Ulysses' Challenge #2
(Click here for last month's challenge)

(Who is Ulysses?)

This month's puzzle is a fairly easy crossword!   

You can print the puzzle, fill it out and either turn it in at club or mail it (with your name and return address!) to Chess Odyssey, 2373 NW 185th, #261 Hillsboro, OR 97124, or you can type your numbered answers in an email and send it here.

The first student from each Chess Odyssey club to send Ulysses the correct solution before the 4/25/03 deadline will win a prize.  In addition, every Chess Odyssey student who submits a solution will earn 2 points, or a possible 5 points if Ulysses agrees that your solution is correct.  If you're not a Chess Odyssey student, feel free to send us your answer also (though prizes are only for those in our programs)--we'll be happy to let you know how you did.
