Crossword Tournament May Head Back To Stamford

STAMFORD, Conn. -- The organizer of the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament is considering a move back to Stamford, according to a blog post at The New York Times by Pleasantville's Will Shortz. 

The 37th tournament will be held March 7 to 9 at the Brooklyn Bridge Marriott, where the event has been for the past six years. But that is the last year of the contract with the hotel.

"Beginning with 2015, though, I’m seriously considering moving the event back to the Stamford (Conn.) Marriott, where we were for the first 30 years. If you have an opinion on this change, please let me know," Shortz wrote last week. 

He cites lower costs in Stamford but a tighter space. He seeks comments on the blog or emails to celebesox@aol.com. Either way, the answer is an eight-letter word for a tristate business center.
