For the first time in its new location at 4 West Lafayette Street in downtown Trenton, Classics held its 13th Annual Scrabble Invitational, where the top 16 players from 2012 met to battle it out for the title of Grand Champion!
After a rousing America the Beautiful, non-lip synched by Trentonian Cherry Oakley (as befits all great sporting events), and after 5 consecutive rounds of play, the winner was determined. Last year’s Grand Champion, Trentonian Megan Iurilli and number-one seed, Trentonian Eric Maywar, failed to make the final four.
The winners were
- Tim Walker in 4th Place
- 2-time Grand Champion Bruce Gross in 3rd Place.
- 4-time Grand Champion Daniel Robinson in 2nd Place
- and the 2012/1013 and Current Grand Champion is Barbara Keogh!
Scrabble is played at Classics every Friday from 6:30 to midnight at 4 West Lafayette. All skill levels are welcome.
