Steve's Stash:

The Cookie Cutter Caper

Vaughan D. has hidden the cookie cutter and provides the clues until a PTHC club member finds it. 

The clues:

  1. I'm in "Dire Straits".

  2. Because I'm in "Dire Straits", you might think I'm in a kerfuffle. I'm not. It's closer to a confluence.

  3. The band Chicago once sang, “25 or 6 to 4”. I say “5 or 9 to 2”.

New Clue! (2020-01-16)

A lone sentry guards the bank; keep a reasonable distance. Cast a line inward from the rocks that don't roll. 30 steps might be just enough.

Use the clues above to find the cookie cutter and turn it in for a major award at the monthly club meeting. Non-members will receive a reward for returning the item to the club.

About Steve's Stash

This feature of the PTHC is named after long time club member, Steve Stretch. The club lost Steve's Stash in early 2019 when it was apparently found by a non-club member and not returned to the club. Club member Jim T. stepped in and buried a cookie cutter which transformed Steve's Stash into the Cookie Cutter Caper.

At each PTHC meeting, members submit interesting and valuable items found during the previous month. These finds are judged, and 1st through 4th place prizes are awarded. Any  entries not placing receive a ticket for the Second Chance drawing.
