1. Australian Discussion List (ozscrabble)
The ozscrabble list was started on 31 May 2005 to replace the CASPA discussion list which was terminated after the company that provided the service that made the list possible was taken over. It has been established primarily for the benefit of Scrabble players within Australia. The list is set up as a forum for discussion only and is not an official medium for raising issues with CASPA.
This mailing list has been set up to stimulate discussion and disseminate information about Scrabble, and anyone is invited to participate, whether or not they are involved in clubs, tournaments or interactive play. When you post or cc (copy) a message to firstname.lastname@example.org it goes to everybody on this list.
Subscribers to this mailing list will be the first to find out
results of Scrabble tournaments all around the country (provided they
are posted by a list subscriber). In addition, important postings from
similar mailing lists in UK and North America will be copied to this
list from time to time.
