PIS (PSI SIP), AZON (ZONA), (BIRD DRIB), NAOI, PILI, THINE (THEIN), (STOVE
VOTES), POUFFE, RETIME (METIER REEMIT), OUTWARS, ROOTLES (LOOTERS RETOOLS

STRAITEN TERTIANS), NEWWAVER

In last week's club news there was a report on the recent SWILLINS
tourney in which Jere played and came in third. The name originally
stood for the SouthWest Invitational triple L-Note Special. Jere
has noted the I has changed to stand for the word International.
It is no longer an invitational tourney.

ORCA + MAN yields one uncommon OWL3 seven; Collins has another word.

These are all 46 of the 7-letter X words with anagrams in OWL3:
  BOXWOOD  WOODBOX      EXAMPLE  EXEMPLA
  SAXTUBA  SUBTAXA      LEXISES+ SILEXES
  EXCIDES  EXCISED      MAXIMIN  MINIMAX
  EXCEPTS  EXPECTS      MIREXES  REMIXES
  EXACTER  EXCRETA      NEXUSES  UNSEXES
  EXCITOR  XEROTIC      ANTISEX  SEXTAIN
  COEXIST  EXOTICS      EXPERTS  SEXPERT+
  DIOXIDS  IXODIDS      EXPIRES  PREXIES
  EXPANDS  SPANDEX      EXPOSIT  POXIEST
  INDEXER  REINDEX      TEXTURE  URTEXTE+
  EPOXIDE  EPOXIED      TAXWISE  WAXIEST
  AFFIXER  REAFFIX      

You likely know that SITCOM is a word, but so is SATCOM.
SITCOMS has an anagram. SATCOMS has two OWL3 anagrams, one of which is
new, but the other is a well-known common word. Collins has yet
another anagram of SATCOMS.

END + TIME makes one new OWL3 word, but your first guess at it will
likely be wrong. Collins is the same.
