***MISSING*** Will be recarved and replanted in a new location***

Miss Ladybug is hiding in a park in Champaign. This park used to have a fire truck for children to play on when I was a kid (about 20 years ago... no idea when it was removed). If you're from the area, you might know the park right off the bat. If not, visit www.champaignparkdistrict.com and find the park that was obtained in 1918 & donated by someone w/the same name as the park! There's also a really tasty local ice cream shop nearby this park!

Once you've figured out the location, park at the main pavillion and travel out the south side & down the stairs. From here, travel to the lamp post that is at approximately 240 degrees. Depending on how full the foliage is, the actual lamp may be hidden from your view, but it's there! From this lamp post, use your compass to find out how many degrees it would be to home plate. Divide this number by 6, and remember it for now. Travel to the fence directly behind home plate. From here, walk to the south the amount of steps of the number you remembered. From this location, take a bearing of 60 degrees and you will find Miss Ladybug hiding in that location.

Please be discrete. This is a busy park at certain times of the year. Miss Ladybug is near a playground, but the point of retrieval should be hidden from the playground's view. Please be sure to wedge the box in well when you're finished! There is a special prize in this box for the first finder!
