Canadian Wins Worlds

Posted by Paul S on Fri November 12, 1999 at 0h00

We at Club #374 would like to congratulate Canadian Joel Wapnick for winning the 1999 World Scrabble® Championship. He defeated England's Mark Nyman three games to one in the best of five final after placing 1st in regular play. Canadian team members also placed 3rd and 4th, doing us proud!

We would also like to congratulate our own Albert Hahn who did well in a very strong field. Albert went an even 12-12, -48, to place 53rd of 98 players. This is a very respectable result and we are all proud of Albert for representing Western Canada so well.
