Notes: Chris writes: "I am a Christian who happens to be a computer programmer living and working in Cambridge ON. Originally from England, I came to Canada in 1990, and became a SCRABBLE® player in 1996 shortly after John Robertson and Su Edwards founded the Golden Triangle SCRABBLE® Club in Cambridge. Formerly known as 'The Huddersfield Mangler', my online name changed from 'Huddersmangler' to 'gospell'."
