There were 15 players in attendance when we last met on March 16, 2017.

Congratulations to Joel for having the high-above-average game last
week, in which he scored 582, 40.1% above his average.

High losing scores: Judy H. 413 to James 415, Judy H. 404 to Mike W. 439

In games last week:
- Marvin scored 111 for SIDECAR on a double-double;
- Joel had yet another 5-bingo game and he scored 582.

In case you didn't notice, last week's club news listed Judy H. as
the top-ranked currently active player in this club. It is likely
that was first time in club history that she was in that position.
Unfortunately, she dropped back down in rating last week to now be
fifth in the club ranking. Judy suspects the number one position
was never before held by a female.

Weekday dates last week were from 3/13 through 3/17, and here are
losing scores seen coincidentally last week in our club:
313, 314, 314, 316, 317.


At the recent 14-game tourney in Poughkeepsie, NY:
  In the 5-game Early Bird:
   In 6-player Div. 1: Judy C. was in the lower half 

  In the 14-game Main Event:
    In 12-player Div. 1: Joey Mallick 3rd, Wes (seeded 10th) was 4th,
                         lower half: Joel, Judy H.
    In 12-player Div. 2: Judy C. 6th, lower half: Carol McD.
    In 15-player Div. 4: James 7th
    
    In 12-player CSW Division:  Brad W. was 3rd, Richard was 5th,
                                lower half: Thomas Stumpf


Happy St. Patrick's Day! PATRICK is OWL16-unacceptable, but it is
CSW2015-acceptable. It has an OWL16- and CSW2015-acceptable anagram. 

There are four OWL16 front hooks for LUMP, and CSW2015 is the same.
