Put your Geo-Detective hat on for the Clue Game. Can you successfully channel your inner Hercule Poirot or Miss Jane Marple to solve the "Mystery of the Mill Creek Muggle"? You'll have most of the day to work on the mystery, while mingling with other picnic attendees and enjoying the other activities. A special prize will be awarded.
Also, there will be 5 new puzzle caches published one week before the picnic. You'll be able to solve and or find all 5 caches prior to picnic day. Grab a clue from each of these 5 caches and you'll be led to the location of the Picnic Cache which will be published the day of the event.
This year 14 clueless cachers will be heading home with one of 14 creative containers filled with geocaching goods. Everyone will receive an entry ticket when you stop at the registration table. Just put your caching name on the ticket and place it in the ticket container associated with the prize you want to win. In addition, you'll get a ticket for each breakfast meal purchased before the picnic and then throughout the day additional tickets will be available for purchase at $1 per ticket or 6 for $5.
