Due to unforeseen (no pun intended) eyesight problems, my apologies for the 6-month delay in updating our web site and statistics.  Although there will be no positive change in my eyesight until surgery next year, I have doggedly pursued entering the weekly Scrabble scores and updating this web site by doing a little each day.  As I once told my granddaughter, Macey, "If you ever face a difficult task, just keep putting one foot in front of the other and before you know it you will have conquered whatever it is you had to do."

Although many of our out-of-town players started to leave for the spring through autumn months, we did have a few visitors from April through the end of September.




My records show that Bob Krause visiting from New York attended our club on August 16, but I couldn't find his photo.  Sorry, Bob.






We are now looking forward to all  of our Snowbirds returning to our Scrabble Club 276 nest very soon!


===========================================

We were so sad to hear that a very special member of our club, Angel Dupree 
passed away on August 9th.  

Whenever Angel came into Scrabble club , you could always feel her enthusiasm, interest and joy for everything that she did!

Even though Angel had been suffering with COPD for quite awhile and could not attend club very often during this past year, she made sure that her traditional  handmade St. Patrick's Day potato heads were still delivered to our club by her daughter this past March.
Thank you for being a part of our 
Scrabble Club and our lives, Angel.  
We miss you very much .

ANGEL DUPREE

April 3, 1943 - August 9, 2017

And last but not least, JED's Memorial Day Board!

CELL PHONE FUND UPDATE

On May 3rd, MARTY ROSEN won the $5.00 Cell Phone Fund when he played "CARDERS" for 75 points!
Our cell phone fund is now up to $2.00.  As soon as it reaches $5.00, we will award that money to one of our players as a prize for playing the highest scoring word that begins with a "C" for "Cell phone" or "Caught you!"

=========================

OUR DIETS 
NEVER START
TOMORROW!!!

We have such thoughtful and giving members at our club!  Many weeks they come in with delicious snacks and goodies for all of their fellow players to enjoy while playing their Scrabble games. 

Here are photos of some of our club members who have brought in their delicious baked goodies and snacks for us to enjoy during the last six months.





















Most of Jed's donuts disappeared before I had a chance to take a photo of him and his yummy offerings!

=========================
The 2017 Third Quarter Stats are now listed on our "CLUB STATS" page.  In addition to our regularly attending players, anyone who has visited our club during these past nine months will also have their stats listed there.
The next time that our Scrabble Club 276 web site will be updated, along with our 2017 End-of Year Statistics, will be sometime after our 29th Annual Scrabble Club 276 Awards Night has been held. 

Please be aware that to qualify for our 29th Annual Scrabble Club 276 Awards Night you are required to have played at least 64 games during our 2017 club sessions.  

Now would be a good time to check your 9 month stats, adding your wins to your losses to see how many total games you have already played this past year.  It would also show if you are still mathematically able to qualify for the 64 game requirement.  As of today's web site update (Oct. 3) there are still 39 games that you can add to your total, that is, barring any unforeseen hurricanes or other emergency club closures.


So, please mark your calendars to attend 
our 
29th Annual Awards Night on January 10, 2018!!!  




WISHING HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!
