TONGUE TWISTER CONTEST AT LOGIC PUZZLE MUSEUM

The prizes for the adult division of past year's International
Tongue Twister Contest included a "portion of a peck of pickled peppers."
A most appropriate reward. A yellow yo-yo (say that fast 10 times!)
went to a student, and another winner took home sea shells that she could sell.
Audience applause topped all prize value and laughter filled the hall. 
Come to participate or just watch, listen, laugh and enjoy it.

The Logic Puzzle Museum's Tongue Twister contest has several age divisions.
Past prizes include such "tongue twister nouns" like "sea shells you can sell"
or a "yellow yo-yo, " or maybe a " toy boat", and fun things like a red
spinning spiral top. See you at the next one!
Bring grandma and grandpa, too!

~ More fun that you will like in November:  MYSTERY OBJECTS event!
Hands-on:   almost 300 odd and strange objects: try to figure out what they are!   Try the Objects in a Box game, too! 
Be here for the Lightning Round: "What is this thing anyhow?"
