WESPA Rules OK - January 2011


WESPA logo From 1 January 2011, WESPA rules version 1 apply without variation at all ABSP-rated events. See the WESPA website for more information.

Players at the recent UK Open and subscribers to uk-scrabble mailing list will be aware of some dispute over the application of a few of the rules. Tournament Coordinator Steve Perry is consulting with Tournament Organisers on the matters, but in the meantime please clarify with the Director if you have any questions on what is acceptable.
