So, we had some solutions submitted for last issue's gridWORD We had two prizes this week because of the lack of submissions for Issue 1. The only completely correct submission was from Ian Dimock whose answer to the gridQUESTION was, "Last week I was too busy perfecting my Smurf cooking recipe to complete the gridWORD. It turns out that cooking a Smurf any way at all is cruel and disturbing." Although I disagree about the cruelty part (little blue twits have it coming), you can pick up your prize in the MathSoc office on the third floor of the MC. Talk to the office staff and they should be able to get it out of the mathNEWS mailbox for you. Our other prize this week goes to Nick Murdoch who made only one error and answered, "Accidentally gave it to a student who claimed his name was mathNEWS. 16/20" We may have some questions for you about this imposter at a later time so that he can be tracked down and used as a pizza topping. Anyhow, you to can collect your prize. The remaining submissions had more than two errors and so a tiebreak using the gridQUESTION was not required. Thanks to all who submitted.
There is a new gridWORD prepeared for this issue, so submit to the BLACK BOX as usual. Remember to submit an answer to the gridQUESTION: What type of hat do you wish you could own?
