Back to School Scrabble (NOT!)

  • Sep 6, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Barb has invited us to her house in Olmsted Township to celebrate the end of summer and the fact that most of us do NOT have to go back to school!  Yay!

Barb will get a ham and some buns while the rest of us bring sides, snacks and desserts to share.

Bring your own beverage; alcohol is permitted.  

Exact address and directions will be coming soon only to those who are coming. No one reminded me at our Summer Solstice Scrabble at Chris' about the other contests I promised so we will try again to see who can win free scrabble nights for six months!  Someone better help keep me honest!  I'm getting old and the memory ain't what it used to be!!  LOL!

DON'T FORGET!  Bring your own beverage.

REMINDER:  This group is all about relaxing and enjoying our favorite word game. While we follow most conventions as written by Hasbro/Parker Bros., we do not play by tournament rules and have our own way of "Challenging".  We allow that famous word list.  And when in doubt, the 4th Edition Scrabble Dictionary is the ultimate answer.  However we DO NOT approve of putting all your letters in your electronic device and letting it form your words for you.  Please come and relax and have fun! 

Any questions, please ask.

    The game will be at 1 Sunrise Blvd. Olmsted Twp. If coming off of I-480 take the 252 S exit (NOT toward Great Northern Mall). This is Columbia Road. Take Columbia Road to 7100 Columbia Rd on the right. It is the light after John Road. (by the Family Dollar store... it's Parkway Drive) Turn right down the drive to the gatehouse and tell them you are going to 1 Sunrise. Proceed on Parkway Dr to Crabapple Ln and turn right. At the end of Crabapple Ln turn left on to Brookins Dr. Follow Brookins Dr as it curves to the right and you will see the park office. Just past the park office on the left will be the corner of Brookins and Sunrise. That is 1 Sunrise. My home has a streetlight and is on the corner. There is plenty of street parking side and front. Feel free to use either door.

    I was running a little late...and then I got lost! I ended up in Olmsted Falls at 7:30 pm and figured I didn't want to wander around any more. Sorry?! I obviously don't have a GPS! But I know where Rubin's is, so I'll be there next month!

    Oh, darn it! I was in a minor car accident Tuesday morning and am still feeling the effects of whiplash and fibromyalgia/arthritis pain. I have to bow out for this evening. So sorry, Barb! I'll miss everyone and will plan to join you all the next time!

    Cool address, I live at 456 Secret Street! I wonder who lives at 789 Secret Street? No worries, I will head out to the Sunrise Blvd this evening. I will then leave well after the sun sets.

    BOO - HOO !!! :(
    My work wants us working overtime on Saturday - the fiscal year ends this month. We are expected to put in a full day, which leaves me zero time to get all my personal things I do over the weekend accomplished. I have to cancel for Scrabble :( :(
    I was sooooooooo looking forward to it. I will miss everyone ! Have Fun ! ~ Val

      Likely story, Val. You're just intimidated by the fierce competition!! ;)

    I'll bring a veggie/fruit tray for nibbling...hope no one minds the quickie store-bought kind. My kitchen and I are not on a first-name basis!

  • Joyce

    I will bring a broccoli salad and a dessert of bite sized sweets.

    1 · September 4, 2014

  • Lisa

    My vote is for the potatoes. I'm not sure what I'll bring yet.
    Guess what? I may actually be going back to school!

    • Lisa

      Oh, and I may as well bring a dessert. What would you like, Barb? No, not that. Not that either. Try again. :)

      September 1, 2014

  • Callie

    I'm debating between a three-bean salad or scalloped potatoes. Mmmm. Both sound good.

    Bringing guacamole and chips.

    Apparently the new 5th edition dictionary is in high demand. Got this status from Amazon.com today. With luck I'll have it just in time for Barb's house next week.

    Well, I was going to ask what the contest was, but I didn't want to be greedy...

    Also, 123 Secret Street? This is so cloak and dagger.
