OUR NEW REGULARLY ATTENDING PLAYER!

In November, we were very happy to welcome new player, LEWIS GORNITZ who I am happy to say is another one of our newly attending players who has been bitten by the Scrabble Club #276 bug!  During our last club session in January, Lewis won his first TWO games only losing to Ian Weinstein in the last game!

We had two other new playerswho show up on our doorstep since our last web site update, BRIAN KERMAN and ADRIAN LYNCH
I have a good feeling that at least one of these first time club players will start attending our Scrabble Club on a regular basis!

CELL PHONE FUND UPDATE
$3.00
Our club members are really getting good at keeping their cell phones off during our club hours!  Since September, we have had only ONE phone ring and so the total of our cell phone fund is now  $3.00!!!  Wow!!!  "All's quiet on the Southeastern front!"  When fund total reaches $5.00, we will award that money as an additional prize the following week.

Three Times is The Charm!!!

Interesting game played in October 
by IAN WEINSTEIN and ELAINE PATTERSON!


Ian and Elaine called me over to look at their board where their two opening plays were LOUIE and LOUIE.  

A few minutes later, I was called over again when the fourth play was another LOUIE!!!
