Setec Astronomy Total Landscaping

Setec Astronomy Total Landscaping is a MIT-affliated Team that usually participates in Mystery Hunts. Since 2010, they have placed in top 10 in eight Mystery Hunts. They won Mystery Hunt 2013 as the entire text of the novel Atlas Shrugged and hosted Mystery Hunt 2014 as Alice Shrugged. They won Mystery Hunt 2003 as Kappa Sig and hosted Mystery Hunt 2004 as The French Armada.

The team is famous for changing their name every year to something completely different, resulting in chaos, and being harder to identify every MH. For consistency, they have sometimes been called Tetaputz/Putzazoo (A portmanteau of the two principal MIT East Campus residence halls that it is composed of, Putz (2W) and Tetazoo (3E)). On his Puzzlvaria blog, post, Dan Katz has referred to them as *A.T.T.O.R.N.E.Y (A Team That Obstinately Replaces Names Every Year).[1] See the table below for their other names.

The team Have you tried is a subset of Setec Astronomy Total Landscaping.
