REMINDER: The next Superscrabble Club meeting is scheduled for Thursday, March 22, 2018. Invite a friend to experience the perfect stimulus for the neurons in your brain cells.

There are prizes for: each bingo word played, winner of 3 games, high cumulative score, high scoring game out of 3, highest point for non-bingo word, and highest scoring bingo word after 3 games. We shall be celebrating advanced Bday for Don Platt 3-30, and belated Bday for Joanie Scafuto 3-11.
NOTE: Awards for High-Cum, High-Game, High-Bingo, and High-Non-Bingo words will be ready for pick on the next meeting.
