All Meetings CANCELED and Club ON HIATUS Until Further Notice

Post date: Mar 13, 2020 5:19:53 PM

The Orlando Scrabble Club is going on an indefinite hiatus, effective immediately. All club meetings are canceled until further notice.

We will resume meetings when it is safe to do so.

We did not make this decision lightly. We came to this conclusion after monitoring the local and national situation related to the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). Of particular note for us:

  • Cases of COVID-19 are beginning to be reported in central Florida, and more are likely coming

  • Playing Scrabble involves close quarters and the sharing of tiles, tile bags, and other equipment

  • We have many players who are in high-risk groups

At this time, we believe it is important to prioritize health and safety over the playing of a board game.

Important updates will be communicated via email, the club website, and the club Facebook page.

Until we see you next:

Please stay safe, follow the advice of local and national authorities, and... WASH YOUR HANDS frequently!
