EDIT: The call is closed now. Mike Armbrust will assemble the puzzle.

Hi Twisty Puzzles fans,

Tom Rodgers, the co-organizer of the Gatherings for Gardner (G4G), is acquiring an Over The Top 17x17x17 puzzle for display and sale at the upcoming G4G in Atlanta, 28 March -1 April 2012.

Tom is looking for a volunteer to assemble the puzzle. As you know, it is a lot of work to assemble the puzzle. The assembly would take a full weekend, and the stickering may take another day of work.

We are looking for a volunteer,
-who has experience in assembling Shapeways-printed puzzles
-who has the dexterity to apply the tiny stickers accurately
-who has the time to do the assembly and stickering
-who can commit to a tight time schedule
-who lives in the USA
-who preferably lives not too far from Atlanta
There is no financial award. The only award is the satisfaction of assembling this big puzzle, and some big thanks from G4G.

Please contact me directly if you think you are the person who can do this.

Thank you!

Oskar

If you don't find anyone from the US, on the 23rd of Jan, I have 5 week holidays, I have time and I could ship the puzzle. Then again that's the worst alternative for you but it's an alternative.

If you can't find anyone else, I'm in the Chicago area. I can help with the assembly, but I wouldn't trust myself on the stickers.

That's more than enough. I'd love to do it, but I'm sure I'm not the best candidate. Sent details in PM.

Dear friends,

Thank you all for your kind offers to assemble the 17x17x17. I have selected Mike Armbrust (aka PuzzleMaster6262) as volunteer. I shall be looking forward to the successful completion of yet another puzzle project.

Oskar
