Welcome to the Frederick Puzzler’s Corner’s Creation Celebration!
This monthly event encourages puzzle solving in the geocaching community, and all are welcome.
April 2nd - it’s time to celebrate Cache Creation!
This month we have a unique opportunity to set the puzzles aside and talk about our favorite, most creative caches instead, and earn a souvenir for doing so!
What is the most creative puzzle you’ve solved?
Where in the world is the most creative container you’ve found?
Will you dare tell us of something creative you are currently putting together?
There are many very creative cache hiders in our area, yet we all travel for various purposes and have likely encountered something completely different outside our home region. What was most memorable to you?
Maybe you’re just trying to get inside the head of a hider to figure out how in the world they came up with their idea. Sure, good luck with that!!
Who knows what kind of ideas might be spurred for unique new cache placements. Let’s have some fun and give kudos to all those hiders who come up with the really cool stuff!
I am also honored to say that this is the start of the 5th year of this event - I can think of no better way to spend an evening abusing, uh, using my brain than with fellow puzzle connoisseurs!
Oh, and if anyone cares, this is also National Peanut Butter and Jelly day. Yum!!
If you insist on keeping your nose to the grindstone (ha-ha!), here’s the usual spiel…
This event is open to all cachers, no matter what your statistics say or whether you even like puzzles! Newbies and addicts, socialites and lone wolves, mark you calendar.
If you've got a puzzle or mystery cache that's currently got you stumped and you'd like to pick some brains, this event is for you! Zombies are not welcome here though, so please leave your pets at home - we want everyone to leave with the brains they brought.
This event has evolved to a think-tank type gathering, with everyone collaborating on the latest tantalizing quizzler on their radar. Generally, the learning seems to come from working with others to solve a targeted teaser, but there may be a short tutorial thrown in once in a while. You don't have to work on puzzles to enjoy this, as there are plenty of stories to be heard. However, you'll have plenty of others to commiserate with, and you might discover someone has solved a puzzle using a similar technique. We continue to see successes and progress at each gathering.
For the puzzle junkies, bring your puzzle paraphernalia - flagged caches, laptop or tablet (Wi-Fi is available), theories, library card, worksheets, (sp)eye glasses, HTML color code charts, Enigma machine, abacus, scratch paper (don’t forget your writing instrument) - you never know who, or what, will show up, from which you can gain an advantage. Maybe you’ve recently cracked a tough one and want to see the wheels spinning while others tackle it - that can be loads of fun! Yes, we have regular head-slapping moments!
If you have a specific puzzle or puzzling topic you'd like help with, feel free to make note of it in your Will Attend log.
