SCRABBLE for Literacy Community Events
The Community Open House and Mini Tournament events held during previous Tournaments will not be available this year.
Community members are welcome to come and observe the scheduled tournaments. Observers can also receive helpful Scrabble tips, including word lists, at no charge. They may also play Scrabble themselves, using deluxe playing equipment that will be provided in a room adjacent to the tournament if they desire and will play quietly.
