As a suggestion, perhaps we can use the same, or a similar, puzzle construction - and just alter the clues?
EVERYBODY'S TR!
TR: A NEW DAY IS S-OWN
TR: NECTAREAN NICETIES OF THE NORTH
TR: PRIMEVAL PLEASURE

OWN you are most welcome to do that :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

I am sure you would be able to edit the grid here and there if you need an extra block for some words. :D

I have a plan!! Is anyone keen on a monthly Forum crossword?
I have quickly used a crossword generator to make one up, so that we can "test the waters". Its a bit tricky, because you may need to print it out, fill it in, scan it and then PM back to me, or just jot down the answers in a PM. Or perhaps someone (or a mod) has a better technical/IT solution to creating a online forum crossword????? I don't mind generating one monthly (for now) and perhaps we could even move in the direction of the Bird ID challenge, where they give away a book prize if a minimum number of people enter?

So, let me know what you think. I am no professional crossword maker, but I have based this crossword on animals, parks, plants, places etc. associated with SANPARKS. I have tried to blend in some forum aspects and I have tried hard to make it possible to do the crossword from your desk / lounge (or Google if all else fails).

So here goes the first one - please let me know what you think and please make suggestions around whether this can work and/or any improvements :wink: If there is enough interest, I will post the answers/complete crossword towards the end of July......with a new one?

Love the idea :D

With a month to complete the crossword I am sure I can find the time to do this at some point. But, I am technically challenged and struggling to print this off? :hmz:
Skukuza 16/10/15 to 21/10/15
Lower Sabie 22/10/15 to 24/10/15
Satara 25/10/15 to 29/10/15

8) Waterbuck !

Perhaps just have 'mites posting/PMing you their replies this way :

Across :
4. buffalo

and have the 'mites sending it to you only when completed/with all their answers ?
