Sydney Club Tournament - November 8th 1997


Herewith report by Jean McGiffen, Tournament Organiser:

The Sydney Scrabble Club hosted another successful tournament at the Revesby Workers Club on 8th November 1997. My thanks to the committee and all those who helped out with cakes etc.

After a lot of headaches with players ringing in to play, or pulling out after the closing deadline (8 in all), the day went off without a hitch. The fact that all players were encouraged to use a clock meant that everyone started and finished together, resulting in a smoothly run tournament.

Lee, Craig and Jacqui McGiffen handled the computers and catering with expertise and Ben and Adam Archibold were very capable runners. Thank you to Pat Rae for her help with the look-up programme.

Ram Mohe won $50 in the raffle and Joanne Deady won the Whitman chocolates.
