Tis the time of year to get comfortable and devote a few hours to the relaxing activity of making jigsaw puzzles.
If you want to meet others that enjoy testing their puzzle solving skills and want a unique opportunity to see how your abilities measure up against others, then add this event to your January schedule.
The Hope Library is holding its first ever Jigsaw Puzzle Competition on Saturday, Jan. 20 from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.
Only eight teams of four members each will be able to participate so form your team and sign up. It is a free event but you must pre-register.
There is already an “orphan” team list started at the library, consisting of individuals that want to compete but are unable to get a foursome together.
So if you want to participate and meet some new puzzle friends this would be the way to register.
Each team will receive a 500-piece puzzle that is identical to the puzzles given to the other teams.
The objective is to finish the puzzle before the other teams do, so each team is welcome to bring whatever they believe will give them a competitive edge for example a magnifying glass, caffeinated beverages, snacks, music… Remember, no alcohol is permitted in the library.
For more information and to pre-register contact the Hope Library at 604-869-2313.
Now start practising with a jigsaw puzzle at home, hone those skills and come out on Jan. 20 to display your prowess.
