Levels and, how-tos of sponsorship
The regular rules of Scrabble are followed, but each game has a 30-minute time limit. Teams of up to four players, collaborating to create a word from the same letter tray, compete in a round-robin format for three rounds. A table with one Scrabble board seats two four-player teams and an official timekeeper. The team that scores the highest number of points is the champion for their division.
Players are asked to obtain pledges to sponsor their participation in the tournament (similar to a bike-a-thon or walk-a-thon). The minimum for a team to participate is $60.00, or $15.00 per participant. There are prizes for the players who raise the most money for Literacy Volunteers. We also have refreshments, raffles and wonderful door prizes. Teams who raise $200 or more receive free Scrabble Fest t-shirts.
Top fund raisers are awarded special prizes such as an inlaid wooden table by a local craftsman, as well as other wonderful prizes donated by local businesses and individuals. Top fundraisers for the event receive prizes.
