Club results 11/23


1st Charles Reinke has been on a roll, once again sweeping all of his games to run his current streak to 14 straight. Cowering Club members may have to call in Mark Kenas, aka “The stopper” soon. Charles’s nights high game was a resounding 533-352 vs. his brother Thomas. Charles was also bingo king this week with 10, including STENGHAS, the word of the week.

2nd Michael David finished in 2nd with 3-1 +140 score sheet. Michael won a high scoring opening game 470-430 with Andy Bohnsack as he made a rare appearance for him at club this Fall. Michael laid down PROPOSE and EARSTONE to Andy’s TULADIS and DENTIST answering bingos.

3rd Thomas Reinke finished 3rd with a 3-2 +97 record. His closest game was a narrow 25 point win vs. Lynda Finn 422-397. His two bingoes of OUTRIDES and TEVATRON made for the diff there.


1st Betty Hasselkus finished in 1st at 3-1 +377 in the intermediates, her sole loss coming in the 4th round in her game with Sue Goldstein 336-356, despite her bingo there of ARTLESS.

2nd Sue Goldstein finished 2nd with her 3-1 -50 final accounting. Sue did loss her 3rd game when she at Betty played in a 269-424 game in which Sue felt she drew like “ugh” on her way to that sound loss.

3rd Aki Miura finished 3rd with his 1-2 -123 total, his sole win coming in a head-to-head battle with his favorite opponent, his wife Sharlie. Aki won that game 385-288 as he once again scored quite well without the benefit of a single bingo play.

14 scrabble players met at the Church on Thanksgiving Eve this week... Charles Reinke was awarded the $4 prize for the highest “A” play with MANIOCA (in AZUKI), seems no one had the lowest Z play, while the high UK was given out to Leslie Seltzer’s OUTDRANK, and the final low I count went to Richard Lauder’s RATIO play at 6.
