Superscrabble Games 4-7-16

Standard

The games go on — at the same place in Tustin, 10:00 a.m.  I called Ruby’s Diner today, but the manager said that due to the Spring break, the place cannot accommodate us for the games on 4–7-16.  But we will be able to play there on April 21, 2016. There are prizes for: winning 3 games, highest scoring game, highest cumulative score, high-point bingo word, and the most bonus words played.

PLEASE CONFIRM.  If you’re new, call Maliha for direction, text at 714-654-4308 or email maliha.mendoza@gmail.com.  The finders of words in the following categories will receive an instant prize; the words must contain 5 or more letters to quality.   Fern Trausch contributed the following categories for the three games.
