THIS WEEK AT THE CLUB…
*** End of Season 71: Wk 25 of 25 – April 15, 2018 ***
- Congrats to SEASON 71’s DIVISION CHAMPS — DavidS, Yehuda and Yaakov. Playoff qualifiers in Division A are Wendy, Shmuel, Aryeh and DavidL. Jonathan and Rita will return to B1 for a spell. Playing in Division B1’s playoff qualifiers are Taffy, Bernard, Pamela and Elaine. The four top finishers in B2 will play in Division B1 in Season 72: Yaakov, Queene, May and Asher. Rose, JudyM, RuthO and Hilda will enjoy a well-deserved rest in B2, no doubt temporarily. § A cautionary tale is told by a close game between the two Davids this week…involving a member of a city senate in the Roman Empire. The Roman senator is a DECURION, a word that DavidL knew but missed with a rack that spelled D-E-C-U-R-?-N and an open O on the board. He played off his C, picked an I, then saw his elegant bingo and played it…but he went on to lose the game by a scant 15 points. § After celebrating 35-point plays last week to honor the Club’s 35th birthday, the focus this week was 70-point words, to honor Israel’s 70th birthday. There was three such scores recorded — the aforementioned DECURION, PLOTTER, BRAVEST, played by DavidL, DavidS and Hilda, respectively. § Joel Elkins of Los Angeles and Donna Neumark of San Francisco both joined us this week, as always when they are in Jerusalem. Joel could only fit in two games, going from the Club to board his plane back. § Next week’s session is our 35th Anniversary Celebration, and will meet at the Zipori Center in the Jerusalem Forest. (Anyone who needs a ride should contact Roger — firstname.lastname@example.org). We begin at 5.45 pm with dinner, followed by three games (playoffs to be delayed to the next session). § Until then…the Club wishes all its members and players…
A JOYOUS ISRAEL INDEPENDENCE DAY!
