                        (over for the news)

There were 13 players in attendance when we last met on May 14, 2015.

Congratulations to Mark F. for having the high-above-average game last
week, in which he scored 505, 28.0% above his average, against one of the
top ten players in the club.

Another high score: Joel 526

High losing score: Steven S. 427 to Judy H. 440

These are the words challenged or considered last week:

NES, EGIS, SWOG, WILTY, EEJITS, OILPAN, TACKER, AWAKING, ETESIAN, HEADSET,
NAUTILI, REEFIES, RESALES, SPINATE, STILLERS, DIVERTERS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
(ENS SEN), EGIS (GIES), (WOGS), EEJITS+, TACKER (RACKET RETACK), AWAKING,
ETESIAN, HEADSET, NAUTILI, RESALES (EARLESS LEASERS RESEALS SEALERS),
SPINATE (PANTIES PATINES SAPIENT), DIVERTERS (VERDITERS)


MATEO is unacceptable, but if you add a blank it forms four OWL3 words
which are not common. In Collins there are eight resulting words.


In honor of the upcoming holiday, MEMORIAL plus a blank yields the
plural and another obscure word.

MEMORIAL+DAY needs 4 blanks to make a 15-letter OWL3 word.
Using Collins it needs only 3 blanks to make a 14-letter word.


Can you find the obvious bingo in SVIOOU plus a blank?


Each week, there is club news like this news you are reading.
There is a separate news which shows the current standings of the
Collins games being played at this club. That weekly Collins news
seldom has newsy bits - just the stats of Collins games and also
the challenged words report, where Collins words are shown below the
line.  In last week's Collins news, it was interesting that there
were three players tied for first place with the very same Collins
rating. The players are Jake, Richard, and Chris S. It is likely this
has never happened in this club's history, even in the non-Collins news.
It turns out in this week's news the situation has changed, and the same
three active players are with different ratings, with one point
separation, namely: Chris S. 1767, Jake 1766, and Richard 1765.
