The Cheltenham event will offer a range of prize puzzles in both 2D and 3D to fill in the gaps between refreshment and conversation, but the Premier Event will be
“The All-England RNIB 3D Crosswords Cup”
This will include a very brief introduction and a warm-up round to get into 3D gear.
There are three categories of entry – individual, pairs and teams. If you enjoy solving in good company and are slightly worried about the 3D aspect, why not consider being in a pair or a team? This will be great fun. The Cup will be presented for the fastest (correct!) solution of the main puzzle. Winners of the two slower categories will receive an appropriate momento of the occasion.
The competition will be run in such a way as to guarantee a fair result within two hours of serious fun. This will be the first time for such a competition and your participation and feedback will be greatly valued.
It would be of great assistance to the organisers if you could indicate your interest to attend in an email to Eric Westbrook.
