Successful Event at Tompkins Learning Partners

Adam Perl, Ithaca's Puzzlemaster, constructed three unique puzzles ranging from easy to difficult, and teams or individual players competed against each other and the clock to be the first to solve the puzzles and win prizes. Competitors paid an entry fee of their choosing.

The afternoon included refreshments and a silent auction where participants could bid on items donated from local institutions. Bidders won gift cards to restaurants, book stores, tattoo shops, tickets to the Hangar and Kitchen Theaters, and even a certificate to La Tourelle Spa valued at over $100!

The event even saw New York Times crossword puzzle writer Rex Parker who gave a post-match talk and even blogged about his experience on his website! (link: http://rexwordpuzzle.blogspot.com/2017/03/metal-band-around-pencil-eraser-sun-3.html)

Tompkins Learning Partners would like to extend a special thanks to Gary Weissbrot, the event chair without whom the event would not be possible, Adam Perl for his flawless puzzle construction, and Rex Parker for making such an exciting appearance.
