'66 Geographical Trivia Puzzler - Results from Last Week. The Puzzler Subcommittee was stunned to silence by '66's ability to find locations in State A from which you can go N, E, W, and S to enter State B while passing through no other states. The rules did say there should be a '66 connection, and the sole winner is an anonymous Puzzler Master Classmate, who has since joined the Subcommittee. PM named Greenwich, CT, the "official" answer and home to Class President Kit Mill (Hint: You can travel by boat, helicopter, foot, auto, etc.). Check it out, and note that Stamford, CT works just as well. PM and Carl Eastwick also mentioned that Washington, DC is surrounded by MD (sorry, DC is not a state. Some think it should be, but rules are rules).
From there, PM lapped the field, looking for locations where mighty rivers have changed course and isolated communities (The lawyers can check Nebraska v. Iowa, 143 U.S. 359 (1892)) or meandering rivers wind around towns, or long peninsulas jut into large lakes. Here's the rest of PM's list, all of which the Subcommittee verified. None, however, have known '66 connections with the possible exception of KC, KS. We're sure you'll let us know if we're wrong. Additional Answers: Carter Lake, IA; Ridgeley, WV; Portage Des Sioux, MO; Corona, TN; Eutaw, MS; Kansas City, KS; Sister Bay, WI; and Ephraim, WI. Everyone thought the WI locations were particularly clever, and Tom Yin added Rock Island, WI to the list.
This Weeks '66 Geographical Trivia Puzzler. The Puzzler Master has submitted a new and fact-checked entry. Identify the interstate highway that makes the most crossings from one time zone to another. I-40 going through AZ in the summer doesn't count. The number of crossings is greater than three. Numerous classmates come from a major city near one end of this interstate and others have lived along its route.
Just One More Thing - FAQs: The 55th Reunion Book and Profile
How much will it cost? Zero. It has 100% been underwritten by a group of '66ers.
What will be in there? Basic personal information: name, address, email, phone, spouse/partner, children, occupation if we know you're not retired. At least one post-50th photo of you if we have one. Anything else belongs in the Essay section.
What won't be in there? 50th Reunion essay, Nassau Herald photo, any photos from before the 50th.
What does "essay" mean? Anything you want it to mean. Personal history, anecdotes, poetry relevant to the topic at hand, post-50th accomplishments. If it isn't in the basic personal information, it belongs in the Essay section. Note: there also is a Remembrances section on the '66 website. It's broken and we can't assume that it will be fixed in a timely way. If you have remembrances, just insert them in the Essay section also.
What about personal histories I've submitted to Jon Holman or John Hart or Jim Merritt over the past few years? These already have been deposited on your profile page on the '66 website. You should check your current profile page to make sure that it's there and that you're happy with what's there. Jim Merritt will transfer them into the Essay section so that they make it into the book. Anything you want to add at this point should be added to the Essay page on the website.
What about photos I've submitted over the past few years? All photos that we know to be post-50th have been posted to your profile page, dated, and some subset of them will make it into the book. The exception is Masked Men photos, which will be in a separate section. We intend to post the pre-50th photos we've gotten but this will have to wait until after Reunions (if we give Web Guru John Hart one more job he's going to run screaming into Boston Harbor). And you can post as many photos as you like on your profile page on the website, but please be sure to label them, including date. If the date isn't there we will assume they're pre-50th.
Deadline? The official deadline for getting stuff into your profile for inclusion in the 55th book is January 20. Later information likely will be printed in a separate section just for late arrivals, so not in the main alphabetical body. And at a certain point (we'll give you some warning) you simply won't be in the book other than the basic personal information mentioned above.
