Putting the Pieces Together

What’s this? The original Stone Bank puzzle back in action?

Indeed. And “in action” a long, long way from Bottineau. This old Stone Bank puzzle is now entertaining folks (and perhaps puzzling them) at a community center near Phoenix!

Thanks to our friend Jane for sending the photos. We love it when folks near and far offer a hand in fixing the Stone Bank, even if it is only putting the puzzle together.

Want to help? Your contribution will help us rebuild the back 20 feet of the building!

Be like Jane! She recently sent a contribution using the PayPal link on this page. Our mailing address is also in the right column. We would love to hear from you.

Thanks for reading the Stone Bank Blog!

The Stone Bank puzzle is quite different from the competitors for “fixing” in the puzzle closet.

Dear Stone Bank Folowers: How about a couple of guesses about the Stone Bank Puzzle! Simple guess will do. It took longer than a week for the Amtrak passengers at the Rugby, ND station to fix it — but how much longer?

AND NOW THERE IS A PRIZE! Three of the Stone Bank wristbands. All the rage! So post your guess in the comments section.

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.
