On April 25, 2009, we'll be launching the inaugural "Crosswords LA Tournament." It's a very early planning stage as yet, but ... puzzles have been promised (by Will Shortz), a beautiful event room has been booked (on the Loyola Marymount University campus), and an incredibly basic website has been posted (www.crosswordswest.com
). Please consider signing up on that site if you have any interest in getting further info. I'll keep people posted as I make progress in developing the tourney further. There will be prizes. There will be a lunch (probably on a bluff near the event room, overlooking the Pacific Ocean). All proceeds will go to CHARITY. The event is designed to be fun (albeit competitive) and sociable.
