There were 13 players in attendance when we last met on August 21, 2014.

Congratulations to Claudia for having the high-above-average game last
week, in which she scored 467, 34.6% above her average.

High score: Joel 536

High losing score: Betsey 403 to Chris K. 439

These are the words challenged or considered last week:

KAG, TALA, CUBER, ODEUM, OUTWAR, ELATORS, STATUED, ARMITURE, BOATABLE,
CORELESS, EMOTICON, OVERTINT, POEMLESS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
TALA, CUBER, ODEUM, OUTWAR, (OLESTRA+), STATUED, BOATABLE, CORELESS
(SCLEROSE), EMOTICON+


The Seattle Club has done a lot of work to find the new OWL3 and OSPD5
words. See: http://www.seattlescrabble.org/owl3.php
Some of our New England players have made some lists:
- Ed Liebfried's handwritten list of new threes was available at the
  Manchester, NH Club on 20-Aug-14
- Chris Kulig' handwritten new OWL3 words starting with J,Q,X,Z was
  available at the Lexington Club on 21-Aug-14


Last week's news should have included that two weeks ago Steven S.
and Emmanuel had a high-scoring tie at 434 to 434. There was another
tie that night of 352-352 between Jaya and Chris K.


ARK + REST makes two OWL2 sevens, only one of which is common.
Collins has an additional such word.

TIN + PLAY makes two OWL2 sevens, one of which is uncommon.
Collins is the same.
