Any Bay senior who knows that “pyx” is an ancient word for “container” may want to show up for the 2011 Bay Area Crossword Tournament in Alameda on Sunday, September 11:30 to 4:00 pm. You’ll have a half hour each to do four crosswords. There will be cash prizes for winners (up to $100) as well as four unpublished puzzles from New York Times whizbang Will Shortz. $20 to register. Form is online.
