JR WILLIAMS***
PO BOX 700
GREENPORT NY 11944****

* The last issue of SCRABBLE News that you will receive, unless you renew your membership. This number is also printed monthly in the ratings list. Please contact us if this expiry issue appears incorrectly on your label or in the ratings list.

** This is your personal membership number. It should appear in printed versions of the ratings list, but not online.

*** This is your name. It should exactly match your name as listed in the ratings list, to ensure that your tournament games are correctly rated.

**** And this of course is your mailing address.

"SCRABBLE® Brand Crossword Game" is the proper way to refer to this unique group of word games and related properties marketed by HASBRO. "SCRABBLE®" is not a generic term.

All we ask is that when you mean SCRABBLE® Brand Crossword Game, you say so.
