Guinness Book of Records World Record Attempt

Siobhan O'Tierney, a fellow Glasgow Scrabble Club member , informed me last year
that she would like to raise money for charity by means of Scrabble. This has
culminated in our attempt to beat the current Guinness Book of World Records
total of 162,171 points scored in 24 hours by two players which was achieved by
Chris Hawkins & Austin Shin of England on 17/18 Aug 2002 in Milton Keynes,
Buckinghamshire. The attempt will be held under the auspices of Glasgow Scrabble
Club, ABSP, & the Rotary Club of Paisley to raise funds for the Rotary
International PolioPlus programme to eradicate polio worldwide, which is in its
30th year, at the Conference Suite of the Accord Hospice, 7 Morton Avenue,
Paisley, PA2 7BW.

Sponsorship/competition forms can be downloaded from the Rotary Club of Paisley
website at www.paisleyrotary.org.uk under Latest News.

For further information on PolioPlus go to
www.rotary.org/en/serviceand fellowship/polio

For every sum raised Bill Gates through the Bill Gates Foundation doubles the
amount & he was quoted this week as saying that polio should be eradicated
completely in 4 years time.

Hopefully you will find this a wothwhile charitable cause.
