Effective immediately, I am suspending Mississauga Scrabble Club in-person weekly meetups until further notice. The session for Thursday, March 12 will be cancelled, and the situation will be continuously assessed.
- We will resume when it is safer from a public health perspective, and also when it is more comfortable. Meetups full of doubt and concern would not be as enjoyable. Many doctors are warning the community that it is worse and riskier than we think, both to ourselves and others.
- Instead of weekly meetups, a biweekly teleconference will take place starting March 19. The purpose of the teleconference will be to focus on how to make Scrabble activities better than ever upon its continuation and well into the future. Details on how to connect to the teleconference to follow.
- We will also immediately investigate ways to foster and improve online play such that the elements of human interaction, welcoming new players, fairness and friendliness are encouraged, especially in the case that the present crisis persists.
Temporarily cancelling Scrabble club might be disappointing to many of you, and probably seem *overboard* to others. But let\’s see this as an opportunity to improve the health and wellbeing of our club long into the future.
