Introduction: Mr. Abbott's Surprise

On the morning of June 1, 1996, the students, teachers, and administators of Christian Fellowship School arrived at the school's Lakewood, CO building just as they did on any normal day. What they found waiting for them, however, was decidedly abnormal: the principal's office was full of newspaper, the sanctuary was "redecorated," and the gym floor was covered with thousands of water-filled foam cups. In the middle of it all lay the cryptic calling card left by the previous night's visitors: a gigantic "Q" encircling the number "17."

Truman Abbott, the school's administrator, knew immediately who was responsible, and set about trying to track down the culprits. Angry calls were placed to the homes of the high school's twelve seniors, but none of the parents claimed to have any knowledge of their whereabouts. And for once in his life, Mr. Abbott had to accept that the situation was (at least for that moment) completely out of his control.
