    I'm down to 10 potential senders left. 20% of them haven't posted a clue.

    90% of them are from Illinois, Florida, Colorado or Georgia (but I think that is the same percentage of this round).

    My target has still not called me out so even though, if I was my target I would definitely know that I was sending to them by now, I will continue with the clues.

    Hint #1: Not shipping South.
    Hint # 2: Not shipping East
    Hint #3: I am one of the few not shipping to @Joenap419
    Hint #4: A major annual event that was cancelled this year due to the Corona Virus is held less than 20 miles from my target's address
    Hint #5: Airplanes.
    Hint #6: My state's population is larger than my target's state's population
    Hint #7: My beer will land in a different time zone from where it was sent.
    Hint #8: After looking at all of the clues from everybody (including mine) and double checking my spreadsheet, I am pretty sure my target should be able to figure out who He/She is.
    Hint #9: Even though my target should have been able to figure it out, since I have not been called out I will continue to add hints. I have never shipped beer to my target before.
    Hint #10: The event referred to in hint # 4 above has in excess of 75,000 people every year for at least the previous 7 years.
    Hint #11: As of this hint I have given more hints then my target.
    Hint #12: I have never shipped to my target before.

    Just a note, because we've all been there... not everyone keeps a meticulous spreadsheet and follows every clue. Some targets really prefer being surprised - and some will not call you out, even if they do know you're their sender!

    Also, lots of us stay off of BA if we can and don't post/follow a lot of clues - Slack is way easier to follow, and the management isn't overbearing as fuck. :wink:

    Keep up the hints, but don't be disappointed or frustrated if you don't get a call-out!
