No Loss for Words Here

Scrabble1No one was at a loss for words at Scarsdale Cub Scouts Pack 440 Scrabble Tournament on Sunday February 9 at Hitchcock Church. The event was held to raise funds to support pack activities, which are for elementary school boys and girls and their families. While a new event for the pack, it managed to draw a crowd of 20 parent-child teams and seven players in the adult category.

Each adult-child team played two 40 minute games, as did each single player. Top scorers won prizes donated by several members of the community. These included Alamo Drafhouse, Bareburger, Bowlmor, California Pizza Kitchen, Learning Express (Scarsdale), The Puzzle Parlour, River One River School of Art + Design, Scarsdale Pizza Station, and Squire Day Camp. Friends of the pack also donated season tickets to the Rangers and Yankees. The wordy winners were:

2nd place - Kate Simpson
3rd place - Lynda Roca
