I'm going to be a Scrabble tournament (maybe)

As a few of you know, I've been playing competitive Scrabble of late. I'm getting pretty good at the rules of the game, although the time clock and some weird little words mess me up. I was all excited to play in my first tournament on March 21st which is being sponsored by my local club. However, I found out there's a conference on the solidarity economy (which means neighbors helping neighbors without govt. input). I'm really into this concept. What do I choose? I've always been a kind of work first person, and I figure it's not like I'll miss the whole conference. I'll only miss one day. So I'm thinking about playing Scrabble and then going to the conference for the rest of the weekend. What should I do? Is it okay sometimes to put fun ahead of politics? It's not like my participation is dire and no one is going to care very much if I go or not. Still, I would like some advice.

..well, for me, I would go for pleasure first before work since that is also a very important thing for you.. The things you missed can be covered by asking your neighbors about the things that they were able to talk about during the day. Good luck.
