Monthly Licking Area Meet & Greets resume

Following last year’s successful experimentation with holding monthly meet & greets in the Licking County area, the tradition is continuing!

The first event of 2013 will be held Thursday, March 28th from 6:30-9:00pm at the East West Restaurant in Heath, Ohio:

Licking Area Meet-n-Greet Year 2:Electric Boogaloo
GC4784J

Same cachers / same great taste… come gather for some conversation, caterwauling, and crab rangoon! We’re trying out the last Thursday of each month for a while.

Nothing fancy, just a chance to get together and have fun, share stories, trade trackables, give hints (?), or maybe group-attack a puzzle or two!

ALL are welcome – young and old, caching newbies and seasoned veterans alike.

This restaurant offers both a Chinese and American menu, with many choices of both (and a buffet).

HOPE TO SEE EVERYONE THERE!

Have questions about geocaching? Want to introduce someone new to the sport? Or maybe you’re familiar with Geocaching and you’d like to help answer questions that new cachers may have…

Each event will be in a different spot at a different time.  What this means is you have probably the only chance in your caching career to snag a dozen events on a single day!  We’ll start at 8am and wrap things up at 1opm.  Come join us for a long day of wondrous celebration.  Take a vacation day.  Call in sick.  Whatever it takes.  Or come by for just one to get the souvenir from Groundspeak.  Either way works!

Caching Conundrum November 2012 Results

A massive, room-filling crowd gathered for the final Caching Conundrum event before the 2012 Playoffs.  The points multiplier was a 2.0 for the night, so players had the potential to improve their positions heading into December’s Championship event.  The task this month was a comprehensive exam.  Players were tasked with solving a huge amount of puzzle, including a crossword, sudoku, a logic puzzle, kakuro, trivia, a cipher, IQ test questions, and cryptograms.  Even with extended time, the test was designed to be a giant task to finish.  In the end, the players proved they have a wide array of knowledge and puzzling skill.  Below are the standings:
