Possible restart of the Sunday Afternoon Scrabble Club in Tucson:After a six-week hiatus from club Scrabble, I’m looking to check the interest level in restarting the Sunday Afternoon Scrabble Club.
If you are interested in playing club Scrabble on Sunday afternoons, please read the following carefully and get back to me with your thoughts. The responses I get to this post will go a long way towards determining the future of tournament Scrabble in Tucson.
In the past, the Sunday club met every Sunday afternoon from 1pm to 7pm at various venues around the city. We played under NASPA Tournament Rules, kept statistics, and charged a $3.00 weekly fee (75 cents of that fee went to the club kitty and was used to defray club expenses, website hosting fees, and subsidize our tournaments. The remaining $2.25 was returned to players as prizes in our weekly contests.) Club sessions were hosted by various club members and were held in various parts of the city to even out the amount of travel necessary to play in the club.
I expect that the club would be run in much the same manner as before (with some minor tweaks) but I am open to considering new or different ideas should they be presented by interested players.
Areas that could be adjusted include number of meetings per month, meeting times, club fee, venue (If someone can provide a single venue that is centrally located, always available, accessible, able to meet our space needs, and FREE. . . .), adherence to NASPA Tournament Rules, and statistics.
If you have any suggested changes, or if you simply want to let me know what your own personal “perfect” club situation might be, please include them in your response to this post. If players express a desire for something different than what we’ve done in the past, I will definitely consider that as we move along.

Next Sanctioned NASPA Tournament In Tucson: None scheduled
Sunday Afternoon Scrabble Club goes on indefinite hiatus:
The club, which met at various locations around the city of Tucson on a loosely woven and variable schedule, has suffered from low attendance problems and competition from other weekend pursuits.
The regular club sessions will no longer be held on Sundays until further notice. If you’d like to play casually on Sundays until the club reconvenes, call Ed at (520) 575 – 6734 for further info or to set up a casual game.
