First Annual ScrabbleRouser Tournament - 2010
Our first-annual ScrabbleRouser was a success, featuring a 3-round tournament of America’s favorite board game. 20 people got busy forming words for prizes and bragging rights. Team Kripalu won the 3 rounds of Scrabble with a cumulative score of 688 points. A plaque with their team name will be displayed for a year at Kripalu. Kripalu also captured the “best library word” prize for having played the word “youth.” The winner of the Word Mine game was Phil Webster of Team Kripalu, who found 52 words of 3 letters or more in the word “literacy.” The Grand Prize, a custom SCRABBLE ® board, went to the team with the most funds raised: The Bulldozers (two local families).
Players asked if they could meet once a month to continue to enjoy playing SCRABBLE, and to train for next year. With that in mind, a Scrabble Night is set for the first Tuesday of each month, beginning Tues. October 5, 6:00-9:00 pm at the Reading Room. Call Sharon Hawkes at the library at 637-2630 for details.
