Even the blackest cloud can have a silver lining.That silver lining oftentimes manifests itself in the way of improved plate appearances. If the 5 rotisserie hitting classes are "fantasy gold," then PAs are plainly our "silver," specially in deeper leagues -- 10-plus-group AL- or NL-only formats. We might not get credit for them in our standings, but their impact is felt.
Box 1: Many thanks to Rosetta's Kitchen, home of "Adrienne's Box." It's an alternative-community cafe we scouted out our first night in Asheville, NC. We showed up after dark. We were cold and very hungry. A local pointed us in the direction of Rosetta's Kitchen as a place to warm up and get quality, local, fresh food. While enjoying our (very reasonably priced) hot meal it was obvious to us both that this was a perfect home for a Lightfoot Box.
Friends and Fellow Deputies -
My friend and I are currently doing a cross-country Lightfoot Tour in the Southern U.S. We are setting up boxes in each city we visit along the way and promoting and holding FREE Letter Writing Workshops -offering information about Lightfoot and letter writing/making for people as we create, decorate and set up the new letter boxes on-site in their chosen locations. We just finished a fun day at Rosetta's Kitchen in Asheville, NC setting up "Adrienne's Box." There's already letters inside and we now have one in tow with us! Thank you Adrienne for your beautiful Lightfoot Box and welcome to the team!
Next stop - Athens, GA If you have a recommendation for a box in a southern US city, please contact me! Thanks!
I have been sitting on lightfootpost.org for three years now, actually showing this website has been broken for long and the domain expires end of October.
I'm happy to sponsor domain fees for a while if someone wants to take it over for Lightfoot Post but I don't want it registered to me anymore, given that the artificial divide has been rather useless in the past.
If you could imagine taking it over, please get in touch!
Just a couple images for anyone to use for promoting Lightfoot, making boxes, or writing letters.
You can use a Paint-style program to fill in the blank templates with whatever color scheme you want, or just use the ones I've colored.
Then you can print them out however big you want, and use them however you want!
PS. I've just replaced the older versions with properly cropped jpegs, and added one other black&white template. Enjoy!
Wow, Lightfoot was such a hit at the Free Tea Pavilion at Rootstalk Festival in Oregon, USA. We set up a super comfortable space for people to connect, sip tea, and relax during this intense festival of workshops, educators, music, plant walks, etc.
We set it up so that people could sit on cushions around a table on the ground stocked with letter writing supplies like paper and pens, envelopes, all kinds of stamps, etc. We even had a huge chalkboard that people could post where they could bring letters, or where letters needed to go. It was sweet!
I guess with so many awesome people coming together in one place, Lightfoot was bound for glory. Dozens of letters were written over the weekend, and many new Lightfoot deputies took letters on towards their destinations. At the end of the festival, those letters that were left we divvied up: many west coast letters went with me, east coast letters went with Ally, etc.

Hey All! Check out the new Lightfoot Postmark Stamps - custom made and donated to the project by a woman named Anna-Mae from villageimpressions.com . She made about 10 of each design. I have some, as does Lily Luck.
To get yours, let me know which of the three you want and I can send them off to you (Lightfoot if you don't mind the wait, otherwise via regular post).
Email me at: email@example.com
