    __________________________________________________ _

    1. HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS PROMOTION (the "Treasure Hunt"): Obtain a copy of the book A Treasure's Trove by Michael Stadther (the "Book"). Contained within the Book are clues to twelve puzzles that, when solved, will direct you to the location of twelve (12) hidden tokens. Each token is hidden in a different location. The tokens can each be redeemed for a valuable jewel or amulet selected by Sponsor. The tokens will be located in public places within the continental United States. The first person to locate a token, using their intellect and skill, who satisfies the eligibility requirements and follows the redemption instructions set forth below, will, upon verification, receive the jewel or amulet signified by the token. The potential finder must submit the claim personally; submissions through agents or third parties are not valid. The Book was first available to the public on November 15, 2004. The Treasure Hunt will run until all tokens are found and finders verified, or until December 31, 2007 (the "End Date"), whichever is sooner.

    2. ELIGIBILITY: Open to legal residents of the 50 United States, including the District of Columbia, except residents of the states of MD, ND and VT. Finders may be required to execute an affidavit swearing to compliance with these eligibility requirements. Employees of Sponsor, their immediate family and household members (related or not), and agents participating in the creation of this Treasure Hunt, are not eligible to enter.


    3. DETAILS: Solutions to each of the twelve puzzles in the Book have been recorded and are maintained in a secure location. Solutions will be revealed after the End Date, either on the web site or in a subsequent publication. You can learn more about the Book and the Treasure Hunt by going to the web site at www.atreasurestrove.com.

    4. PARTICIPANT CONDUCT: Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any Participant who (a) tampers with the entry process or the participation in, or operation of, the Treasure Hunt; (b) violates these rules; or (c) acts in a disruptive manner with the intent to annoy, abuse, threaten, or harass any other Participant or person. Tokens are located in public places, and are not in dangerous locations such as under water, on ledges, mountain tops or in caves. Destruction or destroying any real or personal property is not necessary in order to find the tokens or otherwise participate. Sponsor expressly forbids any such conduct. By participating, you agree to be bound by these Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor, which shall be final in all respects on all aspects pertaining to the Treasure Hunt. Sponsor shall have complete discretion to interpret these Official Rules and any other aspect of the Treasure Hunt, and expressly reserves the right to refuse to award the prize to anyone who in Sponsor's discretion is in breach of these Official Rules or otherwise fails satisfactorily to establish their eligibility to win.

    5. REDEMPTION INSTRUCTIONS: If you find a token before the End Date, you must initiate redemption within 30 days of finding it. If Sponsor discovers a token missing from its hiding place for over 30 days, the token cannot be redeemed. Upon finding a token, within 30 days, follow the instructions on the back of the token. You may be asked to provide your solutions to the puzzles which led you to the location where you found the token, and execute an affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release (where legal). If your responses are verified as accurate, and it is determined that you used your intellect and skill in order to solve the Treasure Hunt, provided you are in all other respects eligible to receive a prize, you will be declared a finder. You will be asked to fax a photocopy of the token along with your name, address and all other contact information. You must also send in the token as directed. You should keep copies of all correspondence and copies of the token for your records. Additional verification requirements and redemption instructions may be required. Finders must return the affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release within twenty one (21) days of first attempted notification of verification. For finders who are younger than the age of majority, prize will be awarded in the finder's name to his/her parent or legal guardian, and affidavits and releases must be signed by the finder's parent or legal guardian. Finders must give Sponsor permission to publicize finder's name and hometown as a condition of receiving the prize, unless prohibited by law. Finders may also be required to use their names and submissions in advertising and marketing materials in all media in perpetuity, and may be required to participate in publicity events, except where prohibited by law. Sponsor may not confirm verification of finders until after End Date, and will not transfer actual possession of the jewels until after the End Date. The jewels will be on display until the End Date, after which time verified finders may take possession of them.


    6. COLLABORATIONS: If you have collaborated in your efforts with other persons, each of the finding participants must comply with all of the foregoing requirements and execute all of the required documents. Collaborators must also release Sponsor from any liability in connection with their agreement among one another, and if Sponsor incurs any costs or expenses, including legal expenses, in connection with collaborators' agreement, all collaborators agree to reimburse Sponsor for any and all such costs and expenses jointly and severally.

    7. PRIZES: Twelve (12) jewels will be available in the Treasure Hunt:

    Jewels Appraised Value Cash Substitution Value

    Finders may elect to receive instead of the jewel the cash substitution value listed above. All federal, state and local taxes associated with the receipt or use of any prize and participation in the Treasure Hunt are the sole responsibility of the finder. IRS regulations require Sponsor to issue a 1099 tax form to anyone receiving any of the prizes available in this contest.

    8. GENERAL: All materials and submissions to Sponsor, including the tokens, become property of the Sponsor and will not be returned. Sponsor accepts no liability for submissions, correspondence or attempted redemptions that are late, lost, or otherwise misdirected, or not submitted in accordance with these Official Rules. If any tokens are not located by the End Date, or if no verified winner claims a token or a prize, Sponsor will donate the cash substitution to a charity of Sponsor's choice. No transfer or substitution of prizes permitted by winners, except as indicated herein. Sponsor has made extensive efforts and taken reasonable steps to ensure that the tokens remain where they are hidden until found by participants in this Contest. Sponsor will also, at various times during the promotion period, attempt to confirm that unclaimed tokens remain in their respective hidden locations. However, tokens may be moved by forces, including human intervention (intentional and unintentional) as well as force majeure events, over which Sponsor has no control. Sponsor disclaims all liability if, due to forces outside its control, a token is moved from its location. Sponsor may or may not, in its discretion, replace a token that has been moved but remains unclaimed with a new token.

    9. ADDITIONAL LIMITATIONS: By entering, participants (a) agree to be bound by the official rules and the decisions of the Sponsor which are final and binding in all respects; (b) agree to release Sponsor and agents from any and all liability, loss, damage or injury resulting from participation in this Treasure Hunt and searching for the tokens, as well as awarding, receipt, possession use and/or misuse of any prize awarded herein and acknowledge that Sponsor, and agents have neither made nor are in any manner responsible or liable for any warranty, representation, or guarantee, express or implied, in fact or in law, relative to any prize including, but not limited to, its quality, mechanical condition or fitness for a particular purpose; and (c) consent to use of his/her name, photograph and/or likeness for advertising and promotional purposes without additional compensation, unless prohibited by law.

    The hunt continues! ...sorry for doubting those that said it would.

    So Clue #4 will be for the Black Diamond.
    1) Will the book be used?
    2) Does Clue #3 has any relevance to the Black Diamond or was that for Pook?

    Can wait to see the next clue...hours away!

    This is going to be quite a race, call in sick next week.
    OK everyone, no pushing or shoving, "On your mark, get set, GO!!!"
