THIS WEEK AT THE CLUB…
*** Season 72: Wk 20 of 25 – September 11, 2018 ***
|A new Puzzle of the Week (POW) appears at the bottom of this page|
One engagement is rare in our mature Club, but last night, we celebrated not one, but two! Paul brought his fiancée Susan to meet us; and visiting Pini brought wine and nibbles, along with a promise that we’ll meet his bride when she comes to Israel. § It’s already clear, however, that she’s good for Pini. When he left for London a year ago, he was newly promoted to Division B1: this week, he won all three of his games, two of them against A players. § Steve’s record this week was less sterling, but he had the pleasure of putting down WALTZ/ZAX, the Z on a triple-word score, for a healthy 87 points. § It was David S, however, who was aflame this week, with his lowest game of the evening netting him 454 points. The others were 553 and 648 — this last topping his highest-ever Club score by a full 10 points. He inflicted a total 11 bingos on his sacrificial victims : VOTEABLE, ADAPTING, KAINITS (salts of potassium), WILIEST, FEATURED, ALIENOR, RETICLE, DINGIES, FILTERED, DECEASES and SHORTEN — helped on his way by several of them being challenged. § A reminder that next week, we meet on Thursday (Sep. 20).

The Rosh Hashana(h) puzzle
Is it spelled Rosh Hashana? Or Rosh Hashanah? It does not matter for the purposes of this puzzle, for it concerns the set of letters found in the English name of this holiday: AHNORS.
Which words contain ALL of these letters?
