I was asked on the weekend if anyone had ever done a puzzle solving event or something along that line before. As far as I can remember this hasn't been done before here in the Metro Vancouver area.

If there is enough Useless Puzzle Solving Cachers out there, like me, that want to get together one Friday night I will arrange something. By putting our brains in sync maybe we can get rid of some of those Question Marks on the map.

What do you think? Post it here or email me catapultjeff @ telus.net

Love the idea. I usually have no clue on where to even start on 90 percent of the puzzles out there. Putting a few heads together would be great even better still if a few of the experts out there were willing to show up and share a few of the basic puzzle concepts would be awesome

Sounds like a plan I don't even know where to start on most of them so to solve that problem I don't start them hold on that means I never finish them Smack

OK that makes 5 of us. I will start looking for a location near the Freeway and will offer dates to those that posted a reply. This will not be an Geocaching event and will most likely have a cut off to the number of people to join in. So if you don't say anything you won't be kept in the loop. Speak up now.

We could be up for that, we are working on the BUGZ right now, but there are so many locals that have given us headaches.

Well if Short Red will be there, I guess I should go too. We should be good any date, but we do have an very early morning on the 27th. So it would be better for us on the 19th or 5th.

Is there still room for "come lately" people? It would be nice to not just filter the ? out in GSAK like I do now. Any of those dates are OK with me.

Right now it is looking like Friday Feb 19. There is still some room for a couple more cachers.

Had a little kitchen fire while I was working the phones for this today. Ooops. Dinner was saved but there is burnt smell through the whole townhouse. Still have the fans going.

Cartguy can you email me?

Wherever you decide, you will need internet access. Too many puzzles are research , or decrypting tools that are online.

Most coffee shops have wireless, but they might be loud or might not have big enough tables for us. Some of the hotels near 200 & Hwy 1 have restaurants attached that might have access to the hotel wireless network. I think that's likely the most central area near the highway with places that could accomodate.

Nice job Jeff!! I was thinking of posting something in the forums but you made it happen. Hopefully the meeting will be somewhere on the west side of the Port Mann.

Looks like the Walnut Grove area next Friday at 7:00 PM. Yes there is Free WiFi. Look for the email coming soon.

Is Mr Mountainsideman coming? Wasn't it your questions and idea that caused this?

This is what i get for not looking into the forums for a while... Sign us up for the next one. I'm one of the dumbest smart guys you'll ever meet & need the help (badly says the wife).

The 19th is a non-starter for us, Victory Celebration to attend.

I know I've now solved 20 plus puzzles because of the Puzzle Solving night. From the feedback I have received I will put on another one. As well there has been a good format idea put forward that will see even more puzzles solved or at least figured out and information to be shared.
