Club Director: Evan Cohen

Week 03 - Season 42 - 7.10.2019

There were 22 of us last week. Welcome all!

Standings: In Aardvark, Linda and (the absent) Josh switched positions. In Madoqua, a new queen, as Natalie storms into the top spot with a huge +7 climb. There were ten shifters overall. In Zyzzyva, Mary is still queen, tied with Michelle on %, but ahead on the number of games.

Playoffs: Omri awaits Naomi for their best-of-five finals.

Word of the Season: A close vote, if ever there was one. Three words stood out. In third place, with 7 votes, MAQUETTES (Raquelle). In second place, with 8 votes, FORESKIN (Karen). But the winner with 9 vote is STEPMOMS (Gila B.). Well done, all!

Scores: Michel was the only record breaker with his highest ever score and best ever triple. There were two 500+ scores (Evan, Omri), two 1400+ triples (Omri, Evan), one 1300+ (Maureen), and two 1200+ (Phyllis, Janis). Not too bad.
