JBR Kidnapped?!?

Audio 1

96.3 KKLZ and the Silverton Casino Hotel have issued a $10,000 reward for the return of Mike & Carla's world famous Jingle Bell Rock. The ROCKNAPPER sent us this recording:
(Creepy Voice)
"We will hide the Jingle Bell Rock on Friday December 13th. We will give you varied clues each weekday on 96.3 KKLZ. You will also find a written clue posted at the Silverton Rewards Club each weekday. That is all for now."

Audio 2

96.3 KKLZ and the Silverton Casino Hotel are still offering a $10,000 reward for the return of Mike & Carla's world famous Jingle Bell Rock. The ROCKNAPPERS have contacted us again:
(Creepy Voice)
"The Jingle Bell Rock has not been harmed. You can begin searching for it on Friday, December 13th. Do not contact the police. Keep track of the clues running each weekday on 96.3 KKLZ and at the Silverton Reward Club. That is all for now."

96.3 KKLZ and the Silverton Casino Hotel are still offering a $10,000 reward for the return of Mike & Carla's world famous Jingle Bell Rock. Here is the latest from the ROCKNAPPERS:
(Creepy Voice)
"We are no longer in posession of the Jingle Bell Rock, but we are the only ones who know where it is hidden. Do not contact the authorities. Your only chance of finding the rock are to gather all the clues revealed each weekday on 96.3 KKLZ and at the Silverton's Rewards Club. That is all for now."

(just for fun, so don't be weird about it Jingle Nuts)

Newbies start HERE
Like I was saying, the RULES tell us that the CLUES START DECEMBER 2ND (details below), the radio clues are 8am, 1pm, and 6pm (more like, 8:10 etc. and only on weekdays), and the daily bonus clues are at the Silverton. Normally we can expect the bonus clue to be available around 8 or 9 a.m. at the Silverton rewards club. All 5 PUZZLE PIECES have been announced.(details below), AND "You can start looking for the 'JBR' on Friday, December 13th ."
Anyone could guess that the station probably doesn't want to meet a bunch of searchers when the rock arrives (after last year's near debacle), so as Mike O'Brien told us at the kickoff party, there is definitely some kind of twist to the contest this year. We don't know what this "TWIST" will be, but we can't wait to find out. Hopefully kklz learned not to take a picture of the search area... too many crazed Jingle Nuts playing this game, and just the kind of challenge we love. Good Luck JBR hunters 2019.

sad news

RIP Yvonne and Frank

RIP Yvonne. Sorry to say we lost one of our searchers this year. Yvonne was a tough and determined searcher for many years. I also saw her do many acts of service for others. She was funny of course, and demanding and strong willed too. Even more heartbreaking, her husband Frank also died a few weeks later after a short battle with cancer. Frank was a valued friend of mine. Nicest guy for sure. We'll miss you Frank and Yvonne.

RIP YvonneYvonne and DeCall
RIP FrankFrank and Stephen
