Puzzle #103 – Hitchin’ a Ride (and it’s a contest!)

In this meta-puzzle, you’re looking for a famous name.

It’s time for another contest! For the winner: a copy of my puzzlefest and plenty of bragging rights. Last time, only one solver managed to get the correct answer. I’m hoping for better results this week. Don’t let me down!

  1. First, solve this week’s crossword puzzle. (To keep you honest, I’m locking the Across Lite file, so it’s not going to tell you if you’re making mistakes or give you Mr. Happy Pencil when you’ve gotten everything right. Plus, the solution grid isn’t up yet, either. Fair warning!)
  2. Figure out the answer to the meta-puzzle (note the prompt in italics above) and email it to neville.fogarty@gmail.com. Please put your solution in the subject line of the email. You have until 6 AM ET on Thursday, September 11, 2014 to submit your answer – and please: only one guess per person. If you’ve got the right answer, you’ll receive one entry in the random drawing to win.
  3. Keep your fingers crossed!

That’s it! Remember that all correct answers submitted before the deadline are treated equally, so you don’t have to solve quickly. If your name is selected, I’ll send you an email on Thursday asking you for some details, so keep an eye out for that. I’ll announce the winner next Friday along with this puzzle’s solution and a new puzzle. And if you’re craving more contest crosswords with an added “meta-puzzle” element, check out  Matt Gaffney’s puzzle every week. Feel free to comment on the puzzle, but please don’t give too much away. Referring to entries by their locations is always a safe bet.
