#Scrabble NSW had 7 representatives in Australia 's team of 13 at the World Scrabble Championships conducted in Nairobi, Kenya, in November 2017. They were Esther Perrins, Bob Jackman Tony Hunt, John Holgate, Victor Tung and Graeme Lock Lee. Joanne Craig, resident in Sydney and a Scrabble NSW member represented New Zealand .
#Since the last 'Latest News' two new clubs have been started being Mittagong, complementing Moss Vale and Bowral in the Southern Highlands, and Sanctuary Point in the Illawarra District.
#Scrabble NSW has been forced to introduce a further postage surcharge due to rising Australia Post costs. Members wishing to have their quarterly magazine posted to their home address will now need to pay a $10 per year surcharge when renewing. There is no surcharge should members wish to have their hard copy magazine emailed to them, posted to their club convenor, or handed to them at the next tournament they attend.
#The Teams Challenge will be back later in 2018, probably to be held in Sydney’s south. We will be looking for 8 teams of 6 initially, but if numbers are good the size of team will be increased by one. Expressions of interest are now sought from Club Convenors and Players wishing to form their own team.
#Venues have been booked for the remaining events in 2018 organised by Scrabble NSW. They are the Winter Challenge and New South Wales Championship, both at Waitara, the Winter Masters at Bankstown Sports and the Spring Marathon at Burwood RSL.
