Peter Ashurst - Treasurer elect

Peter Ashurst

Having watched the TV programme showing the 1991 World Championships, Peter began playing the game on the computer. A few months later he wrote to Spears to find out about Scrabble Clubs and from there started to attend Preston Scrabble in April 1991.

One of the Preston members had a copy of Onwords which detailed tournaments and the APSP. He then joined the APSP in 1993 and entered the tournament scene at the 1993 BMSC. Since then he has entered numerous tournaments all over the country regularly clocking up over 200 rated games a year.

Peter is a member of Preston and Whitefield Scrabble clubs, but work commitments limit his attendance of the Preston club. Over previous years he has helped run several small local tournaments and more recently been computer operator at some tournaments.

Peter is a chartered quantity surveyor and outside interest include watching motor racing and ice hockey and several US TV series, mostly CSIs. He also has a large collection of jigsaws of varying sizes, which can take up too much time.
