Team Tournament 1999
Final Results

Noncash prize winners were awarded prizes--Hasbro games (new Deluxe SCRABBLE, standard SCRABBLE, Travel SCRABBLE, and Pictionary), bags of SCRABBLE goodies (thimble, gum, and pin), and a Christmas tile bag (made by Judy Horn)--and they were called up by random draw (to equalize the distribution of prizes).

We tried to spread the wealth by limiting the prizes to one per person. It mostly worked, but some people slipped through and got two! :)
