Chris K. was able to find and play the only bingo in his opening
rack of EEEHIR? in a club game last week

EIGHTY + S anagrams to an uncommon OWL16 word. CSW2015 is the same.

SILVER + U anagrams to an OWL16 word, and CSW2015 is the same.
The word is a short form of a word which is common.

Here many sevens with one letter unstated, but you are likely to
know a common word which can be formed with that pattern. In
addition, there is at least one uncommon word which has the same
pattern. When there is a number in parens, that is the number of
more words other than the common word. The first four installments
of this puzzle were in the news dated 9-Mar-17, 30-Mar-17, 11-May-17,
and 8-Jun-17. Here is the fifth of five installments of these words...

In this fifth installment, there are 78 racks which were noticed since
the original work was done. The full list of racks is now on the web at:
http://wolfberg.net/scrabble/wordlists/OWL3/one_off_sevens
There is a similar list there for one-off eights.
