Calling all SCRABBLE players

By Deborah Camp

Everyone knows that Cooper-Young is a hot-bed of devoted SCRABBLE players. From organized games at Otherlands to impromptu sessions at Starbucks, this part of Midtown is indisputably a go-to place when someone feels the itch to score a seven-letter word. For CY residents wanting to step it up a notch, the SPAY is the Word SCRABBLE Tournament will be held Sunday, August 21 in the ballroom of the Parkview Retirement Community at 1914 Poplar Ave. Whether you’re a living room player or a high scoring member of the National SCRABBLE Association, there’s a place at the table for you! Since adult beverages will be available on premises, players must be 21 years of age or older to participate.

Single players can register for $20 or teams of two can register for $35. All proceeds will go to Mid-South Spay & Neuter Services’ non-profit clinic on Goodman Street. Those interested in playing should register right away as there are only twenty tables of four available. Check-in time will be 1pm, with the tournament starting at 2pm. Prizes will be awarded to the individual with the highest score and to the highest scoring team. Food and beverages will be on hand, and a small silent auction will be held between games. For registration information contact Deborah Camp at On Facebook, check out the community page at SPAY is the Word SCRABBLE Tournament. To find out more about Mid-South Spay & Neuter Services go to
