The 2010 National SCRABBLE Championship will include for the first time an unrated Early Bird tournament. This tournament offers a playing opportunity to a group of players who can play in fewer SCRABBLE tournaments than others: NSC staff and other NASPA directors.

Results

Congratulations to Joel Sherman, winner of the first-ever National SCRABBLE Championship Early Bird, undefeated with a record of 3-0 +371. Joel received an extra event T-shirt for his win.

Thanks to all who participated in this inaugural event. Complete results are available online.
