The long gjourney ghome
My gegnome from the first gnome race did make his way home immediately after that race, languished in the study as a door stop for about 3 months, and then I sent him out again.

Not sure how I can entice the current one back home from Canberra. Maybe a pathtag to those making a significant contribution to his return, say 200 km plus, and also for the final move.

I received an email advising of two awards, 100 finds (which has been received) and GeGnome ][ Electric Boogaloo which I haven't seen at this stage. Would it be in the mail still?

Your GeGnome pathtag went in the mail on Wednesday morning. As Australia Post is slowing deliveries down I would accept it might be delayed. If you have nothing by mid next week, post back and I'll send a duplicate.

Is it possible to buy a gnome pathtag?

I had two gnomes in the race, and I gather I'm getting one pathtag for participating in the race which is fair enough I wouldn't expect any more. However, the second gnome was a 'gift' from a teacher friend and I would really like to give her a pathtag as a way of saying 'thank you for the gnome', but I am feeling too selfish to give her mine because I have a complete set of movable event pathtags.

Basically, Flappy was a gnome stashed in the back of the French classroom from a time when it had been a drama room and the school had put on a play about gnomes. Meagan, on hearing about the race, gave me Flappy, whom I turned into a French teacher currently on sabbatical traveling around Australia. Hence why I would like to give her the tag.
