What: Oregon Literacy's 2nd Annual Scrabble Tournament

Why: To promote awareness for literacy and to raise funds for Oregon Literacy

Where: McMenamins Kennedy School Gym, 5736 N.E. 33rd Ave., Portland

When: October 1, 2006 from 1:00 pm - 4 pm

Who: You and any other Scrabble players!

Oregon Literacy, Inc. invites you to participate in our Second Annual Scrabble Tournament on October 1st, from 1:00 - 4:00. The venue for this fun and lightly competitive tournament is perfect: McMenamins Kennedy School! Beverages of all types and pizza will be made available for purchase right in the Gym, which is where the event takes place.

The suggested donation for an individual to register is $25 and for a team it is $50. Prizes will be awarded! Teams are made up of 2 players and if you do not have a teammate don't worry - we will pair you up with another like-minded individual.

Two games will be played during the afternoon each lasting about an hour, with a break between games. Scores will be calculated as the average game score for each competing pair. Prizes will be awarded to the team with the highest average score and more! The rules will be the same as the National Scrabble Association rules. As well, we will be using the Fourth Edition Scrabble Dictionary. (Please note that we reserve the right to modify these rules if tournament players and staff are in agreement. After all, it is just a charity event.)

Walk-in registrations are welcomed, but seating is limited to a first come, first served basis.

Also, please join us for our Texas Hold 'Em Poker Tournament on October 21st at the Flying M Ranch. It will be another fun-filled evening of game playing and great prizes! Please contact Jon Toorock for more information.

We are also actively seeking businesses to sponsor the event, which will draw over 100 people. An excellent team-building opportunity, companies will receive appropriate recognition and be allowed to enter one team for every $100 worth of sponsorship they offer. (Of course, sending the team is optional.) Recognition varies with sponsorship levels, but included can be logos at the event, on our website, and in our statewide newsletter. More details are available. If you have questions or are interested in sponsoring our worthwhile events please contact Jon Toorock at jon@oregonliteracy.org or 503-244-3898.
