DUE TO CORONA VIRUS AND PUBLIC-HEALTH RECOMMENDATIONS OF SOCIAL DISTANCING, IN-PERSON DENVER AND BOULDER SCRABBLE CLUB MEETINGS WILL BE SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

TUESDAYS: PERKINS RESTAURANT & BAKERY, 1995 S. COLORADO BLVD., 6:30 P.M.
Tuesdays are our official meetings, for which scores are recorded and stats are kept. Stat-keeping begins at 6:30 p.m., but players may come and play early. We will award small prizes for best word fitting a particular category (e.g. Halloween, Olympics, winter), or other objective accomplishments (e.g. highest-scoring loss, most bingos in a game).
The folks at Perkins are accommodating and gracious hosts. Please buy something from them, and tip your server! It's open all night, too, so while play usually doesn't go past 11 p.m., you're welcome to stay as long as you like.

ALL SUNDAYS: PANERA, 1855 29TH ST, BOULDER, CO 80301, NOON
Sunday sessions are held in the outskirts, every week in Boulder and two to three weeks in Littleton. These sessions are unrated and no prizes are awarded, but they are nonetheless fun and well attended. If you live south or north of Denver, this is a good way to get in competitive play without having to contend with I-25 on a weekday rush hour.
What to bring:
same as Tuesday sessions
