Crossword Puzzle

Crossword Puzzle Contest!

To bring our 25th anniversary celebration to you, we’ve created a crossword puzzle with the theme of ‘Free Advice.’  Solving this puzzle should provide you with some of our primary pieces of advice (which might just reinforce what you know, having worked with us).

If you have not received a copy of the puzzle, download the word file here! You’ll need the CLUE LIST (also a word file).

The winner of the contest was the super-fast puzzler Andy Merriell (Merriell & Associates, Santa Fe NM) for being the first wizard to send in a correct solution. For anyone else, here are some of the answers to the strangest clues: 38 Across (the town in India that you’ve never heard of): TANOT; 32 Down (the lake in Switzerland): BIENNE; 60 Across (the organization that you should join): VSA — the Visitor Studies Association (; and 73 Across (the Navy ship): USSLA — the USS Louisiana.
