There were 5 players in attendance when we last met on July 8, 2019.

Congratulations to Helena for having the high-above-average game last
week, in which she scored 579, 50.3% above her average. Featured in this
game was a 221-point triple-triple of TOP(A)ZINE, likely Helena's
highest-scoring word in her many years of competitive Scrabble games,
and it is probably the highest-scoring word in Exeter Club history.

Another high score: Mike 511

High losing scores: Joe 441 to Mike 456,
                    Joe 404 to Helena 417

These are the words challenged or considered last week:

FURSE, ALVINE, OTALGIES
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
ALVINE (ALEVIN VALINE VEINAL VENIAL VINEAL), OTALGIES (LATIGOES)

Don's contribution...
  Three close, competitive Boggle games were played by Helena, Mike,
  and Don at the end of the evening.  Mike and Don shared the victories,
  while everyone contributed to the eight-letter finds, HEATHENS,
  HEATHERS, INCLINER, RELEASER, and STEALTHS, and to a few other
  interesting finds such as ANTIFAS, BALTIS, GUGLET, JANNIED, HENLIKE,
  RUGLIKE, SHTUPS, and YOWLER.
