Sending a postcard via the Sneakernet
Mailboxes around the site will have a box containing postcards. Alternatively, pick up a postcard from the Sneakernet desk in the Info Tent.
Clearly address your postcard with who/where you would like it delivered to. If you know their DECT number, village, etc, please include it!
Delivering for the Sneakernet
If you want to try delivering a couple of postcards, head to the Information Desk and grab a couple of postcards from the outbox. From there, walk around the camp to deliver them!
Can't find the person or place? Not a problem, return the postcard to the undelivered box. If you're up for a challenge, try to deliver postcards from that box.
