Word Swap


This one is just for fun! Are you able to spot the 20 silly swaps that staff came up with?

Pumpkin Hunting


And last but not least is the return of the pumpkin hunt! Ghost has hidden 13 pumpkins around the site, if you hover over the pumpkin it will reveal a letter to you! Find all 13 and unscramble the secret phrase before October 31st and you will win a prize (send a message to the SoW account with the unscrambled phrase to claim). Ghost will make you an animated avatar with a halloween tag line as a reward.

Please note, it is a good idea to double check where your letters are coming from as sometimes the same text appears multiple times on the site from the same code. For example there are multiple ways of getting to certain library articles, territory descriptions, gossip wall, calendar etc. The letter only counts once from each location, even if you found it in multiple different ways.

End of the BWP


Thank you to all who participated in the BWP this summer! BC has come off of their state of emergency and the NWT is expected to follow suit this week. In turn RoW's smoke problem will also be resolving, though you are free to still mention it in threads and play it out for the next few weeks as things slowly get better.

As a reminder, Ghost will be matching donations up to $150 and you have until October 15th to donate and send a screenshot to a staff member to be eligible for the donation matching.
