Back to Tournament Results
The 25th annual Toronto-Montreal (Scrabble®) interclub match takes place on January 16th and 17th, 2010 at the Confederation Place Hotel.
We play by regular NASPA tournament rules, except that no record is kept of cumulative spread. Games may therefore be ended by resignation, when both players agree that the outcome is certain and the game does not need to be played out. This should be in keeping with the late Mike Wise’s unofficial motto for this event: “Play in a spirit of friendly rivalry.”
Lisa and Sary draw to see which side goes first in even-numbered rounds, overriding the NSA’s usual protocol.
A entry fee of $20 is collected from each player at the tournament, to cover the cost of the room and the NASPA participation fee. All participants must be NASPA members before play begins.
