Stone Bank Puzzler

Posted in Promotions/Contests tagged , , , , , at 11:38 pm by stonebankblog

It seemed like a great idea. A puzzle!

Such symbolism. Such a challenge. Such fun.

And such a great way to raise money for the Stone Bank project.

Only five were made — and we donated one to the Amtrak station in Rugby, N.D., where there is always a puzzle in the waiting area. (The station master even keeps track of how long each puzzle takes to finish.)

Here’s how it looked after Week 1.

Puzzle of the Stone Bank-Bottineau

It only has 252 pieces, but it's a tough puzzle. The image is of one of the bank's arched windows with the words "Stone Bank" and our slogan "Preservation Rocks" along with
our Web address http://www.StoneBank.org.

Comment on this blog post about how long it will take for the Amtrak waiting room puzzle to be completed. (No cheating.)

Oh, and No Prize. Just the fun of guessing.

Take into your calculation that the train has been running on time, so passengers don’t have a long stay in the waiting room. Hmmm.

    My guess is that the last piece of the puzzle will be put in place on Dec. 22 by someone waiting for a train to take them to grandmother’s for Christmas.
