THOMAS REINKE ROLLS ONWARD

THOMAS REINKE TOPS FIELD WITH 4-1 +583

1st - Thomas Reinke suffered only a glancing blow from Gail Salm's 343-337 win agin him as he piled up a massive 583 cume points and four victories to take top honors tonight. In his closing win of 398-353 with Peter Schmiedicke, Thomas played bingoes of LOUDENS and LOUDENED, a cute combo from a person who knows quite a bit about "TWIN" like conditions.

2nd - Twin Charles Reinke also stumbled once himself, when he too fell victim to a Gail Salm whose 421-406 game showed she could woman-handle both of the dynamic duo this night. Charles ended up at 3-1 +92 and in 3rd place in the club stats in this new season.

3rd- Peter Schmiedicke was immediately behind Charles with a 3-1 +91 effort. Peter was 3-0 before drawing Thomas in his last game of the night, and for the only time all night, Peter was held to just a single bingo (RECITERS) in that final game.

JUNE SCOTT SKATES TO A 1-1 +64 TOP SPOT

1st - June Scott took the top position in a field of three intermediates with her 357-270 win against Aki Miura. Aki is off now to Japan for the next two weeks so June will have her hands more full as the Intermediate group has been losing too many of its regulars just now. Any irregulars coming to rescue June?

2nd - Sharlie Miura also had a 1-1 evening, but a larger loss in one game left her with a minus -149 cume and a second place position.

3rd- Aki Miura, soon to be far far abroad, took 3rd of the 3rd players present with a 0-2 -214 outing.  We all wish him save travels and hope he and Sharlie will be back amongst us very soon indeed.
