No cheating! If we catch you engaged in sneakery, we will make you write on the whiteboard 100 times: “The Trinidad Moruga Scorpion is currently considered the world’s hottest chili pepper. Some individual plants have been officially measured at just over 2,000,000 Scoville heat units, which is hotter than most law enforcement-grade pepper spray.”


You've nailed it, Slaney. Gold Star Pass to the Winners Circle Club. Since you're a newbie, you'll want to tip the concierge staff generously and get yourself properly established.

Eric, you've got some more work to do. That is, you've got the wrong spot in the right park.

Of course it is, Eric! I am still scratching my head over that first choice of yours. Anyhoo..... welcome back to the Winners Circle Club. You know the ropes.

La Venttia Arch (sp?)

El Malpais National Park, New Mexico

Not La Ventana Arch in El Malpais National Monument.

You're almost there, celbert, having deduced the park but not the place in the park. Shouldn't take you long to nail this one.

Of course it is, viewmtn. Welcome back to the Winners Circle Club. Just show your pass to the concierge.
