This was the first club of the new season (2004-2005), and we started with what might be record attendance. Certainly the most for a long time on a ‘regular’ club night (we’ve had big crowds to celebrate when someone in our club has a top three finish at the World Championship – which has happened more often than you might imagine)!
Our club’s web page has a new look. Why?
For one thing, the old page had a ‘news’ section which was always embarrasingly out of date. Currently it announces that David Boys is the ‘New Canadian Scrabble Champion’ – nine months after the fact.
This new format is known as a ‘blog’. It makes it easy to add weekly entries which will eventually roll off the front page but remain accessible for as long as we care to keep them. It also allows people to add comments to any entry if they wish.
