RATAN (ANTRA), RIVEN, (BYLINED), ANNEALER, MISMATED, REDYEING, TOTTERER,
UNBURIED

Judy H. played 5 bingos in the high game last week. Her opponent was
Wayne. Wayne's other three games were also high-scoring by his
opponents, namely 512, 499, and 498. So the average of his opponents
last week was 508.75; this is not the kind of statistic we have tracked,
so we don't know if this kind of situation has arisen in the past.

The first game which Wayne lost, the 512-point game by Tim, Tim's
first three plays were bingos: ANNEALER, UNBURIED, and AROUSED.


At the recent one-day 7-game tourney in Brattleboro, VT:
 In 8-player Div. 1:   Joel 2nd, Wes 4th,
                       lower half: Judy H., Bob B., Don F.
 In 8-player Div. 2:   Aaron Green won
 In 8-player Div. 3:   Linda 2nd, lower half: Claudia, Trx.
 In 8-player Div. 4:   lower half: James
 In 8-player CSW Div.: Richard won, Chris S. 3rd,
                       lower half: John S., Richard Spence              


In last week's news there was an anagramming puzzle for MIKE + RAN.
The statement was that there is an OWL2 seven, and Collins has another.
Richard points out there is an alternate spelling of the OWL2 word in
OWL2, and there is an additional alternate spelling of that word in
Collins.
