At the Florence, MA 5-game tourney on 19-Jun-16:
 In 6-player Div. 1: Richard (seeded 2nd) won 4-0-tie, Wes 2nd
 In 6-player Div. 2: Betsey was in the lower half
 In 6-player Div. 3: Trx. was 2nd

There is an OWL3 eight which can be made from CRINOID + T.
CSW2015 is the same.

PARKINGS and SPARKING are anagrams. Remove the G and there
are two new OWL3 words which are uncommon to yours truly.
CSW2015 is the same.

Since last week's club news had a lot of words relating to cats,
this week's news balances the situation by including all OWL3 words
which include "dog" in their definitions. With a workspace width of 66
columns, the WHAT command to produce this list is: * /"dog" /OR,2S
The WHAT output was then edited by suffixing each line other than the
last one with a comma. Here are about half of the answers:

ALAN, ALANS, BARK, BARKED, BARKING, BARKS, BASENJI, BASENJIS,
BAWTIE, BAWTIES, BLUETICK, BLUETICKS, BOUVIER, BOUVIERS, BOWWOW,
BOWWOWED, BOWWOWING, BOWWOWS, BRIARD, BRIARDS, CANID, CANIDS,
CANINE, CANINES, CHILIDOG, CHILIDOGS, COLLIE, COLLIES, CORGI,
CORGIS, COYDOG, COYDOGS, CRACKIE+, CRACKIES+, CUR, CURS, DHOLE,
DHOLES, DINGO, DINGOES, DINGOS+, DOG, DOGGED, DOGGIER, DOGGIES,
DOGGIEST, DOGGING, DOGGY, DOGHOUSE, DOGHOUSES, DOGLIKE, DOGNAP,
DOGNAPED, DOGNAPING, DOGNAPPED, DOGNAPPING, DOGNAPS, DOGS,
DOGSKIN+, DOGSKINS+, ELKHOUND, ELKHOUNDS, FEIST, FEISTS, FOOTLONG+,
FOOTLONGS+, FOXHOUND, FOXHOUNDS, GUARDDOG, GUARDDOGS, GUNDOG,

Next week's news will like have the remaining such words.
