Unsolved Mysteries: Lucky Number 7

It's time for round seven!

Based on the popular television series of the 1990s, this event will make us all into daring detectives, stealthy sleuths and ingenious impresarios! Over the last couple of years, this event has been quite popular, so we're bringing it back for another round!

Winnipeg has a wealth of Mystery (or Unknown) geocaches. Many people are intimidated by this type of cache so, we're going to buddy up and try and tackle them.

The overall event will take place on Saturday, September 16th and will run from 11:00AM to 2:00PM and will be broken down into 3 parts:

Part 1: Puzzle Solving 101 11:00AM to 12:00PM

This is meant for those of you who are unsure of your puzzle solving ability, or even unsure where to start when solving them. Dani will give a 1 hour (ish) tutorial to help you get past any puzzle anxiety you may have. If you are already comfortable in solving puzzles, you can skip this hour. Much of the presentation will be the same material covered in previous years. We won't be solving any puzzles until Part 2.

Part 2: Puzzle Solving Workshop 12:00PM to 2:00PM

This is the "meat and potatoes" of the event where everyone comes with their thinking caps on. We'll break up into small groups to work on puzzles from the list of caches requested to be solved. (see below).
Note for latecomers: Please do not come any later than 1:30PM. It's only fair to those who have diligently worked on solving puzzles to reap the benefits. Anyone arriving after 1:30 PM can log an "attended", but will not be given puzzle solutions.

Note for families: Children are welcome to attend, however if they are not actively solving puzzles, and the room becomes crowded, they will be relegated to the library proper and must follow the library's rules for behavior. Also, tables are reserved for active solvers only.

Part 3: Puzzle Hunting! 2:00PM to whenever you want to stop

What's the fun in solving puzzles if you're not going to go and find them! After we've gotten some solutions under our belts, let's go find them! You can either do this on your own, or join other groups to go on a hunt (or two).
