Fifth Annual Puzzle Mania!

February 9 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


The Friends of Music are sponsoring their Fifth Annual “Puzzle Mania” jigsaw puzzle competition in Shepherdstown the afternoon of Sunday, February 9.

The event will be a fundraiser for the Friends and their Two Rivers Chamber Orchestra.
It will be held from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the Shepherd University Wellness Center on the University’s West Campus in Shepherdstown, WV.

The jigsaw puzzle competition will consist of teams of four persons each. Most teams will start with the same 500-piece puzzle and vie to complete the puzzle first. In an effort to level the playing field, teams that have won easily in the past will get a larger puzzle to solve in the same time period. The winning teams will be honored with a trophy.

Most participants will want to recruit their own four-person teams from friends, neighbors or family members. Those who don’t have time to do that should let Friends of Music know when they sign up, and so they can be assigned to a table.

The fee to participate will be $25 per person or $100 per team. Organizations and businesses are welcome to sponsor teams if they wish.

This is intended as a fun, light-hearted event. It will be family-friendly, and children ages 10 and older will be welcomed as team members.

Light refreshments will be served.

People can sign up and purchase tickets through the Friends of Music website at www.friendswv.org by sending a check to Friends of Music, PO Box 220, Shepherdstown, WV 25443. Either way, those who wish to participate are encouraged to sign up as early as possible to ensure there will be space for them. Ticket prices will be tax deductible. For more information, contact Heather Marshall at [email protected] or 304-582-9998.
