AustnTiger (7:40:07 PM): doh
Kipley Fiebig (7:40:09 PM): The rules say, if you find another checkpoint that fits all the parameters of the clue, then it can pass as the checkpoint, if a protest is sucessfully filed. So, all on new ground here.
pitleets (7:40:21 PM): Depends on how it was worded...if it said go find a right shoe, and they didn't specify a red one, a blue shoe would still count
pitleets (7:40:38 PM): May the force be with us....
Downstairs58 (7:41:05 PM): Everyone please send J & M very good vibes!
