14 Games, likely two divisions.
Entry Fee $50.00
Dictionary: TWL18 (CSW21 by consent, game by game basis)
CSW21 may be used on a game by game basis, but only if both players agree. Otherwise TWL18 will be used. All games will be rated by WGPO as TWL, regardless of the lexicon chosen. To avoid disputes, players must mark the LEXICON = TWL or CSW on the tally slip, and both players must initial it. If the lexicon is not marked, and a dispute arises, the game will be assumed to be in TWL18.
The Challenge rule will be double-challenge for TWL, and the 5-pt rule for CSW.
Two computers will be provided to adjudicate challenges, one for TWL one for CSW.
Players will be required to be double vaccinated (and show proof) as of Mar 15th 2023. There is no option to provide a negative Covid test, as mandated by WGPO and Calgary Scrabble Club policies. Also MASKS must be warn at all times.
For more information please see our previous article Covid Protocol for play at WHGG.
Here is the list of WGPO Entrants, but to be added to the list and to play in the tournament, you must sign up and join WGPO. Please do so before the tournament.
Note: In the event that a tournament is cancelled,
it may be preferrable to change the name from
'Winter Tournament' to 'Winter Tournament - cancelled'
and post some info as to why an event is cancelled. If an event
is deleted instead, people may assume it is still happening
but it is just not listed on the website. So please be sure you
really want to delete this tournament. You cannot recover
Also, please do not delete past tournaments. It is
very useful for players and future organizers to do planning based
on previous years' schedules. Tournament entries should never be
deleted just because a tournament has happened. They should only
be deleted if an erroneous touranent was posted that never should
have been posted in the first place.
