As a start to the goal of moving the WGPO Word Cup around the continent, the 2012 version will be held in Bloomington, Minnesota, on August 3 – 8. Event details still need to be worked out, but there likely will be an Early Bird on Friday, August 3, followed by a five-day, 31 – 35 game Main Event, similar to this year’s Word Cup in Reno.
The tournament will take place at the DoubleTree Hilton Hotel Bloomington – Minneapolis South, just a few miles from the Twin Cities International Airport and Mall of America. Free shuttles to and from those locations, from which light rail connects to downtown Minneapolis, Target Field (Minnesota Twins) and places between.
Stay tuned for details,
