Description This event will be on the Saturday, 4 August. This is not a speed, time, distant event but there will be many wordplay puzzles to solve based on signs found along the routes. There will also be some “complete the quote”, math, count, and word crop puzzles. Compute your answers and then mark your score sheet to indicate which ones you found.

4 August 2018 is the birthday of Hedy Lamar, born in Austria and originally married to an industrial magnet who supported Hitler and made torpedoes for the German navy. After coming to the US she acted in many Hollywood movies but used her knowledge of torpedoes and obtained a patent relating to a torpedo radio guidance system that is the foundation for current Bluetooth technology. She also made improvements to stop lights and developed a tablet that dissolved in water to make a flavored drink.
