Chocolatespoon: Emily’s Musings

Archive for the ‘Uncategorized’ Category

This weekend was the 4th Annual Silicon Valley Puzzle Day! I seem to forget each year just how much work is involved, but somehow we pulled off another one and had a great time doing it. We had an amazing day of workshops on Saturday (featuring not only puzzle celebs like Tyler Hinman and Thomas Snyder, but the author of both Saturday’s and Sunday’s NYTimes puzzles — Mark Diehl and Andrea Carla Michaels.) Sunday we had the adult and youth sudoku and crossword competitions (plus some other word puzzles for the kids), including final adult rounds on the big boards in the front of the room. With all the competitors, volunteers and onlookers, we had about 200 people to puzzle, entertain and feed over the two days.  And the best part is that we raised awareness (and a little bit of money) for the <a href=”; target=new>Morgan Hill Library Foundation</a>.
