Spotlight on Art

posted Sep 13, 2019, 7:36 PM by Orlando Scrabble   [ updated Sep 13, 2019, 7:39 PM ]

Club codirector Art Moore is the subject of an in-depth profile in the current issue of NASPA News, the newsletter of the North American Scrabble Players Association. 

The article is a fitting and very well-deserved tribute to Art, who does so much for our club, for NASPA, and for the game. 

Thanks and kudos, Art!
