Welcome to the Frederick Puzzler's Corner!
This is a monthly event to encourage puzzle solving in the geocaching community - all are welcome.
December 3rd is Make A Gift Day
Today is informally celebrated as Make A Gift Day. Gifts are a way for people to show love and concern for the recipients. They may also be presented as a token of respect or as a sign of forgiveness. In many cultures, gifts are given out during festivals, weddings and other major life events like birthdays, retirements and housewarmings. Remember making things at school to bring home to your family? As adults, we’re more likely to make something more refined than a finger painting for our mothers. With the holidays nearly upon us, it’s a great time to get your materials, tools and skills together to make that special something for a special someone.
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.
