Club Results 9/28


1st Thomas Reinke ran his current winning streak to 12 straight, with only brother Charles providing a close game (408-378)…can anyone stop this human juggernaut? Stay tuned…

2nd Lynda Finn finished in 2nd on a 4-1 +320 tally. Lynda’s only close game that was a win came from her 375-339 besting as she played Leslie Seltzer. That was Lynd’a only game where she played only a single bingo (GERENTS).

3rd Richard Lauder finished 3rd with a 4-1 +282 cume. He won an interesting final game by a narrow 11 points (414-401) when his opponent, Charles Reinke, had to make a low scoring “Q” play late in a back-and-forth affair. Earlier, Charles played the word of the week, IODOPSIN.


1st Janet Griesel lost only to usual expert Gail Slam (307-412) as she recorded a 3-1 +87 final score. Janet “returned the favor” against expert Leslie Seltzer 387-361 in their closing game.

2nd Sharlie Miura took second with a strong 2-1 +13 outing. Sharlie dispatched June Scott 313-221 in their final game where neither player was fortunate in finding a playable bingo.

3rd Newbie Peter Schmiedicke ended his first night at an impressive 2-1 -85, and finished in 3rd as he bingoed out with RESALES to upend Mary Becker who was playing a 2vs1 final game.

19 scrabble players met at Covenant this week... Charles Reinke was awarded the $4 prize for the highest “P” play (PHARISEE) (in PERP), Dee Lillge captured the low E at 6, and the high R was awarded to Andy Bohnsack and the final P snared by Richard Lauder at 8 points.
Two new players tested the waters, Peter Schmiedicke and Scott Elder, and both emerged with wins in what both saw as tough competition. Will they be back for more? We hope so.
