LYNDA FINN ESTABLISHES THE FINN "VOWELS TO YOU" RULE

1st - Lynda Finn welcomed a "Win Like Finn" concept as she swept through her expert matches with a pristine 3-0 +75 record. A major part of her successful strategy is to leave only vowels for her opponents to draw in closing games when the scores are close.  : )

2nd - Thomas Reinke exploded a 611-322 game against Richard Lauder. including a very well timed triple-triple of QUALMIER for 212 points to conclude with a 3-1 +492 outing and 2nd place.

3rd - Charles Reinke also had a 3-1 finish, but only 194 in cume, 88 of them coming from his 443-355 win against brother Thomas in their 3rd round encounter. Charles was blindsided in his next game when he encountered the Finn "nothing but vowels" in his late game with her, losing his final game 418-432.

HARWINDER DOWD UNSCATHED IN INTERMEDIATES

1st - Harwinder Dowd went undefeated in all three of her games, to take the top spot in a group of six intermediate players.  Her friend Debi played two games at the club, getting an introduction to playing amongst the "veterans" gathered this night.

2nd - Sharlie Miura also was undefeated, winning both of her games with June and Debi to finish at 2-0 +219. Sharlie finished with a 404-258 game with newbie Debi.

3rd - Aki Miura's 1-1 -41 took the 3rd place position. Aki won a close game 296-240 with June Scott.
