3rd in Edmonton

Wonderful trip to Edmonton, especially enjoyed the complementary breakfast buffet at the Chateau Louis.

Nice to see a good friend, Mike Ebanks finish 1st in Div 1, and Peter Maas finish 1st in Div 2. I finished 3rd in Div 1, but got extra prizes for high game of 566 and a record of 29 bingos in 14 games.

2nd in Calgary

I finished 2nd in the Scrabble tournament in Calgary recently.

I got to play the top seeded player, my friend Eric, 4 times and went 2-2. It was a nice tournament because I achieved my peak rating to date, 1550. And winning $130 is always nice.

I have another tournament coming up this weekend in Edmonton, and am excited to be going to Montreal for a tournament at the end of May. I'll visit my friend Shane and see the city a little. And I can play in the top division and will likely get paired against two former world champions in Scrabble, Adam Logan and Joel Wapnick.
