(June 6, 2021) Ten of us played on Sunday night. It’s the first time we’ve only had one big division, so despite the fact that we’ve been playing more than a year like this, many played opponents that they had never played before.


Andy (AGardner) was 3-2, with pretty bingoes like NIELLOS, CLEARLY, and ELUENTS. And he also played some messy bingoes like OILIEST and NASTIEST, with 8 bingoes in all. EXIST was good for 59. He was teasing 500 with his final 494 win.


Raina (raina726) opened her evening with a win vs. one of the very highly ranked opponents, and in addition to three bingoes, played a high-scoring non-bingo word WAXY for 72.


Kristy (abzurd) expressed a lot of appreciation for the online opportunities to play with our club, and she enjoyed a 4-1 record tonight, had a 568 game, and won her last game by one point! 9 bingoes must have helped tonight, with FUNKIER getting down 84 points.


Susan (Cruzan) was one game away from a perfect evening, with 8 bingoes contributing to those 4 wins. BEGORRA (71) is a mild oath, and takes a back H! But her highest-scoring bingo was DOZENTHS for 118, a double-double and the high play of the session!


Joe (uuuvvww) had a couple of nice wins, including a 504 game. EMENDERS looks like a strange one, but certainly good.  His double-double PREAMBLE was good for 102 points!


Mike B. (padremike) enjoyed two nice wins, plus lost one game by only one point! 4 bingoes for Mike: WEARIES, ETOILES, BASTING, and he scored the most with BITSIER for 83.


Leslie (Lmamabear) had a great night, with a 465 and a 406 game, and a 3-2 record. RETSINA, SOLVERS, and SECURES all helped, as did the non-bingo FIFTY for more than fifty (56.)


Lois (Layla6409) circled back from car-shopping to play with us this last time online. She played TEENIER and SWATHES, the latter being a verb, with SWATHS being a noun. See you in November, Lois!


Trish (quacks) had a tough pairing tonight but did get down bingoes like RACIEST and MEANIES. Thanks to Trish for getting us started with the virtual games more than one year ago!


Marty (Kahuna601) failed to lose a single game tonight! 11 bingoes! Unusual words (to me, anyway) were SCANDIUM, GALLIOT and GUNSELS. The non-bingo BORTZ was good for 78 and was the highest non-bingo play of the night. His 590 win was the highest scoring game as well!


Check out the newly-revised PowerPoint shows for the stems SALTER and ROASTED on the bingoes page of our website at


This evening will be the last of our scheduled online play as a group. We are so glad that many of you chose to play with us. Thanks to Jacob for his behind-the-scenes work of keeping stats and updating the website.


We all, I am sure, share high hopes that this very unusual time is mostly behind us. The Asheville club will be following whatever recommended guidelines are in place when we resume weekly play, currently planned for mid-July.  We have lots of time to see what transpires between now and our big annual tournament in November, and of course will follow guidelines at that time as well.


We hope to see many of you soon, one way or the other!
