Tangleboxing Season Is Here

June is bustin’ out all over again. And that means that school will be out (eventually) and time to round up the kids and hit the road – even if it’s just for a quick drive around the county.

The 2017 Tangleboxing season begins on June 16th and continues through September 25th. That should give you plenty of time to get outdoors and enjoy the beauty of our local area. Our family attempts to complete the Tanglebox Passport every year and many times we’ve succeeded. We were off to our best ever start last year, but somehow managed to get too busy towards the end of summer to finish. We did however, discover a new park in Newberg that we had no idea existed and that’s one of the benefits of the program.

If you’re new to Tangleboxing, here’s the scoop:
Tangleboxing is an outdoor summertime treasure hunt! Follow the clues, find the boxes, record your discoveries and compete for prizes! Beginning each June, Tangleboxes are hidden in local area parks and waiting to be discovered. Each box contains a rubber stamp, ink pad and guest book. To find each Tanglebox, participants need to purchase an Official Passport to your Yamhill County Parks and follow clues provided in the passport, to the Tanglebox at each participating park. Once participants find each Tanglebox, they will use the stamp in the Tanglebox to record their discovery. Participants who find all the Tangleboxes will be eligible for a prize drawing in September. Tangleboxing is great for all ages and an excellent opportunity for families to get outside and visit a wide selection of parks.

Passports are available now at Incahoots for $5 each.
