THIS WEEK AT THE CLUB…
*** Final Standings: Season 70: Wk 25 of 25 – Oct. 17, 2017 ***
- The SOSJC played in its 1750th session this week, ending our 70th season. Our average attendance for the season was 43.56, down from 48.76 in season 69. This was due to some of more veteran players’ absences due to illness and to the departure of some of our younger players. Nonetheless , we played 1,623 games. Winners averaged 398.86 ppg and losers 324.74…….David Spolter again finished first in A, surpassing several club records in the process. He won the most ever games in a season 66 (191 points), scored the most points ever in a season, 33,863, and tied SamO for most seasons with 60+ wins (3). David was so far ahead of the pack that the second-place finisher (Shmuel) had a smaller differential in points (78) from 16th place than he did from first-place David (101) pts. Perhaps unfortunately for David, there is no higher division than A into which to advance him…..….Playoff qualifiers in A are Shmuel, Wendy, Zev and Dahlia. Peta will serve as an alternate……….Roger led the whole way in B1 and will return to A division. Playoff qualifiers in B1 are Joel, Pamela, Rita and Elaine……Rose won the B2 championship and is elevated to B1, along with second-place finisher RuthO. There will be no playoffs in B2……..(The number of players to be relegated from B1 to B2 (as announced early in season 70) will be announced in the next week or so. Due to the departure of some players form the club, the number may be adjusted from what was earlier announced.)
- It’s also time again to thank several folks for their help in making my job as director possible. The entire club membership (almost) was cooperative, helpful and encouraging at every stage. In particular, Wendy (highlights and everything else), Lee and Zev (pairings and data management), Chani (Scrabble School), Josh (website) and Hilda and Susan (treasurers) were of great help.
The club extends its sincere condolences to Peta on the passing of her mother , a”h, between Yom Kippur and Sukkot. Peta sat a short shiva in Australia.
At the same time we wish Peta a mazal tov on the engagement of her daughter, of which she was informed during club play last night. We wish her much nachat and nechama.
