New York Times Crossword Tournament

Monday, February 20th, 2012

Last year’s winner, Stephen Yell ’13

This Saturday, February 25, the First Annual Skidmore College New York Times Crossword Puzzle Tournament (or, the FASCNYTCPT) will take place at 2pm in Emerson. Times puzzle editor and all around bro, Will Shortz, will be providing us with a series of unpublished puzzles ranging in difficulty from Monday to Thursday.

I’m one of those guys who does the crossword Mondays and Tuesdays to appear smarter than I actually am, but this should be a really great time. Prizes include crossword books (edited by Shortz) and an iPad 2 (wow!) There’s still time to sign up, but get on it, because the tournament is open to EVERYONE, and I bet lots of interesting townies who live alone and have every season of I Love Lucy on DVD will be taking spots soon.

Saturday, February 25 @ 2pm in Emerson Auditorium
