This news reports on the first night of play for the 2014-2015 Season.
Wins, losses, and averages are starting over and ratings are carried
over. Averages shown in parentheses are from the previous season.
In order to be eligible for the high-above-average accolade, you must
play at least 20 games in the current season.

In the 2013-2014 Season, which went from September 2013 through
August 2014, individuals played 3302 games, and so there were
1651 games in all. The average score in all of these games was 387.
These numbers were 4048, 2024, and 385 for the previous season.
Two seasons ago, they were 4924, 2462, and 386.

Of the 3302 individual games, 3038 were played by an "active player".
We define an active player as someone who played at least 20 games in
the season. The average score of the active players was 383 for the
season. These numbers were 3757 and 383 for the previous season.

These above stats will be included in the club's annual season report
which will likely be completed within a few weeks.

LASTIC is not a word, but there are three letters which can hook at
its front to form acceptable OWL2 words; one of these is uncommon.
Unacceptable LASTIC has one OWL2 anagram, and Collins adds another.
There is a front hook for LEATHER. Collins is the same as OWL2.

There are 7 OWL2 sevens with at least 3 U's. One of these is unusual,
but you probably don't know all the others. Collins has five more
such words.

There are no OWL2 eights with four U's, but Collins has three such words.
