Microsoft Puzzle Hunt

Every year or so, the Microsoft Puzzle Hunt is held. This is a grueling, two-day affair with some maddeningly difficult puzzles leading towards an eventual goal. It's a team event, with teams of up to 12. Each team is allowed up to 50% non-Microsoft people.
 
Last year was the first time I participated, and it was a blast. My team, the Fuzzy Bunnies, placed a respectable seventh, but this year I'm determined we'll do better. The Hunt is taking place 9/21-9/22 in Redmond.
 
We have a few openings. Any Seattle-area puzzlers think they have what it takes?
 
Here's a link to some puzzles (and solutions) from a previous hunt: http://puzzlehunt.isetv.com/Puzzles.asp

Love to, but I live a little too far away.  Best of luck!

Just wanted to report: the Puzzle Hunt was a blast. Sorry none of you guys was able to attend.
 
Our team (the Fuzzy Bunnies) placed a respectable 7th out of a field of 40-odd teams, I can't help but think we'd have done better with a few of the ace solvers from this message board here Smiley
 
Any interest in me posting any of the puzzles?

Congratulations to the Fuzzy Bunnies! I looked at some of those past puzzles, they were very challenging to me.
 
Of course there's interest; there's always interest Smiley
