Village d'Alsace Around 40 members journeyed to the Worcester town of Malvern for our third meeting of the year, including one couple from Spain. How’s that for dedication to the cause? The theme of the meting was “1914-Life and Times”, with an excellent display of members puzzles to represent this most significant year in world history. Many were directly related to “The Great War” itself, but others were far more oriented towards social and cultural aspects of the period. Hopefully the forthcoming newsletter will suitably reflect the variety on display. The images shown are of a wooden puzzle and its box by French manufacturer “Perplexité-Paris”, entitled “Village d’Alsace and featuring a painting dated 1914 beside the signature of illustrator Fabien Fabiano.

The host and hostess for this meeting had taken the unprecedented step of having flask upon flask of tea and coffee prepared for the guests and these proved to be very popular accompaniments to the puzzling activities of the day, enabling us all to concentrate even more of our time towards the assembly of the great selection of fascinating puzzles laid out on the tables for that very purpose. Come along and join us some time, it’s great fun.

We even get together every couple of years for a weekend House Party event where the puzzling continues unabated for two-three days! Next event Peterborough 2015.
