Scrabble Tournament

The Secaucus Public Library will be hosting a Scrabble tournament for adults on Friday, October 9th from 12 noon until 2pm as part of its ongoing Friday Lunch Break series. The competition, which will take place in the library’s second floor meeting room, will be sponsored by the Secaucus Spectator and coordinated by its editor, Don Evanson. Prizes will be awarded to the two highest-scoring players. The tournament will consist of four 30-minute “lightning rounds,” and the players with the two highest combined scores at the end of all four rounds will be the winners. The library will have Scrabble boards on hand and players are encouraged to bring their own, if possible, in order to ensure that there will be enough to run all matches simultaneously. Official Scrabble dictionaries will be provided to settle any word-related disputes.

Light refreshments, including hot beverages, soda, water, snacks and sweets will be provided, but participants are welcome to bring a brown bag lunch if they prefer a more substantial meal.
