I found a Marvin Gardens, problem is, it is 139 miles away and the big problem it is in the direct path of Hurricane Delta going through Alabama. Sssoooooo I don't think I will ride up for that one. I did want the prize though.

For those unfamiliar this is what I am referring to:

This is from the Leather Lips monument in Dublin, OH.

Brief story about Leatherlips:
Leatherlips (1732–1810) was a Wyandot Native American leader of the late 18th and early 19th century.

Leatherlips had three Wyandot names. The one most often used was SHA‑TE‑YAH‑RON‑YA but he was sometimes referred to as THA‑TEY‑YAN‑A‑YOH. In later years he was called SOU‑CHA‑ET‑ESS, which means "Long Gray Hair". He was of the Porcupine Clan as was his great friend, Chief Tarhe, and he was related to Roundhead, Splitlog and Battise, noted Wyandot warriors of that period.[1]
Wyandots were decimated by disease and a disastrous war with the Five Nations of the Iroquois. Forced out of their homeland near Georgian Bay, they moved to the Ohio country. Leatherlips, an important leader, signed the Treaty of Greenville and encouraged cooperation with white settlers near the end of his life. That policy of accommodating Europeans led to conflict with a movement led by two Shawnee brothers, Tecumseh and Tenskwatawa (The Prophet). Tenskwatawa reacted strongly against Leatherlips and condemned him to death for signing away native lands, and for witchcraft.[2]
In 1810, Leatherlips' brother Roundhead, a fellow Wyandot chief, ordered his execution.[3][4] Leatherlips was condemned to death by other natives for his desire to cooperate with white settlers.[2][4][5] Not only was Leatherlips opposed to Tecumseh's Confederacy against the United States, but he had also sold native land to William Henry Harrison.[6] However, it is widely believed that Leatherlips was executed for exaggerated charges of witchcraft to draw attention away from the true political motives.[3] While it is unknown if Roundhead took direct part in the execution of Leatherlips, he did head the council that called for his death.[5]
Dispatched by Roundhead, six Wyandots traveled to what is now Dublin, Ohio just north of Columbus and announced the death sentence. Although white settlers led by John Sells pleaded for the old chief and attempted to bribe the death squad, the trial and sentencing were swift. After clothing himself in his finest attire, Leatherlips, joined by his executioners, sang the death chant and prayed. Then he was killed by tomahawk.[7]
A monument to Leatherlips and a memorial art sculpture are tourist stops in Dublin today.[8

What happens if someone gets the target and doesn't pick a target? I think Cheese will be back and pick a good target . But do we go back to the last target?

Good question. I see two solutions:

1. Go back to previous
2. Have the "Gate Keeper" aka @Yamaha Pat pick a new one.

I'm just a participant in this hunt that likes stats. No gatekeeper here. My opinions are not that important.
