This puzzle is a tribute to Stephen Burstin and his wonderful work producing The Chaplin Society newsletter. There were a great team of people behind it, but Stephen was the 'engine' that got it done. Stephen had a puzzle in that publication which I really enjoyed. I always wanted to try one here and thought this was a good time. Leading Ladies has given away two Sea Gull books so far. This will be number three. Really wanted to make it more fun and more of a challenge too (especially with the higher cost of the book). Good luck to all who try! We will continue the contest, until we have a winner.

Thanks for the interest, so far!

Just a reminder to the rest of you thinking, 'I don't want to spend the time doing that, I just want to enter something and that is that'.

Well, this makes it better for the ones who do spend the time doing the puzzle. Increases their odds in winning.

So thanks for the ones, so far!
