The last two grids for this volume provide an interesting juxtaposition in my grid file. The previous grid had 47 numbered squares which is the most this term. This week's grid on the other hand has the fewest, with only 28. That may have something to do with the number of long words showing up in this grid. Hopefully, it will provide sufficient challenge to entertain you.
Last issue's grid was rather capsicum-laced and we had several submissions. The winner was George Li who submitted a correct solution and answered, "A raccoon corpse with tire tracks on it." Really, I'm surprised that they didn't make that into a Pokémon already given how bad an idea it is. So, you can collect your prize from the MathSoc office.
Alas, as this is the last week of the term, there are no prizes for submitting this issue's grid. To keep you happy though, you can check your answers against the solution somewhere in the issue. No peeking until you complete the grid.
