Each year, usually in February or March, a Dinner is held, open to all setters and to some solvers as well. For all recent dinners, and some earlier ones, a report has been included with the Annual Statistics.

Solver Silver Salver and Ascot Gold Cup

These are presented at each dinner to the most successful solver and the puzzle adjudged best in the preceding year. Full details are available at the awards page.

Dinner Menus and Quizzes

Sometimes the menu has been subjected to a setter’s skills in design or in wordplay. In recent years there have also been quizzes and competitions for the diners. The following table provides some of these; more will follow as they become available. The documents, most of which are PDF files, will open in a separate window.
