Notes by Club Director Carol Dustin

Club History

The Twin Cities SCRABBLE® Club has existed since 1976.  It was started by a married couple named Dan and Robin Proud, and is one of the oldest SCRABBLE® clubs in existence.  The club is officially recognized as club #42 by the National SCRABBLE® Association (NSA). When I started attending the club in 1987, it was meeting only twice per month, on Friday nights at the Proud home in north Minneapolis.  During my first year there, I offered to keep computerized statistics for the club. Back then, I lived just a few blocks from the Prouds', so somewhere along the way I started holding club sessions at my house on Fridays when the Prouds had other plans.  By 1989, they approached me about taking over the directorship. In 1992 we changed the meeting day to Tuesday and the sessions became weekly. We have met at many different locations over the years, and have been at our current location since 1998.  The Prouds continued directing local tournaments for several years and have recently moved to Wisconsin.

Where & When

We meet on Tuesdays and Thursday every week of the year (major holidays excepted).  See Where & When for locations and meeting times.
