Vancouver, BC, Canada is the site of the 2010 Winter Olympics, but did you also know it is the site of the
9th Annual Vancouver Scrabble Tournament? The Scrabble tournament will be held the first week of March, so most of the tourism around the Olympics will be only a past memory.
My registration is set, hotel accommodations reserved, and extra studying for the games has commenced. The previous link will lead you to "Important Words to Increase Your Score". Basic Scrabble Word Lists can be accessed here.
These are the sites my friend Darlene and I will be visiting while in Vancouver:
Vancouver Art Gallery
Chinatown and great cuisine
If time permits, I'd love to visit The HandMaiden Fine Yarn: they have several outlets in Vancouver. One can never have too much fiber in their stash!
