By on February 10th, 2010

You know you love crossword puzzles when you wake up in the middle of the night trying to figure out a six letter word for mind boggler. Crossword puzzle lovers can attend the Fourth Annual North Florida Crossword Puzzle Tournament this Saturday in Gainesville. WUFT’s Junior Skepple talked with guest host of the tournament, and nationally syndicated crossword puzzle constructor Merl Reagle. Also in the studio was the director of the tournament and founder of Generation Connection, Joel Daunic. Generation Connection is a summer camp that puts together active seniors and kids ages 8 to 12 in a variety of activities. Some of the proceeds from the tournament go to student scholarships to provide a way for students to attend the camp.
