                        (over for the news)

There were 15 players in attendance when we last met on September 22, 2016.

We welcome Scott Saveriano to our club for his first visit last week.

Congratulations to Judy H. for having the high-above-average game last
week, in which she scored 431, 9.7% above her average. Contenders for
this accolade must have played at least 20 games during this season.

High scores: Jake B. 517, Judy H. 510

High losing score: Mike W. 412 to Steven S. 441

These are the words challenged or considered last week:

GIF, DEPO, LATU, NONO, ANISE, BEEDY, FRETS, TRODS, FISSATE, REFACER,
ENROLING, TWANGILY
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
GIF+ (FIG), (DOPE OPED), LATU, (NOON), ANISE, (DEBYE), FRETS, FISSATE
(FIESTAS)


In her 510-point game last week, Judy H. played only one bingo.
That bingo hooked with four overlapping words, some of which
were non-sequential in the seven. Getting the high game score
was helped by her playing non-bingos plays of ZEROS for 70,
METH for 50, and QUACK for 40.

Steven S. made a 9-letter MISGU(ID)ED in his first game.


The season report for the 2015-2016 Season is now on the club
website at: http://LSC.wolfberg.net/season/2015-2016

Also, the club roster has been updated with statistics for the
previous season. NASPA ratings and rankings there are for
1-Aug-16 data. A few inactive players have been removed as part
of the update. Let Mike W. know if you would like to be included
on the roster page and are not there currently.

SLANDER has a front hook.

A POX for you...
 There are only a few OWL16 words which end in POX. One is SMALLPOX,
 and there are five other such words which begin with the name of
 an animal or animal group. Chicken is NOT one of these, and neither
 is Stegosaurus. One of the words, new in OWL16 is of length 9.
