CowTrophyCow Scrabble is a tournament where individuals and local business-sponsored teams compete against each-udder during four consecutive Scrabble games for points. Teams compete for the coveted Cow Scrabble trophy, Josephine, “Josie” and to be crowned the “Smartest Business in Town.” Currently, Josie resides with the reigning champs at The Powderhorn Café. It’s a moo year — where will this lovable bovine graze next?

This exciting afternoon of game play will be a blast and will help raise ‘moo’lah for our libraries! To become a business sponsor team, or register as an individual player, contact JCLI Development Coordinator Rebecca Stoltz, 541-476-0571 x114.
