(January 12, 2020) 18 players at club in Asheville this Sunday! Good crowd! And fairly civil! Welcome to John W. who drove up the mountain from Marion, had a nice win over a more-experienced player, and placed ZOO carefully for 67 points. Several bingoes for John, who says “I will be back” and we believe him! Raina played INITIAL for 65 and also got 57 for QUINCE. Mike B. had a big 408 win at the end of the day, and found HISSIES for 81.

 

Kurt had two nice wins today, playing UNDRESS (75) and REVOKES for 82. Lia found GUESSED for 67. Bob started his afternoon with a win, and played APPOINT for 73. Leslie was 2-1 today, scoring 420 with one of those wins, and playing ETESIAN and STASHED. Rumor has it that Leslie has the high non-bingo play of the day with the word OWE for 69, which must have had amazing placement with the making of several other words as well.

 

Xander (3-3) had 11 bingoes, and played the very interesting non-bingo COTIJA, apparently a new word from NWL2018, and although a noun and a type of Mexican cheese, does NOT take an S plural! Donna won half her games, but would have been 3-1 were it not for her high loss of 403, and of her 8 bingoes, the most unusual was the chemical compound  BENOMYL for 72. I would have been 2-2 today except for my ONE POINT LOSS. Grrr* is not a word.


Vince won half his games, had a 430 win, played 4 bingoes, and seemed to be having a good time. Mike L. had a winning (3-2) record today, and of his four bingoes, REDLINE was the most interesting. Aaron (3-3) won half the time, and his 10 bingoes included the singleton TEOPANS, SOMITES, and KINDLER.

 

Who plays faster than Ruchi? Well, NO ONE at our club! Ruchi was 5-2 today, with 11 bingoes, and if I am reading correctly, she played three in a row for what we like to call “bingo-bango-bongo.” Jacob was 4-2, with 7 bingoes, including FETTLES for 90 and SHEENIES (65) but worth more because I challenged it. Good!

 

Glenn only lost once, teased 500 with his 493 win, and of his 9 bingoes in just 4 games, his SWINGER was good for 105 points. Bing had a great day with her 4-1 record and 6 bingoes. Undefeated? Mark (4-0) had the high win of the day with a 563 game, a really high non-bingo play with EJECT for 67, and 7 bingoes. 


We are getting a great start as a club in 2020, so let's all work together to make this the best year ever!
