== [[NSC]] Questions ==
# How do you justify raising everyone’s fees to pay for the elite few who can attend the National SCRABBLE Championship? <br /> We don’t, because it’s not true. [[Chris Cree]] signed the six-figure contracts necessary for a Players Championship
to be held in Dayton in August 2009, long before we ever heard of NASPA. [[Hasbro]] has kindly allowed us to rename the event the National SCRABBLE Championship, but the budget remains unchanged and is similar to that of the 2007 PC.# Is NASPA subsidizing the 2009 National SCRABBLE Championship in Dayton? <br /> No. This year's NSC is a self-sustained event, although it will receive limited sponsorship from Hasbro and a few other organizations. The Dayton NSC will pay full tournament participation fees to NASPA.
# Where and when is the 2010 NSC? <br /> The 2010 NSC will be at the [http://www.intercontinental.com/dallas InterContinental Hotel in Dallas] August 7–11, 2010. We have a two-year contract; the 2011 NSC will be at the same location.
# How was the 2010–2011 location chosen? <br /> The venue submitted the best bid in a nationwide search conducted by an independent agency. No other venue came even close to matching their price and terms. No personal preferences were factors in the consideration.
