Having fun and winning cash are the twin goals of a SCRABBLE tournament this Saturday.
Doors open at 8am at Radez School in Richmondville, and the tournament starts at 9.
Teams can be two to four players, at least 16 years old, and the deadline to sign up is 5pm Thursday.
There will be a warm-up game followed by three SCRABBLE games, all with different rules. Total scores from the three games determine the winners.
The top team wins $200, and the next three win $100 each. One team will be drawn from the remainder, and it will win $100.
There’s also a giant raffle, trivia contests with prizes and a free buffet breakfast provided by Justine’s of Cobleskill.
The tournament ends with an awards ceremony at 11:30am.
The tournament is a major fundraiser for Literacy New York, which teaches adults how to read in Fulton, Montgomery and Schoharie Counties.
