UKPA June Newsletter

Post by PuzzleScot » Fri 03 Jun, 2011 3:43 pm

Our web-hosting company is a pain so far as emails go.
There is a 100 msgs/hr limit, and 500/day maximum. Also, the mail logging is rubbish! (I have no access to the logs!)

So, in an attempt to redistribute in database chunks, all has not gone well, and some people may have received it 2 or 3 times. Apologies for this.

In case you don't get it at all today, here it is below:
We have a very busy and exciting puzzling month coming up!

4-5 June : LMI June Puzzle Contest
This will be the third contest in the set of four LMI monthly Puzzle contests (April - July 2011) that will determine two of the places in the UK team for the 2011 World Puzzle Championship.

11-12 June : 2011 UK Sudoku Championship
This superb contest will determine two places in the UK team for the World Sudoku Championship. Global participants warmly welcomed!

18-19 June: Puzzle Cruise
With a lack of news regarding the traditional Father's Day Weekend USA Puzzle Championship, Tawan Sunathvanichkul has stepped in with his first puzzle contest, very much in the style of the USPC.
This is an excellent set of puzzles - most of the styles will be familiar to past USPC participants. Instruction Book is now available for download.

25-26 June: 2011 UK Puzzle Championship
A mix of traditional and novel puzzles promising to be both challenging and rewarding. A true test of anyone's worthiness in a national puzzle team!
The top UK competitor will earn a place in the UK team for the World Puzzle Championship. As with all our contests, international competitors are warmly welcomed to participate.
Instruction booklet will be available 1-2 weeks before the event.

??-?? June: LMI June Sudoku Contest
The date for this has not been finalised yet. I suspect the Indian sudoku authors are busy working on India's National Sudoku Finals (11-12 June).

If you have not yet done so, you may like to visit the Contests page of the UKPA forum (viewforum.php?f=5), scroll to the very bottom-left, and click 'subscribe forum'. That way, you will be notified immediately of new contests from all over the world as soon as we know about them. If you know of one that we don't, then please post a message in the forum to let the world know about it.

Happy puzzling!

One day I will have an automated subscription management system! Apologies if you have already received this email. Our hosting company threw back most of the previous delivery attempt.
