Charles fitted with infamous Bullseye Jacket


1st - Charles Reinke's run extended to 10 straight as he tied brother Thomas for the club's Top Expert spot, both players now with identical 76.7% winning records, and 46 wins each.  For the 2nd week running, Charles double blanked Richard Lauder in their closing game match up, this time Charles winning 449-355. Charles had "only" 5 bingoes this week, but nonetheless averaged 442. He will have the elusive $5 bounty with him next week. Good luck trying for successful hunting against Charles's winning streak.

2nd - Thomas Reinke only had one sub 457 game, as he would only bingo late with the beautiful find ELENCHI on his penultimate play vs. a pesky defense minded Richard Lauder, a game Thomas did lose 355-387 on his way to a 3-1 +581 night and 2nd position. Charles was bingo king with 10 tonight.

3rd- Peter Schmiedicke continued to effulge with mega bingo games, this time a 9 bingo outing including a 9 letter HEFTINESS, GIRASOLE, TOPSIDER and DOGGERS, all resulting in a final 3-1 +321 3rd place finish.


1st - Veteran Sue Goldstein wove three straight wins before dropping her final game with June Scott in a tightly controlled 265-271 defensive battle.  Sue pulled out a 3-1 +39 night and the top record in the Intermediates.

2nd - Harwinder Dowd took 2nd with a fine 2-1 +91 record, losing only her 3rd game when expert Helen Flores bested her 361-312. Harwinder searched in vain in that last game for a go ahead bingo play whilst her formidable opponent sealed Harwinder's "game coffin" with Helen's bingo HEARSES.

3rd - June Scott opened with a huge 385-331 refutation win against Helen Flores while on her eventual way to a 2-2 -31 3rd place finale.

A full table of treats was enjoyed with the overwhelming top treat being a wonderful box of very user friendly cookies courtesy of Aki and Sharlie.   : )
