Final Session of Season 68:  Wk 25 of 25 – 20/09/2016

THIS WEEK AT THE CLUB…

֎ The Club’s 68th season ended this week, with division champions Sara moving up to B1, Liran to A, and DavidS claiming his 14th Division A season title.   The Club championship and two further divisional promotions are still to be decided.   The playoffs will begin next week…. The rosters in A: Shmuel, Chani, DavidL, Ron…In B1:  Joel, Rita, Rena, JudyM….In B2:  RuthO, Elana, May, Peggy….֎  Aryeh and Dahlia played a contentious game this week, Dahlia challenging four times in the first six plays.   She gave up when her fourth challenge —TUCKINGS (plural of white lace or embroidery) — remained on the board, and Aryeh went on to win the game.  ֎ British-born Pini got away with the phony MOLLIED, which US-born Aviva knew as American street slang, meaning ‘destroyed in a contest.’  Alas, the dictionary didn’t know as much as Aviva, and Pini completely ‘mollied’ her, ending with a score of 580,  his highest ever.  ֎ Yaakov counted four orphans (seven-letter words with no place on the board) in a single game, and asks whether this is a Club record.  ֎ Taffy and Ron both enjoyed the rare pleasure of triple-triple plays — FLETCHER (a bow-and-arrow maker) and STAFFERS, respectively — and DavidL and DavidS both placed nine-letter bingos — MO[NE]TIZED for the former (which drew a challenge) and INTER[LA]PS (a form of overlaps) for the latter, played across a double-double. ֎   DavidL pulverized Wendy in the season’s final game with multiple bingos, but she had the small satisfaction of watching him agonize through his final rack: BCGSQVW!   ֎ Welcome to Ruth Isaacs, a new olah of 12 days vetek, on her first visit to the Club…….Our new season #69 and the New Year 5777 will be marked at next week’s session, so please arrive by 7:15 so we can drink a l’chaim together.

I must again thank several folks for their help in making my job as director possible. The entire club membership was cooperative, helpful and encouraging at every stage.  In particular, Wendy (highlights and everything else), Lee and Zev (pairings and data management), Josh (website) and Hilda and Taffy (treasurers) were of great help. Thank you all.   David.
