High Play Rules:

  • Main word of the play must be acceptable in the lexicon played in that division.
  • Applies retroactively. Words played before the prize was announced are eligible to be entered.
  • Entries must be logged on the High Play sheets located on the resource tables in each division, in order to be considered for the prize.

Class Prize Notes:

  • The WESPA Class Prize will be awarded to the highest-finishing player in the CSW division who has not played in the CSW division at the NSC previously. Should a player win both the $500 class prize and another place or class prize, the player will be awarded the larger of the two prizes (but not both prizes).
  • Eligibility for Class Prizes in the Collins Division is as follows:
    • Initial rating of 1400-1799 eligible for Class B Prizes
    • Initial rating of 1100-1399 eligible for Class C Prizes
    • Initial rating of under 1100 eligible for Class D Prize
  • Eligibility for Class Prizes in the TWL Divisions is as follows:
    • Initial rating in the second third of the division eligible for Class B Prizes
    • Initial rating in the third third of the division eligible for Class C Prizes

For the purpose of determining initial ratings for class prize eligibility, players with WESPA ratings but no NASPA ratings will be assigned to classes based on their most recent available WESPA ratings.

Special Prize:

  • The Rose Award - plaque
