Club Results 11/28



1st - Charles Reinke's 5-0 +546 was the evening's outstanding performance. With his winning streak at six straight, he is closing the gap on the club's top player, brother Thomas.   Charles played some fine bingos also in the 13 he landed in his five game sweep, including OVENBIRD, APOSTATE, NOSEDIVE, and the E laden REFEREED.

2nd - Thomas Reinke finished at 3-1 +328, losing a nail biter 371-373 to Richard Lauder in his only sub 400 score of the night. Against Peter Schmiedicke, Thomas lay down the word of the night, MOTLEYER in his 471-365 game with Peter.

3rd - Susan Vergeront played 7 bingoes over her 4 games, with 3 of her games scoring over the elusive 400 point level to finish at 3rd at 3-1 +117. She had the misfortune to be facing Charles Reinke in a game when Charles bingoed four times. Susan watched LOOSENER, SIRVENTE, APERIENT and the all too appropriate NOSEDIVE...bingoes by Charles in his 528-331 score there.


1st - Sue Goldstein traded bingos and blows with Barb Besadny in the opening round, eventually losing 339-405 despite her bingo TRAINERS, to finish the night at 2-2 +13 and in the top spot in the two-field Intermediate group.

2nd - June Scott's 1-3 -250 gave her the penultimate position. June and Sue enjoyed a 3-peat as they played each other and had many a friendly laugh along the way in games #2,#3 and #4.
