A solution problem tourney was held for all published tourney problems.
The announcement did not identify a judge. While the (unidentified) problem editor was planned to judge the tourney, he declined on the grounds that his knowledge of the identity of the competitors might interfer with his judgement. Instead, J. G. Cunningham agreed to take over the adjudication.
The number of competing problems did not quite reach the required six problems per section expressed in the announcement: fifteen entries were received (in each section: 4 + 6 + 2 + 3). Nevertheless, prizes were awarded in all sections except for C, in which two problems were received, but only one was correct.
