From Mike Johnson:
We had a total of 14 people over to our home to compete in a series of three one-day events. On Friday, 10 players played in a single division that included some nice upsets (Trish Coriden over MIke Johnson AND Carl Voss; Mary Krizan over Jason Vaysburg; and Carol Dustin over Lynda Finn) and some fun words. I still remember Lynda Finn’s incredible reaction when Jason extended YARDS to BEEYARDS for 42 points. Pictured below are Friday‘s winners including Jason Vaysburg (1st), Carl Voss (2nd), Trish Coriden/Mary Krizan (Tied for Best Over Seed) and Carol Dustin (center) for remaining Best Upset by Seed.
Helen Flores is organizing a raffle and silent auction to take place at the Word Cup in Portland Oregon, September 5 thru 9. She has made the quilt shown here, and some clocks from fold-up boards as well. Others are contributing items, too. We encourage your participation as a donor and/or a purchaser.
Here’s Helen’s request:
WORD CUP DONATIONS WANTED!
Please help raise $$ for WGPO, clean out closets and recycle at the same time.
We will hold an auction/raffle at the Portland Word Cup with all proceeds applied to tournament expenses. We hope to retain the highest possible percentage of entry fees for player prize money. This is your cause!
Please bring any and all of the following new or used (in good condition) items with you or send donations to Portland:
* Scrabble or word-related materials, books, clothing, jewelry or other items
* Funky stuff that nerds might appreciate.
* Local or regional specialty items from your area.
* White elephants and fabulous doodads of all kinds.
If you don’t want to feel left out, cash or checks also welcome!
