2008 American Crossword Puzzle Tournament

Monday, January 21, 2008

The registration form is finally up at the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament site, so go here to register for this year's tournament (Friday, Feb. 29-Sun, Mar. 2, 2008 at the Brooklyn Marriott).

My wife would like to remind you that you do not have to be a speedster to enjoy this event. She's only just beginning to tackle the late-week puzzles, but she's proceeding fearlessly into the puzzle fray. The more "normal" solvers, the better, I say. It's your hobby, too. So come and enjoy the puzzles. You will not regret it. If you love puzzles, you will not feel out of place, whatever your skill level. I'll be there, Orange will be there, Emily will be there with various versions of her beautiful art for sale ... Will Shortz will be there, in case that wasn't obvious. So go go go. Please. Thank you.

All the best,


Orange 3:00 PM  

Yes. Be there and be incredibly square!

A question: at the online registration site there's a breakdown of age groups. How many seniors show up for the tournament?

Ellen 7:44 AM  

To Whitey's Mom re Seniors: 57 Seniors in 2007, according to the results posted on the tournament site. Up from 45 in 2006.

To Elllen: Thanks. I must have missed the results part. I'll check it out.

Ellen 5:24 AM  

To Bunky: Juniors are 25 and under. The next age category is 50's. There is no way to know how many people ages 28-40 attended.
