The Scrabble Showdown is the Oklahoma City Metro Literacy Coalition’s annual fundraiser.
Scrabble Showdown occurs every fall at Castle Falls Event Center. The fundraiser, an entertaining Scrabble tournament, is designed to raise awareness of the Coalition and the importance of literacy service in the community. This event celebrates the work done by literacy organizations around the metropolitan area.
This year there will be 3 levels of competition!
Novice – If you haven’t played Scrabble in years or you claim to be a horrible speller, this is the division for you. The Novice Division bends the rules, is more concerned about competition at the silent auction tables than across the board, and really knows how to put the “fun” in fundraiser!
Intermediate – This isn’t your first rodeo. If you dominate family game night or you’ve been playing in the Scrabble Showdown for a few years and want a taste of competition (but you aren’t quite ready for the big leagues), register to play in the Intermediate Division.
Advanced/Club – If you take the game of Scrabble very seriously and want some tough competition, join the members of the OKC Scrabble players club. The Advanced/Club Division follows the North America Scrabble Players Association tournament rules. Think we’re kidding? Check out this article published in The Oklahoman.
Everyone can play and have a good time! Assists, “cheat sheets,” and additional letters are available for purchase at the event.
Entry fee is $25.00 per person and includes food and drinks. Prizes are awarded to the top teams.
Spectator tickets can be purchased at the door and also include food and drinks. An extensive silent auction and drawings for prizes are held throughout the evening. Doors open at 5:00 and the games begin promptly at 6:00 p.m.
For more information, at [email protected], or call 405-830-2790. Tickets will be available July 18.
