A start:
Given A+B+C, the first two digits are the product of AB. The next two digits are the product of AC. Still working on the last two digits.

Ooh. Another language. Never would have gotten that. Nice puzzle.

Well, obviously I can't count to 20.
2 men, 5 women, 13 children

1. 3 colors so 4 balls?
2. 99
4. 3 sons, 4 daughters
5. Feel like I'm missing something but going to say 9th?
6. Assuming you can't tape pieces together, just over 9 so 10 tapes.
8. 3 men, 3 women, 13 children.
9. 6
10. Push the cork into the bottle.
12. 10 minutes.
13. $20A suggestion: Personally, I prefer reading stuff when the title isn't all caps/ screaming in my face.

Dandelion seed balls?

Bubbles?

Generic meaning... on a house? Cards?
Umbrella?

A sailor?

Apology for raising this, but there is only one "double 0" and one "double 6" combination directly adjacent next to each other in the grid, although the total of 56 (7x8) matches twice the number of 28 domino pieces in a normal set! The "double 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5" are fine.
I'm not quite sure what you are saying. A domino consists of 2 squares. So while there are 56 squares, there's only 28 dominoes. So for example, A2 and A3 together are a single domino.
TSLF Do you want them arranged in an 8x7 grid like the picture? That would mean some rows and columns would contain more than one of a number. Is that correct?

"5) The Chilean, who is not next door but one to the Belgian"
I had the opposite understanding
If the Chilean were pitch 5, the Belgian could not be pitches 4 or 6 because those would be next door. The Belgian could be 3 or 7 if that was meant to read one to the right/left of the Belgian.

I think the inclusion of the word "who" indicates it applies to the American. Can't be sure without clarification though.

lol. I figured the weights were pretty close. But I made the mistake of asking Google. What are the odds of those riddles being posted at the same time? Thanks for the indirect hint fb.

I was going to steal your answer to flamebirde's riddle and say paperclip. But can't manage the feather line...

14 hours ago, rocdocmac said:I've interpreted clue 7 to mean the American found more than the Englishman. Do you have an alternative interpretation? That would contradict your 2nd and 3rd solutions. If you swap Spain and Belgium, Marie no longer finds twice as many as the Spaniard. Your first might be the one! The only thing that would make it incorrect is whatever the intention was on the Belgium clue...

2 hours ago, plasmid said:You have Marie as finding 16. Clue 6 says 16 were found by a man. I assume Marie is a woman. Only time the clues seem to specify man or woman... This appears to be unsolvable with that constraint though...

This site is filled with intelligent people with different strengths. This one just happens to work well with how my brain is wired. Nice puzzle.

4) Brigitte is German. Her tent is two places left of Frank’s, who isn’t at the end of the row, and somewhere right of – but not adjacent to – the UK cacher. Frank's tent isn't at the end of the row meaning tent 7? 1 and 7? Brigitte's tent, not Frank's, is somewhere to the right of the UK cacher? "Two places left" implies that if Frank was in tent 6, Brigitte would be in tent 4. Assuming your next clue was intended to read one tent to the left or right of the Belgian, this would not make sense as one away apparently does not mean next door? If Frank was in tent 6, would Brigitte be in tent 3?
5) The Chilean, who is not next door but one to the Belgian, is further right than Stanley. Pitch one much prefers earth caches. If the Chilean was in tent 5, where would the Belgian be? Not in tent 4 or 6 as that is next door. So 3 or 7?
7) Heidi is immediately right of the person who has flown over from the States, and who found more caches than the UK cacher. 40 Traditional cache where found by a European cacher, their favourite type. Heidi is to the right of the American. The American found more caches than the UK cacher?

Will upload diagram a bit later. Can pretty much fill it out from the description.

I added up the number of students in each of the sports (30,40,25). That's 95. We know there's 23 students who don't play those sports so 67 remaining. That means there's a 28 student overlap. Adding up the given overlaps (15,10,8) gives you 33. So the overlap for those is 5. I subtracted from the appropriate sections of my diagram as I went.
 1


In order:
5, 10, 22, 12

Alright! I think the important thing is that the overhang is on both sides. Not just one side with the next row sticking out from the first.

Oyster?

Well plainglazed, since you asked for it...
No confidence
A lighthouse? Not seeing the first two lines.
Loving all the baseball references I'm seeing though. I see the struggle to break .500 is over.
A little help needed IF you can

Full solution:
Given A+B+C, the first two digits are the product of AB. The next two digits are the product of AC. The last two digits are AB+ACB.
For D+E+F, the last two digits are DE+DF+A.
A=6
B=2
C=5
D=5
E=6
F=7
