Back to Tournament Results
The 27th annual Toronto-Montreal (SCRABBLE®) interclub match takes place on November 26–27, 2011 at the Confederation Place Hotel.
We play by regular NASPA tournament rules. In past years, no record was kept of cumulative spread, and games could therefore end by resignation; there will be a brief discussion at the beginning of this year’s event concerning conforming to an informal request from NASPA to abandon this practice.
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.

Teams will compete in four divisions (A, B and C) with no intermixing. Results of the TWL and CSW sections of the A division will be combined to determine the result of the Kingston Cup.
We had originally planned on having 8 players on the Toronto B team and 6 players on the Montreal B team play according to the following schedule:
T1: T4 M6 T3 M5 M4 T2 M3 M3 M2 M2 M1 M1 T2: M6 T3 M5 T4 M3 T1 M5 M4 M1 M1 M3 M2 T3: M5 T2 T1 M6 T4 M5 M1 M1 M4 M3 M2 M3 T4: T1 M5 M1 T2 T3 M1 M4 M2 M3 M6 M5 M4 T5: M4 M3 M6 M2 M1 M2 T8 M6 T7 M5 M4 T6 T6: M3 M4 M4 M1 M2 M6 M2 T7 M5 T8 M6 T5 T7: M2 M1 M2 M3 M6 M4 M6 T6 T5 M4 T8 M5 T8: M1 M2 M3 M4 M5 M3 T5 M5 M6 T6 T7 M6
However, due to two last-minute cancellations, we are likely to play 7 on 5, with one bye each round, like this:
T1: T5 M5 M3 T4 M4 M3 T3 M2 M2 T2 M1 M1 T2: M3 T6 M4 M3 T4 M5 M1 T3 M1 T1 M2 M2 T3: M5 M2 T7 M5 M1 T4 T1 T2 M4 M1 M4 M3 T4: M4 M4 M1 T1 T2 T3 M2 M1 M5 M2 M3 M5 T5: T1 M3 M5 M1 M2 M1 M5 M4 T7 M3 T6 M4 T6: M1 T2 M2 M4 M5 M2 M3 M5 M3 M4 T5 T7 T7: M2 M1 T3 M2 M3 M4 M4 M3 T5 M5 M5 T6
Montreal now leads Toronto 15½–10½ in the Kingston Cup and 9–6 in the 401 Trophy, and Toronto leads Montreal 7½-1½ in the Midway Cup. Click to see historical records about the players and the teams.
