Cow Patty Bingo is a unique fundraiser played at many county fairs and rodeos in Texas. A cow is turned loose in a fenced-in area which has been marked off in numbered squares, with chances on each square sold ahead of time. The cow determines the winner by making the first "deposit" on one of the squares. One place you can play is at the Fall Festival in Eden, Texas, and you can find this microbox at Lee Pfluger Park.

Directions:
Take Hwy 87 west to the edge of Eden, then turn left (south) into Lee Pfluger Park. Drive past the cow pen on the left to the picnic area behind it and park.

Clues:
Walk south through the picnic area about 75 yards to the fence behind the swings. Turn right and follow the fence until it meets another fence heading to the right (north). Turn around and walk back the way you came for 9 steps and look for 2 stumps next to the fence. The camo microbox is between the stumps under a rock and leaves. Please re-cover well and be discreet.
