Geocache Description:

"Frick and Frack", has become an English slang term used in two ways. One is to refer to two people so closely associated as to be indistinguishable; the other way is as a term of derision for any two people, on par with calling one person a "Bozo" or three people "Stooges."


Half of Frick and Frack:

Frick was part of the famous Frick and Frack comedy skating act. His real name was Werner Groebli and Frack's real name was Hans-Rudi Mauch. Both were from Switzerland. The pair used the name "Frick and Frack" originally because they did not want to embarrass their families with their comedy antics on the ice since theatrical comedy was considered low class.

They began performing together in the early 1930s. Their original goal was to make fun of professional figure skaters. They dressed in traditional alpine clothing and used ballet and dance in their performances. They skated together until 1953.

The photo below is that of Werner Groebli, below, played Frick to his skating partner Hans-Rudi Mauch's Frack.

Frick and Frack, (the caches) are seperated by MAJOR Ave, just south of Komensky, MN, but that should not stop the cachers on the hunt. Parking for the trailhead is right off Major Ave.
