12-17-15 RESULTS, SUPER-S GAMES

Standard

Congratulations to the super scrabblers:  GRETCHEN COWAN and AMNON MEYERS for winning three games.  Amnon also had a high game=1144, and high cum score of 3146.  When we finished the second game early, some players decided to play another game so we ended up playing 3 games. At the last announcement it was mentioned that all 2-game-winners will win a prize as well.  Congrats to BILL LAPINSKI (Bill played the most bingos=16), PAT REED, EVELYN DAVIS, DAVID POSTAL, and RENÉE KAHN for being the 2-game-winners during our Superscrabbler’s 2015 Christmas games.  There was a Christmas bonus of $50 that Mrs. Atnas put in the box for the $12- to 13-letter-word winners.  This was won by two outstanding individuals:  BILL LAPINSKI and FERN TRAUSCH.  The highlight of the day was a 3-round-game organize by GRETCHEN utilizing 3 dices labelled “Left, Center, and Right.”  We were momentarily transported to Las Vegas and WOW, what a lot of fun — SCRABBLERS transformed to PSEUDO GAMBLERS!  And the big winner of the 3-round game was NAJAT REIKES!

MANY THANKS to Gretchen and Lynn for organizing a fantabulous potluck and a most unusual game.  And thanks to everyone who generously brought so many kinds of foods, drinks, cakes, cookies with scrabble letters, etc., including cups and plates. The Christmas GIFT of chicken and goats for children of the world through the WORLD VISION brought emotional tremors in my whole being as I concealed and controlled my tears of joy.  This was the best gift one can ever imagine — being able to share something to the needy children.  Thank you again.
