There were 21 players in attendance when we last met on July 14, 2016.

We welcome Judi Boviard back to our club for her return visit last week.
She likely last attended this club nearly 10 years ago. She
has recently been playing in the Tuesday night Worcester Club.

Congratulations to Steven S. for having the high-above-average game last
week, in which he scored 565, 37.6% above his average, against one of the
top ten players in the club.

Other high scores: Don 529 and 504, Mike W. 519, Chris K. 517

High losing scores: Richard B. 403 to Steven S. 565,
                    James 403 to Richard B. 406

High rating increase: Don +20

(SAE SEA), MUT (TUM+), CORSE (CEROS CORES SCORE), VILER (ERVIL LIVER

SINTERS (ESTRINS INSERTS STRINES+), (RUNTIER), UNDREST, LOSINGLY,
(RETARDED), SEABORNE, TENURIAL (AUNTLIER RETINULA), UNSLINGS


Our club was attended last week by at least eight (and maybe ten)
players who are regulars and occasional players in the Tuesday night
Worcester Club. Some of these folks are also regulars in Lexington.


Collins player Mohan Chunkath from India will again be visiting
this area in September and will likely be looking to play CSW2015
games at this club September 8, 15, and 22.


HET is a noun and a past tense, so HETTING is OWL3-unacceptable,
but it has an acceptable anagram. CSW2015 is the same.

SWIVE has four back hooks in OWL3 and same for CSW2015.

There are five Japanese OWL3 words ending in YU.
Four of these have a plural using a suffix S.
One of these words is only 3 letters long, and it is new in OWL3.
Collins has four more such words, but they may not all be Japanese.

Perhaps you have heard of a YOKOZUNA, who is a champion sumo
wrestler. There is another Japanese word in OWL3 which ends in ZUNA.
Collins is the same. This is not a word I have known.

There are four OWL3 words which end in UZ; they are not Japanese, and
two of these come from languages other than English. Collins has one
more such word.
