There were 12 players in attendance when we last met on August 10, 2017.

Congratulations to Mark F. for having the high-above-average game last
week, in which he scored 564, 43.3% above his average, against one of the
top ten players in the club.

High losing scores: Joel 416 to Steven S. 432,
                    Joel 402 to Carl 483

These are the words challenged or considered last week:

OKE, NIDE, SUDD, YARS, CUTAN, GRUMS, NUGAT, SUNKA, SUNKS, YAROS, BONKER,
MALINE, SHELFS, BAGLESS, FAVISMS, FOULERS, RELICTS, REINABLE, TAMORINE
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
OKE, NIDE (DENI DINE), SUDD (DUDS), (RAYS RYAS), (GAUNT), (ANKUS),
(BROKEN), MALINE (MENIAL), FAVISMS, (OURSELF), RELICTS


Last week, when they played, Joel bingoed with PERINEA, and Mark F.
later bingoed with PErINEA. Joel bingoed twice and Mark bingoed
four times. The club record is 8 total bingos in one game.


Paula Catanese has informed us that a Phoenix, AZ WGPO Tourney in
mid-February, 2018 potentially (with a minimum of 6 players) has
a Collins division. To see upcoming WGPO tourneys, see:

SHY + CLAM forms an uncommon OWL16 seven; CSW2015 is the same.

CHEZ + SAT forms a 7-letter acceptable OWL16 word, which is
unacceptable in CSW2015. We listed all OWL16-only words in last
week's news - there are 59 of them of length less than nine.

These are the four OWL16 words of length less than nine
which can extend OXO:   DOXOLOGY NALOXONE TOXOID TOXOIDS.
CSW2015 allows four much such words.

You might think SCAMPI is a certain preparation for cooked
shrimp, but it is a kind of shrimp -- a large one. You also may
be surprised to learn its plural is not formed by merely
suffixing an S; the plural is either the same word or SCAMPIES.
SCAMPIES has two OWL16 (or CSW2015) anagrams.

CHORDS + A makes an obscure OWL16 seven; CSW2015 is the same.

An easy anagramming problem - find the seven in ANT + LION.
CSW2015 is the same as OWL16.
A tougher problem - find the OWL16 seven in ANT + COWS.
CSW2015 allows for a second word.

An easy problem - the phony hogwarts has an anagram.
