Can you show me an exact example of this for the Ohio towns?

Maybe just telling you the examples are in a Highway Historical Marker, will give you the info to answer the question.

I have found multiple examples of different nouns (like industrialist) describing an individual embedded in a HHM. My rational says your approving any most in a HHM would carry over to any noun ending in "st" we find in a marker. YRMV!!!

Oh yeah, that's fine.
All historical markers are good and any words that meet the requirements can be counted as a point, even if they are in the body of the text on the marker.

I thought you were describing multiple towns having their "town sign" that list the same word.

I realize that there will be some submissions with very high point totals.

RE: 2018 Grand Tour Questions
So, if a marker had "Oldest Fort in Minnesota" at the top and in the body of the text there were, say, 15 words that ended in st, it would be worth 16 points?

Rules aren't exactly simple, cut and dry this year. Pretty sure I slept through diagramming a sentence and underlining adverbs in school. Publick skule done learnt me good.

Bet we see Chad's old 900-ish score beat this year.

Thinking a little farther down the calendar, do you (Alex), have a preference as to how we name the pic's / files , to make it easier for scoring?

How will you submit a picture of a marker with all it's text while having your bike and the flag in the picture?

You can submit an additional picture with a closeup of the marker.
