Scrabble News

- Peter McEwan -

It is now almost two-and-a-half years since the start of our scrabble group which meets at Café Albert every Wed-nesday morning at 9:30am. During this time we have played 294 games on one or sometimes two tables. To date, our champ-ion is Adri Schoeman with a tally of 101 wins. Her sister Magda Mostert who only started over a year ago has already won 33 games. Another strong contender is Elizabeth Lawson – also a late starter with 41 wins. So far she is the only player to have won three consecutive games in one day.

Yours truly, who started the group, has won only 51 games. André Jaquet follows with 50 games and has the distinction of achieving the highest score in a game, namely, 276 points in our record scoring game to date of 769 points. Sonja Mckenna - soft hearted Sonja - another late starter, is trailing with 12 games won. Occasional Players: Kallie Erasmus - 4 games and William Mathews - 2 games.
