It’s been a bit over three years since this very first post on this here blog, and we figure it’s time to celebrate.
So this Saturday, 13th August, we’re gonna claim a table at Arcadia from 10 AM and have a joyful meet-and-greet cryptic session with anyone who shows up.
At the very least two of the original DA Trippers will be in attendance (RC and me, AS) along with, holy of holies, DA himself!
Yes, DA is coming down to have a powwow with some of his biggest fans and brave watching them attempt his crossword live. DA can’t walk the streets without commotion these days: also in attendance will be some budding filmmakers who are hoping to get a documentary going about cruciverbalists and the joys of cruciverbalising.
If you think you’ll be making an appearance, please let me know in the comments so I can get the reservation numbers around about right. And if you do come, please avoid peeking at the crossword: the idea is to have us all attempting the crossword together and/or simultaneously.
Here’s DA’s take on the glorious event, and here are the details in a nutshell:
The DA Tripleversary Cryptic Powwow
At: Arcadia, 193 Gertrude Street, Collingwood (sorry about the long trek, Sydneysiders)
Time: 10AM (punctual attendance would be great)
In attendance: DA, AS, RC, filmmakers and maybe you!
