Add your times here.

Last night I attended the Pleasantville Crossword Tournament at the Westchester Table Tennis Center, featuring next Monday-Thursday's NYT puzzles (which I solved on the judges' table before helping to judge). Our own Glen Ryan was the fastest on all three qualifying puzzles, beating out usual suspects Jeffrey Schwartz, Elaine Lippman, Ken Stern, et al. Glen was fastest on the playoff puzzle, but couldn't untangle a wrong letter, which allowed Tom Weisswange to take the title by finishing cleanly. (Jeffrey finished third with a different wrong letter.) As usual, it's great fun to see fellow puzzlers, and to hang out at Will Shortz's house afterwards.
