Two time defending champion Bob Mackey never made the podium in the finals of last night's 16th annual Westchester Crossword Puzzle Tournament, benefitting the Pleasantville Fund For Learning. Thomas Weisswange was the only solver of the three finalists - the other two being Glenn Ryan and Jeffrey Schwartz - who completed the Thursday, September 28 New York Times puzzle perfectly. The tournament was held for the second year at tournament host Will Shortz' Westchester Table Tennis Club. See other pictures at the Photo Gallery but please be aware that your enjoyment of the September 28 puzzle may be spoiled.
