(February 23, 2020) 15 Scrabblers played at Stephens-Lee on a unseasonably warm and sunny afternoon in Asheville! Welcome to Jason, in school in the Black Mountain area, who knocked out a 475 win finding words like RANTING and INNOVATE.

 

Kurt found TARRIES for 70 and has done some great work with a list of unusual four-letter K words. Thanks, Kurt!   Lia found POSTING for 61 and LOOSENS for 68. Bob started off his afternoon with a win, and is saving his bingoes for next week. Leslie enjoyed a mid-afternoon win, and thanks to Leslie and David for the wonderfully-baked cupcakes!

 

I was 2-2, with one game over 400, and the bingoes STERNER (86) and NATIONAL for 64. Christine won half her games today, with huge scores like 456 and 498, and high scoring non-bingoes like MINX (55), HAJ (58) and WORDY for 53. Trish was 2-1 today finishing with a nice 401 score and playing TWINGES and WONTONS. D won half her games and among her several bingoes was DOTTING, a double-double for 96 and the highest scoring bingo of the day!

 

Xander had a winning record, found 7 bingoes including DIORITE, which always sounds like a Cola drink to me. Xander had a win over the highest rated player at club today, and played the highest-scoring non-bingo with SAX for 64!

 

Aaron (3-2) played DIATRON, ALEXINS, and the vowel-rich GAIETIES along with several other bonus words. Jay also had a winning record, a 421 game, and words like DENTIST, GRASPED, and CANINES. Hey, I think I can use all of those in one sentence! Mike B. was 3-1 and found ENGORGE, OILIEST, ROUSTING, and STOOLED.

 

Mark (4-1) only had one loss, and that one loss was the highest-scoring loss of the day at 374. Mark played  ten bingoes in 5 games, somehow got 62 points for PACS! Undefeated? Jacob was 4-0 including the high win of the day with a 537 game, and ten bingoes including RESOJETS for 94! Congrats, Jacob!


Just reflecting back, I must say I really miss some folks that I have played Scrabble with in the past. Although some are not playing Scrabble any longer for a variety of reasons, I hope to see some others again, some time in the future!
