Through the CNY Scrabble Club, Carney hopes to create more opportunities for people to play Scrabble face-to-face. All are welcome to join by going to www.facebook.com/groups/cnyscrabble, signing up for the group’s listserv at groups.google.com/group/cny-scrabble, or showing up to meetings the first and third Sunday of the month, same time and place as the first meeting.
“I know you can play Internet Scrabble at any hour of the day, but it’s not the same as playing an in-person game,” Carney said.
The CNY Scrabble Club’s next meeting is at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 16, at DeWitt Community Library. Players are encouraged, though not required, to bring their own board.
