There were 8 players in attendance when we last met on February 19, 2015.

Congratulations to Judy H. for having the high-above-average game last
week, in which she scored 463, 14.3% above her average, against one of the
top ten players in the club.

High score: Chris G. 543

High losing score: Marc G. 420 to Emmanuel 425

These are the words challenged or considered last week:

BON, NONO, GORER, MOILE, YARES, CUTANE, ENLURES, EVEREST, PIROGHS, SPAYING,
DECOYERS, PLASMINS, SPAYINGS, THEONAGE, TILLERED, WEARINGS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
(NOB), (NOON), (REORG+ ROGER), (EYRAS RESAY SAYER YEARS), (UNREELS),
SPAYING, DECOYERS, PLASMINS (MISPLANS), TILLERED, (RESAWING SWEARING)


There is one base word in OWL2/OWL3 which begins with MISTER; there are
some inflected forms of the word. Collins allows for another word, and
in Collins MISTER is a verb.


RATIONER was played last week, but it was an accepted phony with an
acceptable OWL2/OWL3 anagram. Collins is the same.

Mark played the new ANODISE last week.

Chris G. has a tentative club rating which is quite high, but he needs
to play at least ten games in order to be ranked. His average is also
quite high.

                        RULES FOR WEEKLY RANKINGS
                        -------------------------
Each new player is given an estimated rating which will be recalculated
after that person has played ten games.  A "UNR" is listed as a new
player's rating until at least four games are played.  Then a provisional
rating is shown (followed by a slash and the number of games). New
players are not ranked until they have played ten games.  The "/A" after
a player's rating indicates that player has been absent for at least 4
club sessions and is thus not ranked.  A player who has been absent for
at least 10 sessions is not listed. A player who has played fewer than 5
total games is no longer listed after missing 3 sessions. When a game is
a tie, each player is credited with a win.
