We had a wonderful turn out at our 6th annual Scrabble Tournament this past Sunday.  24 players in all playing 2 rousing games of Scrabble.  The afternoon was enhanced mid way by a lovely potluck lunch.

But in the end there could be only be one winner!   Susan Lockwood won with a 2- game combined score of 422, with  2 bingos in her 2nd game!!!! Followed by Jennifer Cobb  in second, Chris Pengelly in third and Pia Grayman in fourth.
