Club Results 1/25


1st Andy Bohnsack swept through the experts for the 2nd straight week, running his current streak to 8 straight wins. His big win was his opening 496-383 blow out vs. Mark Kenas, as Andy laid down METERING, SUBVERTS, RATICIDE and ENTRAIN as played bingoes.

2nd Thomas Reinke took second on a 4-1 with a huge 628 cume margin. Thomas was bingo king this week, with 12 including the word of the week, SWANKILY. Thomas remains as the top player in the club, just narrowly ahead of his brother Charles.

3rd Charles Reinke captured third place on 3-1 +210. His closest game was a narrow 3 point win (412-409) against brother Thomas. Charles managed that win despite being held to a single bingo, ATTENDS. The 3 highest ranked club players finished in places 1-3 this week…go figure.


1st Sue Goldstein finished her night at 2-2 -138 to take top place in the Intermediates. She opened her night with a close win against newbie Molly Gardner 366-342.

2nd June Scott ended in 2nd in the field of 3 intermediates, with her 1-2 -77 finish. June ended her night with a win, 299-277 over her long term sparring partner, Sue Goldstein.

3rd Harwinder Dowd clinched 3rd with a 1-2 evening. Harwinder opened with a strong game, a 353-296 encounter with June Scott, DANGERS her bingo there.

17 scrabble players met at the Church this week,... Andy Bohnsack was awarded the $4 prize for the highest “C” play (in CALIF), June Scott had the lowest A play, Mark Kenas took high LI with a very unusual bingo of SLIPKNOT, and Susan Vergeront volunteered the finishing low F play. Matt Rust after a long absence came back to the friendly confines of the Scrabble group but ran smack into several buzz saws as he drew bingo less racks all night long. It’s still “Welcome back” to Matt and we hope you rejoin us soon. Next week we meet back at Attic Angels.
