Last week, Steven S. and Mike W. played a game in which each player
played four bingos. This has been done before in this club's history, when
Steven was a player in that game. The score of last week's game was
Steven 521 - Mike 472, so the total was 993. At the time of the game,
as a result of scoring errors the players believed the total was 1000,
but scoring errors were noticed when the game was documented.

As most of our club players have been informed by NASPA, some of you
may not yet be aware of the recent announcement by NASPA that the
start date for using OWL3 is no longer 1-Dec-14. The date will be set
once Zyzzyva and perhaps other programs have been updated to support OWL3.


RIAL is a word, and it has 2 OWL2 front hooks, one of which is uncommon.
OWL3 is the same, but Collins has one more front hook.

RAIL is a word, and it has 5 OWL2 front hooks.
OWL3 and Collins are the same.

BASIS has two OWL2 anagrams. OWL3 and Collins are the same.
