#Since the last report some major Scrabble NSW events have been run and won. Alastair Richards from Queensland won the City of Sydney Masters in late January, while Estehr Perrins won both the Winter Masters in July and the State Championship earlier this month. More recently the Spring Marathon was taken out by veteran John Holgate, one of teh pioneers of Scrabble in Australia
#Vice-President George Khamis has been active in getting new clubs off the ground in the Southern Highlands. Bowral was the first to form followed by Moss Vale. Mittagong Club is scheduled to open in early November with Bundanoon to follow shortly after that.
#Our giant Scrabble board was instrumental in attracting new players to Bowral, featuring on the front page of the Southern Highlands Times on [date]
#Lane Cove Scrabble Club kicked off in July. Details can be found on our Club Directory and through the Lane Cove web page at scrabblensw.org.au/lanecove
#Our next three tournaments are all regional with Nowra in early November, Central Coast in late November and Bundanoon in early December. These are ideal tournaments to dip your feet into if you are thinking if giving it a try
#Attempts are being made to expand competitive Scrabble in the Hunter Region, and to that end a friendly, unrated tournament was held in Newcastle in mid October.
