Week 10 - Season 40 - 10/12/2018

There were 28 of us last week. Welcome all!

Standings: In Aardvark, there were nine (!) shifters. After a slow start, Naomi managed to climb past Omri into 2nd. Phyllis was the biggest climber, up 2 into 5th. In Madoqua, Nancy still rules supreme. There were 8 shifters overall, nothing of much consequence. Janis and Allan, both up 4, were the biggest climbers. In Zyzzyva, a new queen, as Avril ousts Angela.

 

Playoffs: Phyllis won the Madoqua playoffs, beating Karen 3-1. Well done!

 

Scores: No records broken. Naomi had the only 500+. There was one 1300+ triple (also Naomi), and four 1200+ triples (Nancy, Miriam, Gila B., Joel). Pooh!

Player of the Week:  Phyllis had a great week, winning the Madoqua playoffs, winning all her games, and climbing into Aardvark?s 5th. Nancy had a good week too, winning three and increasing her lead ahead of the rest of Madoqua. The award, however, is Naomi?s. With three nice wins and good scoring, not to mention ousting Omri from Aardvark?s 2nd spot, Naomi is Player of the Week. Well done!
