****************************

August through September was a very sad time for the members of our club.  Three of our very special and wonderful long-time members passed away:

     
     OSSIE MAIR      ROBERT KAHN   GEORGE ROGERS  

We were so lucky to have them with us for many years and feel their absence deeply.  Please take a moment to read their "In Memoriam" on our Passages page.


TWO NEW PLAYERS and A VISITOR!

On a brighter side, we were happy to welcome new player, JOHN BECK who has been bitten by the Scrabble Club #276 bug and has been attending on a regular basis!  And from the way that he is serious about his games including taking photos of each completed game, it won't be long until John becomes one of our "Experts!"

AVIS CASELY, a "young" nonagenarian, came to our club a few times in July and August to experience her first time playing Scrabble at a nationally-sanctioned club while also learning how to use a digital clock to time her games.  We enjoyed meeting you, Avis and hope to see you back here again.




During July, we were also happy to welcome Maddy Kamen's daughter, AMANDA GOLOB one night at club and hope that whenever she is back in town to visit her mom and Roy, she'll attend our club again.

VERY COOL PLAY BY HOWARD PISTOL

Imagine having the following tiles on your rack:

Check below the "Cell Phone Update" 
to see what Howard played!

CELL PHONE FUND UPDATE

Our club members are really getting good at keeping their cell phones off during our club hours!  Since February, we have had only a couple of ringing phones so I am happy to say that the Cell Phone total is still at only $2.00.

Answer:  JUJITSU!!!



OUR DIETS WILL NEVER START TOMORROW!!!
Many thanks go to all of our club members who bring in refreshments for our members to enjoy while playing our games!
