I hope next year you do have it. Thank You very much for the site again this year DeCall, see you next year.

From Vardell

"Congratulations to Brian of Las Vegas who found the jingle bell rock at El capitan and cactus over a mound of dirt.. south west side of Las Vegas.. me and my daughter had a lot of fun looking for it. I was right to think El capitan was the big enchilada in the clues, but I should of stayed the course. Thinking that the sign at Santa fa station enchiladas for 7.99 was the obvious was a mistake. Also the clues about flying should of caught my attention as I listen to my scanner and here traffic control call aircraft CACTUS.. with the clues talking about hills and silver I was sure we would find it at centennial hills parkway where we would see the Santa fa station sign. We had a great time me and my 6 year old daughter. Memories we will always have together we still win.. thanks KKLZ and I would advise anyone to try to find the elusive jingle bell rock with there family and friends it really is a bonding experience. Thanks and MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!"

Jingle Bell Rock Clues

Here you can see some of the EDGES and the correct shape and size of the rock. This is probably the best clue you can get. The color (on the other side) probably matches Vegas dirt, relatively close to his hand color. They may change it to a different color, you never know. What does it look like on the other side?? We'd all like to know, you'll just have to use your imagination. You can buy one at the hardware store if you are crazy weird out of your mind. Trust me, if you actually set your eyes on this baby, you'll know it. Also, it doesn't look like the rock is in two pieces this time. In years past we have seen two pieces, the big one out there somewhere and the little one to match up. Like a key to a lock
