Advent Puzzle 10 Solution: (Unsolved) Deadline passed without solution. (options to reactivate this may come later)

Chairman Pinkerton shuffled through the papers on his desk, considering who he could give them to. Not as actual certificates or anything, of course, but what else were the other Society members for when they weren't out Exploring? His eyes lit on an envelope he didn't recognize, however. 'Challenge puzzle 10: ??????????? Challenge'.

He considered it for a moment. If he opened it, he might be obliged to actually do it himself; and he had intended to take a short break before the festivals of the month and year started - in fact, he'd rather enjoyed the prospect of someone else arranging entertainment for the Explorers which he didn't have to think about. On seeing a note on the envelope though, he smiled, and stood, strolling towards the great hall. No danger of him having to do a puzzle himself, he thought.

On reaching it, he walked up to the Puzzle-related board of information and guesswork that the Explorers had set up, found an empty space, then pinned the envelope to the board with more than a little sense of self-importance. It was gratifying, after all, to be included in the puzzles - but even more so when he didn't actually have to do anything about it.

'Explorers!' He cried out. 'The latest Puzzle is here - and it looks like you'll have to work out whose it is!'

The note on the back of the envelope, which the Explorers now crowded round to see, said simply 'This challenge belongs to one of you - and the challenge is in finding out who it belongs to!'

Puzzle: I'm not sure why the Renowned Explorers can't get things right: they've got my homeland's name wrong!

This challenge is, as yet, unresolved - opportunities to open this challenge again may occur in the coming month.
