Welcome to the Frederick Puzzler's Corner!
at it’s NEW LOCATION
This is a monthly event to encourage puzzle solving in the geocaching community - all are welcome.
September 3rd is National Welsh Rarebit Day
Today is National Welsh Rarebit Day. It is also known as Welsh Rabbit. If you’re like me, you may at one point in your life have thought this was a dish made with rabbit. But quite to the contrary, meat isn’t typically part of it. Rather, it’s a cousin of cheese on toast, made with a savory cheese sauce, containing ale and/or other various ingredients. But where did the name come from? No one truly knows. If you want to make some variations of Welsh “Rabbit”, there’s Scotch Rabbit, English Rabbit, Buck Rabbit (with an egg on top), Blushing Bunny (rarebit blended with tomato or tomato soup), and Le Welsh. Other than the cheese being more saucy than solid and a bit savory, it sounds like a good grilled cheese to me!
And now, for the usual spiel…
This event is open to all geocachers, 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 though, so please leave your pets at home - we want everyone to leave with the brains they brought.
This event is an unstructured think-tank type assembly. You can collaborate on the latest tantalizing quizzler on your radar. Much of the learning comes from working with others to solve a targeted teaser, and there may be a short tutorial thrown in once in a while. You don't have to work on puzzles to enjoy this; there are always good stories to be heard and told. 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, flight plans, Enigma machine, abacus, scratch paper (don’t forget your writing instrument) - you never know who, or what, will show up, and from whom you can gain an advantage. Maybe you’ve recently cracked a tough one and want to see others’ wheels spinning - 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 so others can prepare to help.
