Puzzle Notes

Dear subscribers:

It's Tyler Hinman in the crease this week with a 2/5 difficulty puzzle. Tyler will also compete at the annual American Crossword Puzzle Tournament this coming weekend at the Brooklyn Marriott, along with several of our other constructors - wish him luck!

Speaking of the tournament, the AVCX will be there all day Saturday with a merch table featuring free buttons for current subscribers, an extremely strange and great poster designed by Caleb Madison's friend Max, books by our constructors, lots of free printed puzzles for practice, the launch of the Twenty Under Thirty puzzle pack (details forthcoming), and a NEWLY INVENTED TYPE OF HIGH FIVE. Stop by and say hello, and then join us for a drink in the evening.

We'll also be on the Twitter throughout the tournament - follow us @datageneral and @avcxword
