The puzzles we will use are provided by Will Shortz, ACPT founder and New York Times Crossword Puzzle Editor. They are four not-yet-published NY Times puzzles, ranging in difficulty from Monday to Thursday. Accuracy and speed will rule the day, but there will be a separate winners category for those who have never competed in a tournament before. Seating is limited, so please register in advance by calling the Killingworth Library at 860-663-2000, stopping by in person, or sending an email to treasurer@killingworthlibrary.org with your name, address, and telephone number.
