That's good! Don't need two mysteriously disappearing flags in one day.

We had a disappearing flag? I wonder what was up with that.

#9 (obvious feature - the only boulder around in open woods) was MIA when I arrived. I didn't look long (clearly the right feature, good visibility in the woods, no other similar features nearby to check for a misplaced flag) but happened to notice one of the "event in progress, do not remove" tags on the ground by the boulder as I left. Doug searched a bit and discovered the stake and epunch box scattered in different directions; I'm not sure the flag was ever found.

I came in after and put the tag on top of the boulder to make it clear to anyone else that yes, this was the right place. Hearing the description, either some animal got caught up with the flag, or a person did it... Glad we got the electronics.
