Tournament Committee

In an endeavor to ease his time involved in sanctioning tournaments, and to add more player voices in the handling of issues, Tournament Committee Chair, Dallas Johnson, with the advice of current committee members, has named 4 new members to the committee: Dallas wrote:

”For the first time in my tenure on the NASPA Tournament Committee, we received more applicants than we have open positions, and we were impressed with the background and qualifications of all the candidates.

After consideration of all candidates, the committee has welcomed:

The committee would also like to thank Joe Edley for his long and faithful service to the committee. The committee is beginning a new process of greater committee member involvement in the tournament sanctioning process, which Joe understandably did not wish to participate in, as he was solely responsible for sanctioning SCRABBLE tournaments for many years. We are grateful to Joe for his leadership and example.”
