Hilites (Wk 16 of 25 – 7/15/14)


Attendance improved this week to 46 players, again despite the warnings of missile launches against many areas, including Jerusalem. Thanks to Wendy for running the session and for handling the pairings in Lee’s absence.  Three weeks from now Tisha B’Av falls on Tuesday, so our session will be rescheduled.  As soon as I have more details, I will notify everyone.  Welcome to first-time visitor, Aviva Luria.

In Div. A, David S gained a bit of ground over absent 2nd-place Zev, with the lead now 8 pts.  Rounding out the top five places are Ron, Peta & Wendy. Currently in jeopardy of relegation are Roz & Mia. In Div. B1, Joel B and 2nd-place Pamela paced each other, with the gap remaining at 10 pts.  Rounding out the top 5 places are Miriam, Alice & Nechama.  Currently in danger of relegation are Judy M. & Cilla. And in Div. B2, May and 2nd-place Sara also paced each other, with the lead remaining at 5 pts.  Lesley, Nina & Paul round out the top 5 spots.
