The 3rd Annual Scrabble Tournament at the Athol Town Hall in Cherry Valley was a big success with 27 participants vying for the coveted Golden Hoot Award.  The previous champ Scott Bailey was there defending his 2014 win with a previous score of 385,  along with Peta Shelton who ranked in the top 3  in both  2013 and 2014.



After two rousing games the winner, with a combined score of  510 was Ruth Still of Ameliasburgh.    Ruth had an amazing 2nd game with 2 bingos.  (Bingo is a slang term for a scrabble play using all seven of one’s tiles. A player who does this receives 50 points in addition to what the word would normally score.)

The 1st runner-up was Maureen Townson of Picton with a score  of 460 and  the 2nd runner-up,  Alice Mennacher of  South Bay with a score  of 445.
