"I have been playing SCABBLE for many years, competitively for the past nine. Rosendale, NY, was my most enjoyable tournament. It was held at a beautiful lake and run very well by Joe Edley <firstname.lastname@example.org> and Laura Klein."Muriel earned first place in the aspiring novice division, making the event all the more memorable.
For the past 29 years, Muriel has been employed as secretary for the United Auto Workers Region 9A. She enjoys traveling and considers playing SCRABBLE® with Morgan, her seven-year-old granddaughter, one of life's greatest pleasures.
Muriel spent two weeks in Greece this summer and says she enjoyed "seeing all the Greek words that Ive been studying, I am looking forward to the NSC and hoping that I will be able to remember to use a few." Since 31 rounds of SCRABBLE® weren't quite enough, Muriel and a gang of her friends took the same AMTRAK train from New York to Chicago. They made sure they had an even number of 10 so that they could trade off and play SCRABBLE® all the way!
When Muriel heard she was going to be featured on the NSC 98 web site, she included photos and information about other attendees from her club. They are: Vicki Kahn, assistant director, Merble Reagon, Jacquitta Ladson, and Stacia Camp. See their brief bios below.
Since Vicki has been playing SCRABBLE® since she was six years old, she's had the chance to attend many tournaments. At a past NSC she went 3-27, which she says was "not exactly fun." She hopes this NSC will have a better outcome!
NSC 98 will be Merble's first national tournament and second trip to Chicago. She is looking forward to both. With a rating of 1447, she will be competing in Division Two.
She writes, "I love playing SCRABBLE®! I've been playing in tournaments for almost five years and I've really enjoyed getting to know the people, the traveling, and learning to play this game better. "
While walking six miles to work from Brooklyn to New York every morning (that is no typo), Jacquitta concentrates on her strengthening her word power. She is excited about Chicago and says, "I am looking forward to scoring as many bingos as I can!"
Stacia started playing SCRABBLE® at Club #28 in Brooklyn, directed by Alan Hecht and she also plays at Club #490. She plays weekly and enjoys the atmosphere and friends. She says, " SCRABBLE® keeps me moving, keeps my mind on track, keeps me a young 39, and keeps my husband asking when is the next tournament."
