Welcome to the East County Scrabble Meet Up! Alec and I host the meet ups at our home in Santee. We usually try to hold them once month (sometimes more) and announce the dates in advance so everyone has time to plan. We love Scrabble and enjoy playing with others......it's a friendly meet up so there's no cut throat playing here! We have all levels of players and we do allow use of "cheat sheets", Scrabble dictionaries, and helping each other out (but those are all your choice to use or not). However, we do have a few more serious players who like to play challenge games and those are always available too. It's all about playing a game we all love and having fun socializing in the mean time. If this sounds like something you'd enjoy, please join our group and come out to an event. We'd love to have you!
Instead of charging a fee to help offset the organizer fees, we just ask that everyone bring some type of snack to share, albeit chips, desserts, whatever..... (with the exception of alcohol - we have kids and would like that left at home) and bring a board if you have one!! We usually need them!
As a general policy, we don't allow members to bring children to the meet ups. However, we do have a few special occasions during the year that we ask you to bring them, such as our Scrabble Anniversary BBQ and New Year's Eve Meet up.
Last but not least, we do have pets that are out of the way for the event, but in case you have allergies, you might want to check with us. We haven't had a problem yet, but as a precaution, we wanted to let you know.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us! We looking forward to meeting you and playing some Scrabble!
Take care, Dawn and Alec
P.S. You might notice that our meet ups are full, or fill up quickly when they are announced. That does not mean you won't get in. People RSVP far in advance and plans change which opens up spots to come. We've had very long waitlists and everyone has gotten in, so don't let that scare you away! If we are full, please add your name to the waitlist!
