Hello! Welcome! Glad you came to visit us!
Club Director: Jim Hughes.
With the seventh edition of the Official SCRABBLE Players Dictionary (OSPD) coming out, there will be new words added to our tournament lists soon. But not yet! Our parent organization NASPA will update the list officially sometime.
There's a Tournament coming up soon not very far away! December 3, in Lorena, Texas. That's on the way to Waco, if you're in Austin. The Director is club member Michael Donegan. Information on cross-tables.com and at scrabbleplayers.org. The maximum is 12 so register soon if you want to go (by contacting Michael).
We had a Doubleheader of Austin tournaments October 29 and 30. We were blessed by the unexpected visitation of some kind of hawk that flew around the tournament room trying to escape until Evelyn threw a blanket over it and carried it gently outside.
The stats site has been relocated to https://atxscrabble.com.
Meetings: When: Wednesdays (Was Mondays in the past.)
Play starts about 7:00 PM so it is good to arrive 15-30 minutes early to set up and chat. We play 3 rounds and people tend to leave mainly between 9:30 and 10:00. It isn't necessary to play all three rounds, but please inform the director if you are leaving early.
Word list: We will be using NWL2020, the North American tournament and club list recognized by NASPA, which has slurs removed (although players can agree to use a different list in a game.) A "cheat-sheet" is available with lists of valid 2- and 3-letter words.
