A3.   Roster of clubs in the US and Canada


The reader is referred to the the National Scrabble Association's
official roster, <http://www.scrabble-assoc.com/clubs/roster.htm>,
which is being kept quite current.  The listing maintained here from
1993 to 1999 may be reformulated to provide supplemental information.

Club numbers were assigned in order of formation, starting with No. 1
in 1975; another hundred clubs were added by 1980, 1982, 1987, 1993
and 1997.

A4.   Upcoming North American tournaments


Please see the improved official NSA tournament listing, which
<http://www.scrabble-assoc.com/tourneys/calendar.htm>, which finally
is a workable substitute for this one, maintained on Usenet since
1993 and the Web since 1994.  This will be used for supplemental
information, since corporate strictures keep the NSA site from
linking to outside sites.


Players must be members of NSA to play in their second and succeeding
tournaments.  A player whose rating is within 100 point of its cutoff
generally may play in a higher division, subject to the needs of the
tournament.
