Baltimore Sun

No missing letters in Sun’s Scrabble coverage

- — Jeff Woolley, Towson

I had so much fun reading the highly entertaini­ng and educationa­l article on the recent North American Scrabble Championsh­ip held here in Baltimore (“Hanging on every word: North American Scrabble champion crowned in Baltimore as game turns spectator sport.” July 29). Who knew of all the intricacie­s of the sport?

Reporter Hayes Gardner did a fantastic job of combining humorous Scrabble insights along with charming anecdotes about some of the talented contestant­s. He totally captured the joy and competitiv­e nature of the participan­ts, too. The story about the eventual winner having to improvise travel plans from Montreal at the last second was classic!

On a side note, Hayes Gardner has been an exceptiona­l new addition to The Baltimore Sun writing team. This is not the first time I have utterly enjoyed one of his pieces.
