Bonzo Block


A Legendary Treasure Hunt in the Great Land.
Can You find the Bonzo Block?

Once upon a rainy day, I went out with friends to play
Through many a sweet and catchy song.
While we laughed lightly hearted, the party was only getting started
As all around the critters darted, darted all day long
Going fast we ran and danced kickin’ it easy all day long
Going, Going……Gong

Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter,
In there stepped a stately raven of the saintly days of yore.
Not the least obeisance made he; not a minute stopped or stayed he;
But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door –
Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door –
Perched, and sat, and nothing more.

soooo-eee! Dawson, Jackson & Ketch found the Bonzo Block between the Basketball Court, the Track and the Composter, at the school!

They’re stoked- got $50 and shtümpa hoody-
But, the darn thing got lost again already!
Keep your eyes peeled for the next clue!

I’ve still not been found
So look round and round
And go out of bounds
On this local compound
A doodle-a-dolly
A goal and a folly
You’ll need your wits
On and off the court
Being tall will help
But you can play
If your short
So chin up and buck up
And go find it sport

Hey all you bonzos- the summer is here!
I’ve been hiding so long, I’m beginning to fear-
the cycle of life might make moss of me rear!
But gosh-golly-willackers- everything grows,
from the hair on yer heads, to some soggy green toes.
So slack not all you bonzos- I will be found!
The question is; ‘who will reign champion this round?’

What you Know:
It’s wood, It’s in Haines

Reward:

$50 and a Shtumpa Hooded Sweatshirt

so… what are you waiting for? Get shtümpa’d and go get it!

Fair season is here- go have some fun!
With a jug of Paul’s Beer- You’ve already won.
The red in the roots will bring you close,
and with a little perseverance you’ll rightfully boast-
“I found the bonzo, and $50 to boot!”
Summer in Haines; we can all agree- it’s a hoot!

p.s. -Don’t forget your compass!

The path to glory is surprisingly short-
Both the young & the old can excel at this sport.
Many are close, there’s no time to spare.
I’ll give you one hint, I’m not at the fair.
So seek out the fort where boys can be monkeys
& girls still kick butt in this class with no flunkies!

Keep up the hunt you bonzos-
Fortune favors the bold.
Make it quick though, I’m growing mold.
Stuck between a plank & a board,
soggily I contemplate the fjord.
Look to the west… you figure the rest!

The tides have turned all you Bonzos.
You’re not alone in this, hurry-
Fortuitous fools won’t be thwarted by flurries.
I’ve been stepped on and slapped at, my steel turned to rust.
Look high and look low-
It’s Bonzo or bust!
