Yea we'd have beaten it by a good margin. Everyone is keen to do it again though, although I doubt there'll be the professional video set-up we had.
Is there a Just Giving page?
Yep, took me a bit of working out to find it - I think it got set up late and it isn't explained very well:
Rotary Club of Paisley Trust Fund
There's a bit more detail here:
We are up and running with our live link to stream the Scrabble Challenge to you. You can donate online to The Rotary Club of Paisley, through JustGiving and your donation will be sent on to EndPolioNow, our main charity.

Attempt number 2, taking place at Norton Social Club (part of Norton Cricket Club) on 20th-21st April, starting at 6pm.
Facebook Page with all the details:
This time we're doing it for two charities, Daisy Chain and End Polio Now.
Nah after the farce of last time you've lost me. How hard is it to not collapse while playing scrabble? **** me.

Makes sense to have one charity that's more global in scope. I'm hoping for a lot of local interest and Daisy Chain is a very local community charity (if Chris Gayle got hold of one he could just about hit their buildings and farm from Norton's main cricket pitch), but there are obviously Scrabblers all over the planet and I can reach a lot of them. So both bases are covered.
The tricky part is getting Mattel's Facebook Page to mention it - they have the best part of 4 million likes. If they plug the live stream we're sorted - as long it doesn't crash that is.

It's all the bloody French words that get me. It's like we have practically their whole language included. This is the list of acceptable French words in English language Scrabble:

I mean yea they probably use FROTTAGE/FROTTEUR in London because they're bunch of wankers. But ffs.
