    Default 2012 mums

    Mums is coming from Apr 23-27. Unfortunately, I dont think that I will be able to participate due to my schedule. Here is the info:

    "Urgent note to all faculty members,

    There is a pandemic of drop bears attacking people. Students are warned to stay away from all gum trees for the time being while investigators move in to determine the cause of this sudden outbreak.

    Regards,
    Central Administration."

    How can we claw our way out of this mess? Only the toughest (leather
    clad) minds can defend us from these 10 inch claws and 100 pounds of furry fury. It sounds like another Puzzle Hunt is brewing!

    You are cordially invited to enter the Melbourne University Puzzle Hunt 2012, which is less than a month away. Entry is now open and completely free. The entire Hunt (except for locating the final hidden
    treasure) will take place online from the 23rd to the 27th of April.

    For more information, go to http://puzzlehunt.mums.org.au

    Regards,
    Puzzle Hunt 2012 Team

    Wow, based on previous years puzzles/answers, you'd better have a 'team' to work on these!!
    I have a brother in law in Canberra, but he just arrived a few months ago and I'm not sure how much time he'd be able to spend in Melbourne (I'll still give him a try!!)
    Thanks for the posting!!

    OK, I'm in, who wants to register "us" as a team? My brother in law is likely no help, he lives over 8 hours away from Melbourne and the pot isn't rich enough for him to be our eyes/ears in Australia for this - but should be fun regardless!

    pianoman - replied. Follow-up, the mums hunt is only a week long, so despite my personal message, I think I can devote enough time to this next week, I'll be checking it out anyway as the hunt progresses!
    You already know this, but Australia is 15 hrs ahead, so if they release a clue at noon on Monday, it should be available to us (US about 9pm (I'm CST) the night 'before'.
    Best of luck if we don't touch base again!!
