This is the current Rogers Park (Chicago) Scrabble Club webpage.
The club meets every Wednesday from 5:30 – 7:30 pm at the Rogers Park Public Library, at
6907 N Clark St

Note: Because of the coronavirus the Scrabble group will NOT be meeting until further notice.

No registration is required for this meetup; it’s strictly drop-in. There are between 6 and 14 players on any given Wednesday.
If a public holiday falls on a Wednesday, we don’t meet. Such dates are noted on this webpage. The next such holiday will be Wednesday, December 25, 2019.
The library is three blocks from the Lunt Metra stop and six blocks from the Morse El stop. If driving, you can enter the (free) parking lot on the east side of the library from Farwell Ave. (Turn east from Clark onto Farwell, south of the library. Farwell runs one-way east. The parking lot is immediately on your left.) There are parking spaces available 90% of the time between 5:15 and 5:30.

Small free-will contributions (used for miscellaneous expenses and semi-annual parties) are accepted — if so inclined.
