The NASPA North American Scrabble Championship will be held in New
Orleans July 21-16, 2017. About one week later, there will be the
2017 WGPO Word Cup Tournament in Springfield, MA, which is a national
championship for that organization. WGPO is the Scrabble association
begun by players who were dissatisfied with NASPA. WGPO membership
is required, but it is free. Tourney ratings for WGPO are separate
from NASPA ratings.

The WGPO Word Cup Tournament, featuring 31 games, will be July 29
through August 2, 2017, and will be the first "nationals" in our
area since the NSA championship in Providence in 2000. There are
3 OWL divisions and a Collins division. A PDF form with details
and entry information is available at:
  wordgameplayers.org/brochures/Word_Cup_7.pdf
There may be a tour of Merriam-Webster in Springfield on July 28.
