Scrabble players may remember Matte Dunn, who was an accomplished Scrabble player. He won the Queensland Championship in 2006 and was part of the Australian team in 2014 for the Trans Tasman. Few knew that he had a troubled life and was for most of his life homeless and sleeping rough. He was friendly and generous in helping those new to Scrabble.

Unfortunately he died with asthma in October.

The date for the 2024 Australian Masters and State Challenge has been announced as Sat 7th and Sun 8th September somewhere in Adelaide.
The NSW Championship has concluded in Sydney. It was an open event over three days, welcoming players from not only New South Wales but also Victoria, South Australia and Queensland. Esther Perrins led for most of the tournament but there was a good tussle for positions toward the end. Three days with 24 rounds using resets after rounds 12 and 20 enabled a good standard of competition.
