National Scrabble Championship update
The NSC 2022 in Bristol is now just three weeks away and numbers are
looking good - we hit 60 paid entries yesterday and still some I know
in the pipeline.
I didn't think I would be in a position to be talking about maximum
numbers but no room is unlimited in size so I would get entries in quick
smart - especially if you have already booked accommodation! I think
from memory the maximum in the room is around 80 but will confirm that
with the venue.
The absolute deadline is June 5th as I have to give final catering numbers
on Monday 6th. After that date you would be reliant on cancellations.
If you are sending by post in the next week or so give me a ring or
email, as I am not at home for some of the time leading up to the event
so might not pick up physical entries straight away. Also let me know
if you have sent a bank transfer but I am checking that regularly.
Top prize in the main division should be at least £700 with 5 place
prizes and two ratings prizes. The plate event is a little smaller
than expected as a lot of those below 145 have played up, but will be
prizes for top 3 and a rating prize.
We are also looking for a potential floater between the plate and the
main event - players must be under 146 for this but would pay the lower
plate price regardless of where they play.
