This is the first contest in the set of 4 LMI monthly puzzle contests (April - July 2011) that will determine 2 of the places in the UK WPC Puzzle Team.

It will take place over the weekend of 9-10th April 2011.
The contest will last 2 hours. You can choose the time to compete within this window that most suits yourself.

Therefore, if you are seriously considering competing for a place in the UK team this year, it is strongly recommended that you download the puzzle instructions, and ensure you are registered on the LMI site.

You should ensure that you are familiar with the puzzles being used before the contest starts, as it will be a race against the clock!

An overview of UK WPC team qualification is available here

Full details can be found here

What are the actual hours this tournament is open? It doesn't say on the puzzle page since it doesn't specify a time zone.

In the past, LMI have run contests from 00:00 Saturday to 24:00 (sic) Sunday, UK time.
I've asked on the author for a clarification on the timing. Will post here when I know exact hours.

Everyone

Just want to say what a nightmare I had in attempting to take part. Having got up at 3:30am on Saturday morning to head to Poland for my father-in-law's 80th birthday celebrations (in a town without an internet cafe at the weekend) on the Sunday, I travelled back to Warsaw late on Sunday evening with relatives to do the competition in their house (and I tried not to be too worse for wear - but if you've ever been to a Polish party you will know what I'm talking about).

Having got logged in just before 10pm local time (and connected to a printer) I discovered that I couldn't access the start page. Much much later I discovered a small button on an otherwise blank part of the screen that got me in (Fred on the LMI forum prompted me to look further after a plea for help there).

So it's now sometime in the morning, I did what I did, but I'm pleased with my large Odd Skyscraper answer, a question that only 1/4 of the contestants answered. I couldn't even type in an easy answer - seeing lines before my eyes.

Ah well, I hope I'm in a better location for the next one!

And well done Steve, that's a cracking result - taking out David. Hmmmm...

Well, we had a healthy UK entry in this contest - 13, if I've counted correctly!

I need to do a little work on the presentation of the ratings system, but it's a bit late for tonight. I will post it here, and on the main site when done.

If anyone wants to make any appeals regarding their answer keys, please do so to Deb Mohanty, through the LMI site asap.

Also, if anyone does not wish to appear in the UK Puzzle ratings, please let me know.

Is there any update on the UK Puzzle Rankings?

I can calculate them myself, but it would be nice to make them official for reference.

Thanks :),
Ronald

I'm sure these were on the website somewhere, along with the equivalent, but irrelevant, ratings for other contests.

Can't seem to find them though...

Yep, I meant to put them up before I went away for a week, but ran out of time.
The 'test' page is still there on a floating page, but I'll sort that out very soon, now I'm back.
