|Hello super scrabble enthusiasts,
Yuki and I are pleased to announce the resumption of the Super Scrabble Club promoted by our dear friend Maliha Mahmood. The club will be known as Maliha Mendoza Mahmood Super Scrabble Club, or MMMSSC for short.
Where: Original Mike’s Restaurant
100 S. Main St., Santa Ana, CA 92701
When: Every third Thursday of the month
1pm to 8pm (dinner from 5pm to 6pm)
We all know that running the club will not be the same as when Maliha did it. Her generosity and dedication are unparalleled! Hence, we would like to point out the following:
First – Each player must buy dinner at the MMMSSC venue. You may check out the menu at Original Mike’s menu – Santa Ana CA 92701 – (714) 550-7764
Second – There will be a $2 contribution to be collected from every player at club meetings. The collection will start in January 2020, which means that playing this month and next month will be free.
Third – A prize will be awarded for each category word played every month and for the year-to-date average number of bingo words at the end of the year. These words must be officially acceptable to be counted towards a prize. Categories will be made known beforehand, but no examples will be given. The categories for this month will be a surprise, though. And please take note that the prizes will be nowhere near to what our benevolent Maliha had been giving out.
Fourth – We have 10 super scrabble sets at our disposal. No one will be a permanent owner of a set as the sets will be rotated among all players accordingly. Two sets, however, will stay with and be taken care of by Yuki and me. The other 8 sets will be assigned to the first “caretakers”, namely, Gretchen Cowan, Lynn Gunn, Bill Lapinski, Amnon Meyers, Gary Moss, Najat Reikes, Renee Kahn and Don Platt.
Fifth – Announcements for the next club meeting will be emailed every second Thursday of the month. Your intention to attend such meeting must be received by us no later than the following Sunday to allow us time to notify you if you are among the first 20 players to sign up. If for some reason you change your mind about attending, please let us know within 3 days so we can accommodate other players to take your spot.
Sixth – A randomization formula will be used to determine each player’s opponent for the first game. For the second and third games, pairings will be determined by the King-of-the-Hill procedure.
Seventh – In every game, players will draw who goes first.
Last but not least – Would you like to have a slice or two of chocolate cake to go with your dinner every month, whenever possible? Then do tell us your birth month/day so we can celebrate your birthday with some singing … and with some rich calories! We will even waive your contribution for the month!
|Yuki and I look forward to seeing you at our inaugural MMMSSC meeting next Thursday, 11/21/19.
If you want your name removed from the email list, please let us know and we will respectfully do so.
