The Tennessee Valley Crossword Puzzle Tournament

A morning of fun and games to benefit The Generation Connection.

Saturday, December 8th, 2012 9am-1pm

Are you ready to test your crossword skills? The 1st Annual Tennessee Valley Crossword Puzzle Tournament will be held on Saturday, December 8th at the Downtown Nashville Public Library from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.

Enter as an individual or as a team of three--all levels of puzzlers are welcome!

As the competition progresses, the puzzles will get more difficult, but everyone will be guaranteed at least three rounds. Individuals and teams will have thirty minutes to solve each puzzle, and as they finish, their puzzles will be collected and scored. After Round 2, individuals will be divided into an A Flight and a B Flight, and after Round 3, B Flight and team winners will be announced. For the grand finale, everyone will be invited to watch the top three A Flight individuals compete on stage, using large easels displaying the final puzzle, in a nail-biting final round (similar to the action seen in the documentary Wordplay.)

Prizes will be awarded for the B Flight winner, top senior individual and the team competition winners, as well as for the two individual finalists and grand prize winner! All contestants will be treated to doughnuts and coffee and a catered lunch.

How To Register

Cost is $40/individual, $30/individual senior or $90/team of three.
