Hilites (Wk 2 of 25 – 6/10/2015)
The second week of season 67 saw more playoff action. Kudos to Chani as winner of the A playoffs. She will face David Spolter in the best-of-5 club championship series. Liran and Cecily continue to lead the B1 and B2 incomplete playoffs, respectively. See table below.
Wendy managed to score high win, high loss and high triple (in A), while winning only one game. I’ll let her explain.
We welcome back young Sara Rosenbaum after an absence of a year in a foreign land. She drops the average age of our club by 12 years. Now, if we could just get Elana and her baby to start coming regularly…..
I wish to thank Lee, Zev and Wendy who are helping me with much of the routine weekly director’s work (due to some family commitments which severely limit my time these days).
WOWs – ORPIMENT (DavidS), BOUNTIED (Hazel), RIPPABLE (Wendy)
Runners up – SUNROOM (Susan), BLUEFISH (Josh), BRIGAND (Queene), HOSPITAL (Hilda)
No phonies reported! Due to laziness? A sudden moral awakening?
