Subj: Austin Puzzle Hunt

Because he's a sweetie-pie Philip Dasler started by pointing out that I'd made a mistake: I'd talked about a treasure hunt "in Austin", but really it was in Auburn. Even better, he wrote about some puzzle hunts that really were in Austin:

There have been a few puzzle hunts run here in the past. Matt Stephens ran them as an initiation for his fraternity while he was at the University of Texas. After graduating, he began a company ( and ran a handful of Puzzle Hunts here, calling them Midnight Madness. He has not done one in over a year though, and I am unsure as to whether or not he plans on doing any in the future. I, on the other hand, am looking into putting one together. I would love to be able to create a puzzling community similar to the one you enjoy on the west coast.


Probably a good first step would be to convince Auburn's puzzling community to move to Austin. Then it would be easier to get "quorum" for puzzling events. And I wouldn't need to worry about mixing up the names of those cities anymore.
