Third Annual Glass Quest in coming up February 17th-26th in Stanwood and Camano Island, sponsored by Windermere Real Estate, Klesick Family Farms, Stanwood & Camano Island Chambers of Commerce, The Crab Cracker and other local businesses. The hand blown, limited edition, glass balls by artist Mark Ellinger.
My dad and I will be hosting an Open House at 770 Maple Heights Road on Camano Island with a “clue ball” hidden somewhere on the property. The Open House will be only one day during this event, Sunday, February 19th, from 1:00-4:00pm. There are a number of open houses this day only that will also have clue balls hidden for questors to find! For more details, you can find information on these open houses at any of the three Windermere offices (Terry’s Corner office, Country Club office, or our Stanwood office).
“The Great Northwest Glass Quest
February 17 through 26, 2012
You’re on your way to participating in a new treasure hunt in the Pacific Northwest. This is your opportunity to search for and find “snowballs” handmade by Mark Ellinger, world-renowned, hand-blown glass artist.
The Great Northwest Glass Quest is being held in the tradition of Lincoln City, Oregon’s “Finders Keepers” and Jekyll Island’s “Island Treasures”. ‘Clueballs’ will be hidden at a variety of host businesses and in community sites around the Stanwood-Camano area.
Find the clueball and return it to the location identified inside for an authentic limited edition glass snowball. The Event Booklets identifying where the clueballs are hidden will be available at both the Stanwood and Camano chamber offices and at both Gallery by the Bay in Stanwood and Seagrass Gallery on Camano Island starting February 17th. With booklet in hand you will be ready to start the QUEST!
PLUS when you go to businesses that are participating in The Great Northwest Glass Quest but do not find a clueball, take along your program booklet and the business will stamp your booklet. Five stamps from five different host businesses will allow you to enter the drawing to be held in March 2012 or purchase a snowball at the two galleries at a reduced price. You do not need to be present to win the drawing.” (Excerpt from www.thegreatnwglassquest.com)
