102 people showed up to compete on tourney day, with an additional 5 casuals. A total of 416 papers were submitted for scoring.

At the extreme bottom of this page is a form that allows you to examine every puzzle that you submitted. (Cells with white backgrounds were flagged as incorrect, but in a very small number of cases subsequent re-examination resulted in reclassifying a few of these white background cells as actually being correct.) (Email info@crosswordsla.com if you need an ID number reminder.)
