How about we give hone a suitable sendoff with a knight jumpy chainless CEP puzzle.

by: Astrid

 
 
wheew, took me a bit to find the initial piece of CE. After that quite relaxing. Thank You!

 

by: Christoph

 
 
Nice one, Leren.
I used CE, one setti, and a large gap.

 

by: morl

 
 
Thank you for this one. I solved it with a wing and a fish.

@Leren
What does P in CEP mean?

 

by: Klaus

 
 
Hi Frank,

as i think CEP originates from myself, i feel free to answer your question.

CEP means careful elimination puzzle, so "CEP puzzle" is a bit of overdoing it.

 

by: jgrab

 
 
Very nice, thanks. Used wings of different sizes.

 

by: Frank

 
 
Thanks Klaus!

sorry meant representative

Again summer is upon us and hence time for outdoor activities. Though in urgent need of documentation, the solver will be mothballed until winter. I´m sure there won´t be a shortage of extra puzzles as meanwhile there are contributors galore.
The following puzzle is especially dedicated to the other creators, depicting what we are:

Very,very nice, hone.
I used xwings and settis.
Thanks for that. Enjoy your outdoor activities.

 

by: Astrid

 
 
thx for this piece of pure fun!

 

by: jgrab

 
 
A nice joke, thanks! Develops easy, after you saw the proper idea.

 

by: morl

 
 
Thank you for this very nice puzzle. Two xwings and CE, but not easy.

Am I really the first one to have solved the puzzle? With one lucky hi/lo decision it was done in 18 minutes. Very nice one, thank you!

 

by: jgrab

 
 
Thank you. A little head chaining for the initial hi/lo decisions. Nice constellation in col. 5.

 

by: Harm

 
 
Thank you, Leren. SI with col. 3 and 5 was the key for me.

 

by: Ben

Agree with Harm, a very simple SI does it

by: Astrid

 
 
thx, goes smooth with standard tools

 

by: kolumbus

 
 
ty Leren, I found it challenging, needed a small brain chain at 21 solved cells

 

by: jgrab

 
 
Thanks. One little head chain, for me after 19 solved chains and some Setti interaction.

 

by: Max

Standrad tools and a small head chain regarding J3 (after 19 solved cells) solve it.

by:morl

by: Leren

 
 
Solves easily without the clue in J5.

 

by: Astrid

 
 
thx! 8-fish is the key

 

by: kolumbus

 
 
CE and just one setti solves easily. TY

 

by: jgrab

 
 
Thanks. Indeed, one early Setti does it all.

Very nice, and the early setti was the key. But I needed definitely some other techniques to see the further steps.
