Look for a post with next year’s club sched­ule and goals some­time between now and our first Scrabble meet­ing of the year on January 9, 2011.  Here is a sum­mary of the items that will be dis­cussed in more detail in the post:

1) Meetings twice a month (on the sec­ond and fourth Sundays of each month), unless we have another club activ­ity sched­uled for that month (in which case, we will just meet the sec­ond Sunday).
2) Upgraded web­site.
3) Sponsorship of a 6th grade Scrabble team (at Mike Moses) – assum­ing we can get per­mis­sion.
4) Two toura­ments (one in Houston) and the national tour­na­ment in Dallas.
5) Visit and play with the Houston club.
