--------------------------------------------------------------------------
(LOG), BANC+, SOMA (MOAS OMAS+), (CHEST TECHS), JOWED, MOSKS, (BANED),
(FREEZE), (WEIRDO), WINTRY, (OLEINES), IRELESS (RESILES), MUTABLY,
(RAGWEED WAGERED), SEPTIME (EMPTIES), TAXYING, ANTINUKE, (CUPOLAED),
(FOLIATES), MISEVENT, TALLIERS (LITERALS)

We met last week upstairs at the church, and we expect to again
do that for our next meeting. You should enter the rear door to the
church, as usual.

In the words listed in last week's news with a blank, there were
three errors noticed; these should have been the entries:
RADI.ES (2), WEA.ONS (2), WEAK.NS

On 31-May-17, Donald Trump tweeted the nonword COVFEFE, and
perhaps this will enter the Scrabble lexicon in the future.
Meanwhile, in case you are wondering what shortest acceptable
word contains those letters, the answer is NONEFFECTIVE.
You need to add 5 letters to the 7-letter nonword to form that.
NONWORD is an acceptable word; its OSPD definition is "a word
that has no meaning".

FROG + MILE anagram to an acceptable OWL16 eight, and here are
other animals which yield OWL16 words when combined with MILE:
 ANT, ASS, BAT, CAT, COD, DOR, GNU, HEN, MAN, ONO, RAM, RAT, 
 BASS, BIRD, BOAR, CERO, GNAT, RAIL, SORA, TOPI,
 OYSTER, PANFISH.

There are two front hooks for ANTIC, forming adjectives.
OWL16 and CSW2015 are the same.

SUET has three back hooks. OWL16 and CSW2015 are the same.

WALE has two front hooks. OWL16 and CSW2015 are the same.

ARSES is a plural of two different words.
