With the coronavirus pandemic still affecting the daily lives of so many of us, the Championship Committee has concluded it would be both unwise and irresponsible to move forward with this summer’s event. '''We are, therefore, canceling the 2020 North American SCRABBLE Championship (NASC).'''
 
  
Those of you who have registered have the option to be issued a refund or to roll your registration over to next year’s event, which we do plan to hold in Baltimore.
