Players in the top ten are listed only at the top of this sheet,
since there is not enough room to also include them in the full list.


                        (over for the news)

There were 8 players in attendance when we last met on July 3, 2014.
There were far fewer attendees than usual, especially since many of
our players headed to Albany, NY for the long weekend tournament.

We welcome Chris Bond to our club for his first visit last week.
This was his first visit to a Scrabble club, but he has been playing
online. Chris lives in Sacramento, CA, and he was visiting this area.
He makes visits here from time to time, and he is likely to show up
again while on future visits. Chris grew up in Lexington.
 
Congratulations to Jake B. for having the high-above-average game last
week, in which he scored 521, 26.9% above his average.

These are the words challenged or considered last week:

JIAO, ELEGIT, BOINKED, SEBASIC, SONARIS, UNSAVED, GOOSIEST, URTICATED
