We had a really fine day May 21 in beautiful Loveland,CO with 26 Scrabble warriors slugging it out for 8 hours straight – with no lunch breaks in sight! (We do play right through). We welcomed out-of-state players Wally Shultz (NM), Dustin Dean (recently moved to Denver from DC), Ronnie Thomas (MD), Mary Parrish (recently moved to Colorado Springs from NV), and Barbara Peterson (WY). Barbara & Simon Turner played in their 1st tournaments – and made it through – so congratulations to both of them for taking the plunge with Barbara actually finishing in the money!
One of our special prizes went for the best/most creative “Donald Trump” word, and it goes without saying that we had many entries – most of which cannot be mentioned in this space.
Our next tournament in Loveland is scheduled for Sept. 17. Our Colorado Springs club will be holding their first tourney on Nov. 19th. We’d love to see more out-of-state folks come join us in one of, if not THE, most beautiful states in the US.
Congratulations to Jon Shreve, James Davis, Wally Schultz, Dustin Dean, Gaye Trickey, Phyllis Baranway, Mary Logullo, Tom Graim, Margaret Wick & Barbara Peterson – all for being in the money.
