If you want your contest to delight and distract us during the UK's longest day, could you set it at 7am rather than 9pm? Otherwise you might as well say "...during the day after the UK's longest day!" as it currently it will only occupy us UK lot for at most one-eighth of the longest day Razz

Jon please don't put terrible ideas in their heads, suggest a sensible time of 4.00 - just in time for me to get home from school. Even better suggest a contest is sensible and starts on a Friday night or a Saturday morning.

I thought I needed to keep an eye on what was going on around me - and it had to be the 21st Clare so that I could add the line about the longest day.
But it is meant to be a relaxing and fun contest so you should be in bed at a reasonable time Angelic

That, my dear friend, is entirely up to you
The puzzles range from easy to moderately hard but as we are not as experienced as many puzzle setters, we don't think we have the knowledge to make them too difficult... yet.

Good question...LOL! Smile

I think The Hirsute One is implying that the contest is a lot easier than it actually is. Some of the puzzles really *are* easy, but there are a few tricky ones in there as well.
