Charles Reinke hits 13th straight win

                    CHARLES REINKE HITS 14 WINS..


1st - Charles Reinke recorded his 14th straight win as he again swept the field, this time with a 4+0 +545 record. Charles's closest game of the night was his 452-370 win against his brother Thomas.  Charles played the lovely bingo of PALEOSOL (a layer of ancient soil) as one of his 10 bingoes overall that night.   He now has an 80% winning percentage. 

2nd- Mary Becker rose from a way too long losing streak several weeks back to a dominating 4-1 +201 night. including back to back 450 games vs. Richard Lauder and Peter "Bingo Machine" Schmiedicke before drawing Charles for her last game. She became Charles 14 straight victim.

3rd- Peter Schmiedicke's third place 3-1 +229 included the club's high game of the night, a convincing 557-441 shootout with Mark Kenas. Peter played ENACTOR, TOADIES, SORRIER and a triple-triple scoring  ROUSTING in that high scoring effort.  He and Mark combined for 998 points.

Thomas Reinke layed down the word of the week, AYURVEDAS, a nine letter world class play thru the disconnected Y and the second A. An Ayurveda is defined as a Hindu medicinal system...terrific play Thomas! Not many players looking at a Y,V, and the letter U would think their was any hope there at all. Not so with Thomas.


1st - Aki Miura emerged top Intermediate in a field of 3 players, with a narrow 5 point win vs. Sue Goldstein in his first of two games at the club.

2nd- Sue Goldstein's 1-3 -162 came as Sue played two games against experts as part of her 4 games played evening. Sue's win was a 323-270 2nd game with Sharlie Miura.

3rd - Sharlie Miura finished 3rd at 0-2 -124 as she and Aki once again helped Sue form a small but loyal showing of Intermediates.
