Knoxville, anyone?

Best of luck to Will this weekend in the Knoxville tourney. Anyone else going to make the trip? Unfortunately I can't this time, but hopefully will in June. I wanted to put in a last-minute plug for this tourney for anyone that may be on the fence.

If you're looking for some rated Scrabble play, I strongly recommend this tournament. It's only about 2 1/2 hours away, and the directors, Vicki Blizzard and Trish Harrop, always do a great job. They're usually pretty good about accommodating last-minute entries, too, but you should let them know soon (within the next few days) if you're going.

Details can be found here:

First Official Club Meeting Tomorrow!

Tomorrow, Jan. 8, is our first monthly, 2nd Sunday "official" club meeting for 2012. Get ready for some major changes!

Nah, just kidding, we'll still be playing Scrabble like normal. The main difference is that I will start keeping statistics for the official meetings (cumulative wins/losses, average score, average opponents' score, # of bingoes, etc.). I may eventually institute a club rating system, but for now I'll see how I do with the basic stats. My plan is to have the stats available online via a link from the blog or website...which I still need to work out.

We'll start at the normal 3pm. Folks are still welcome to show up before that for some early pickup games, but those games will not count in the stats.

I'm hoping we can have strong turnout for this and future official meetings. I'll be there...who else?
