WFMJ Today 3/9/11- Crossword Puzzle Tournament

Think you're a Crossword Puzzle ace? Are you preparing for the March 12 Crossword Puzzle Tournament and Fundraiser for teens and adults? Then you won't want to miss a special program at 11 a.m. Saturday, March 5, at the Boardman Library, when presenter Tyler Clark will give tips on crossword puzzles and how to compete in the upcoming tournament. The March 5 program on tips and techniques is free and open to the public.

The Crossword Puzzle Tournament will take place in the meeting room at Poland Library at 10 a.m., Saturday, March 12. The tournament will be similar to those held with New York Times Crossword Puzzle Editor Will Shortz. This program is a fundraiser for the Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County.

The Crossword Puzzle Tournament consists of three unpublished, daily New York Times crosswords on which all contestants compete, and (for the individual solvers) a final, playoff puzzle for the three winners of the preliminary rounds. Participants will have a time limit to solve each puzzle. Solving references and outside help are not permitted. The playoff puzzle will be conducted on giant, standup boards for all to watch. Winning will be determined by accuracy of solutions. Solving time will break ties, if any. For more details, plan on attending Tyler Clark's presentation on Saturday, March 5.

 

Registration fee for the March 12 tournament is $10. There is still time to register. Registration forms are available at public libraries throughout Mahoning County. Checks made payable to the Public Library of Youngstown & Mahoning County and completed forms should be sent to the Development Office, Main Library, 305 Wick Avenue, Youngstown, OH 44503. For more information, contact the Development Office at 330.744.8636, ext. 51630
