how come every year no real effort is made to hide those Easter Eggs and actually make people work for the prizes? With the whole county to choose from, why is every single egg placed in North Cookeville or Tech or Baxter? It's supposed to be a CHALLENGE. Why not make the thing actually challenging?

nothing is ever good enough for some ppl is it? maybe your only finding the easy ones and not looking hard enough for the well hidden ones ;)

no, seven, I knew where each egg was by the second or third clue, pretty much everybody did, that's my point. When you have the entire COUNTY to work with every year, why always confine it to a local cookeville school (including Tech), something to do with the railroad, or someplace so easily recognizable in town? I understand a lot of people have moved here from out-of-town, and it's only fair to make or two or three eggs easier to find for their sakes, but c'mon... that could have been SO much more difficult to figure out.

I did'nt actively participate except in the prize that I actually wanted (though I have won previously), when, of course, the very first clue gave it away for everyone anyway. It's not a new thing or anything, it's the same every year, EVERYBODY knows where the egg is by the first or second clue, that's the POINT, man. Make it actually DIFFICULT for one, make somebody actually have to THINK about it. What the hell's so threatening about that concept? Figuring it out is half the prize itself. Putnam county is small, but it's not THAT small, and people here are'nt ignorant of it's history or geography. Since so many citizens particpate anyway, make SOME of the locations actually a little difficult, that's all I'm saying.

Even though Cookeville is a good sized town, they can only hide the eggs on public property.... Think about that for a second and that makes Cookeville not so big anymore huh? And the easier the egg is to find, wouldnt that make more people participate which in turn makes the event bigger overall? That's probably what they are going for and not to hide a egg no one will find and then no one ever participate again.

At what point in time are you going to stop searching for your $500 or flat-screen t.v.? Besides, it's a COUNTY-WIDE Easter-egg hunt, NOT a "cookeville" Easter-egg hunt. People are'nt going to "not participate."

no, it was'nt, and the only egg (if memory serves me) that was placed outside of North Cookeville) that was found this time was placed in Baxter (with clues that led people there in the first 15 minutes.) That's ridiculous. With the entire county to work with and all the history, tradition, and general common knowledge they have to work with around here (not to mention how creative people can get when there's money on the line), it's a joke to always confine all the eggs into one or two little areas like that. I know they do that every year, but really, that's no excuse.

Ok since I am so wrong.... Here is proof...Go to facebook and type in the search bar Magic 98.5 and it will show you their page with logo on it. All you have to do is click it and look on there wall post from the day after April 5th, and it tells you all the locations the eggs where found..... I am going to copy and paste this list for you nimrod! So quit arguing just to argue, there is no point really: Magic 98.5 32nd Annual County Wide Egg Hunt brought to you by The Technology Store. Here are where the Eggs were hidden if you didn't hear it yesterday: 1. Sycamore Elementary 2. Monterey Library 3. Derryberry Hall at TTU 4. Upperman High School Concert Egg.-- Field at EMS/Election/ Health Dept. Offices 5. Hawkins-Crawford Rd at railroad tracks

There were eggs hidden in Monterey last year. Is that far enough away for you?
