What's an evening like at the Lauderhill Scrabble® Club #276? 

Read John Thomason's June 2007 article which appeared in the Sun-Sentinel.

"Lauderhill Scrabble Club #276 is Not for Novices."


 

Although we found a new venue for our Scrabble Club #276, we are doing the prudent thing and
postponing our "reopening" indefinitely until the Coronavirus pandemic is under control and it is safe for groups to congregate again.  Stay tuned and hopefully in the near future we will have a "normal" existence again!

It gives me great pleasure to announce that our Scrabble Club #276 has found a new "home" to hold our weekly Wednesday evening club meetings!!!

Starting on Wednesday, March 18, 2020 we will be meeting at Denny's Restaurant in Plantation on Sunrise Blvd. near Sawgrass Mills.  They are reserving an entire room for us which is brightly lit, clean and has 11 booths and 6 tables!  The room will allow us to seat 34 players!  Their only stipulation is that we order something to eat, which isn't difficult because their food is good and they have a large menu from which to choose.

Click on the following link to view their menu:

Denny's Menu

Denny's is open 24 hours a day and you can arrive whatever time you want.  Our three games will begin at 6:30 PM.  If you prefer to eat before playing just arrive earlier.  If you want to "eat and play" and think you can do so without going over on your clock, then that's okay, too.  I will only be recording the first three games but if you want to stay later and play other games "for fun," you have that option, too.

Please make an effort to join us on our first night at Denny's so that the management will be happy with their decision to give us a "new home" there!  To quote Rick Blaine from Casablanca, "This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship!"

Following are a couple of maps.  One is a larger view from Delray Beach down to North Miami. On the second map I enlarged the immediate area of Sunrise and surrounding areas to make it clear as to where Denny's is located.

Hope to see you on Wednesday, March 18!

Below are some more of the new 300 words and their definitions that have been added to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary.  


AQUAFABAThe liquid that results when beans are cooked in water. Aquafaba is used especially in vegan cooking as an egg white substitute.

ARANCINI: An appetizer of deep-fried rice balls stuffed with savory fillings. Yum.

BEATDOWN: A literal violent beating, or an overwhelming defeat.

BESTIEBest friend.

BIBIMBAP: A Korean dish of rice with cooked vegetables, usually meat, and often a raw or fried egg. It’s often served in a special stone bowl. Delicious.

BITCOIN: What cool/foolhardy people use for money.

BIZJET: A small plane used by corporate executives.

BOKEH: Coming from the Japanese word for “blur,” it’s the aesthetic quality of the blurry background in some photos that contrasts with the sharp focus on the subject. Like this gorgeous one.

BOTNET: A network of computers that have been linked together by malware, hacking, etc. First used in 2003, according to Merriam-Webster; we’ve been bedeviled for quite a while now.

CANKLE: Cankles are thick ankles; it’s a portmanteau of calves + ankles. Mean.

CAPTCHA: The computer security technology requiring Web page visitors to look at one or more pictures and answer a question to prove that they’re human and not computer bots. When you fill out The Style Invitational’s entry form, such as this week’s, you’re likely to be asked to check off which of nine photos contain a picture of a vehicle, etc. And yes, of course, the bots are figuring it out.

CAPCOM: Capsule communicator, the person responsible for communicating via radio with the crew of a space mission. The government luvvvs portmanteaux.

CHYRON: Pronounced “ky-ron,” it’s the caption that runs under video clips, as on the news, and named for a 1970s manufacturer.

CONLANG: Constructed + language, a language that’s purposely invented, such as Esperanto or Klingon, rather than one that develops organically. My guess is that conlangs tend to have a lot of portmanteau words, like conlang.

COTIJA: A hard, white, crumbly Mexican cheese, described as resembling a cross between feta and parmesan. It doesn’t melt.

EMOJI: Well, you know what that is. But did you know that the name doesn’t come from “emotion,” as “emoticon” does? According to M-W, it’s a Japanese portmanteau: “e” for “picture”; “moji” for “letter” or “character.” Also, it says, the plural may be either emoji or emojis.

EW: Non-tournament Scrabble players are surely not turning up their noses at this immensely helpful addition to the two-letter-word list.

EXOME: Pronounced EX-ome, it’s another portmanteau, exon + genome. The exome is the portion of the genome known to encode proteins; sequencing the exome rather than the entire genome is less costly but still yields useful data.

FACEPALM: A noun or a verb referring to covering your face in dismay.

FARRO: A large-grained kind of wheat that is nutritious and delicious. (You may notice that I seem to find every kind of food delicious. This is not quite true: I can’t learn to like Asian bitter melon, and, well, Peeps and candy corn aren’t food, so they don’t count.)

FROWNY: M-W lists it as a noun as well as an adjective. So: Does it really take more muscles to frown than to smile, as your aunt’s favorite chain email insists? Snopes determines it “unproven,” but does supply an amusing variety of muscle counts.

GAMIFY: It does not mean to make something smell like roadkill; it’s adding games to training programs to make them more interesting and understandable. Gamification is the noun.

HIVEMIND: The one-word variant of hive mind, “the collective thoughts, ideas, and opinions of a group of people (such as Internet users) regarded as functioning together as a single mind,” as a hive of bees does. I wouldn’t say the Loser Community is “a single mind,” opinion-wise, but it’s a heck of a collective repository of knowledge and source of wit.

JUDGY: Pejorative for the already-by-now pejorative judgmental.

LISTICLEList + article, an “information” format popular with those who tend not to read two paragraphs in a row.

MACARON: A little French meringue sandwich cookie. It is, needless to say, delicious. Not the same as macaroon or Macron.

MULLOWAY: “A large, silvery fish (Argyrosomus japonicus synonym A. hololepidotus) of chiefly coastal waters from Africa to Australia that is valued as a food and sport fish. I have never had this fish, but I am sure that it is delicious.

NUTJOB: Choose your own example.

NUBBER: In baseball, a weakly hit grounder.

OK: Added for the two-letter spelling. M-W dates it back to 1839, and says it was a joke-spelling abbreviation for “all correct.”

ONBOARD: As an adjective, describing what’s carried in a vehicle, etc. Huh, I see that M-W does not yet acknowledge its corporate-speak use as a verb: to introduce and integrate a new employee into the workforce. Nor does it say it’s an adverb, as in “the new passengers came onboard.” I guess aboard still lives.

PAPASAN: A bowl-shaped chair on a cylindrical base, usually wicker or rattan. What you get at Pier 1.

PIZZAZZ: That fourth Z adds that much more ... flair and panache!

PUGGLE: Pug x beagle, yet another portmanteau crossbreed.

ROOTKIT: A malicious piece of software that grants a remote operator complete access to a computer system.

SANTOKU: A Japanese chef’s knife whose top curves downward at the tip.

SCHNEID: A losing streak. It derives in some complicated way from a German idiom for tailor that was used in card games.

SHEEPLE: “People who are docile, compliant, or easily influenced : people likened to sheep.”

SHO: An archaic monetary unit once used in Tibet — and surely included now only to provide a strategically useful three-letter Scrabble word.

SRIRACHA: Now-ubiquitous red hot sauce (not a trademark!). It is delicious but not my favorite red hot sauce, which is this.

SUBSTORM: A localized disturbance of the earth’s magnetic field in high latitudes, typically manifested as an aurora.

TRUTHER: M-W defines it as “one who believes that the truth about an important subject or event is being concealed from the public by a powerful conspiracy.” In actual use, it’s a disparaging term to describe someone who’s taken in by crackpot claims and theories.

TWERK: Twerking: Sexually suggestive dancing characterized by rapid, repeated hip thrusts and shaking of the buttocks especially while squatting. First known use: 2001. So think of all the years when the word existed but you didn’t have to read about it. But have you tried doing it?

UPCYCLE: To recycle into a product more valuable than the original, as to make expensive shoes from plastic bags.

VAPE: To inhale an electronic cigarette. 

WAYBACK: The area in the very back of a van or SUV, the equivalent of the trunk of a sedan. 

WORDIE: Someone who’s fascinated by words and language. I don’t know anyone like that.

YOWZA: Interjection “used to express surprise or amazement.” 

ZEN: A Buddhist sect, or, lowercase, “a state of calm attentiveness in which one’s actions are guided by intuition rather than by conscious effort.” Another long-overdue and direly needed addition to the three-letter Scrabble list. Not to mention the list of Z-words.

ZOMBOID: The adjectival form of zombie. While the zomboid form of adjective would be aaaaaad-jehhhhhhhc-tivvvvvvvve.


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


I have been directing our club since 1986 – that’s 32 years and I put a lot of time, effort and love into making this a fun and competitive club!  And although our club is so much a part of me I realized that some New Rules had to go into effect IMMEDIATELY for me to continue as your director!

 

1.    GETTING TO CLUB ON TIME!

Starting immediately, Game 1 will begin at 5:50 PM!  

Therefore, I suggest that you get to club no later than 5:45 PM.  At 6:45 PM, the song "Rocky's Theme" will play which will announce the IMMEDIATE end of your game no matter whose turn it is.  Pens down.  It's OVER!  Your score sheets will be given to me at once so that we can be paired for our next game. 

Game 2 will then begin at 6:50 PM with the alarm sounding at 7:45 PM.

Game 3 will begin at 7:50 PM and the final alarm will go off at 8:45 PM. 

We will be out of Veterans Park before 9:00 PM so that Evelyn, the recreation center worker, doesn't have to wait for us anymore and can close the recreation center when she is supposed to!

Let me explain this a little bit more….

I don’t care if there are only a few people here at 5:45 PM.  First come, first served.  When you come in you will be paired with the person who came in right before you.  If there is an odd number of people, you will have to wait until someone else comes in and that is whom you will play…..and so on.  If you feel like you won’t have enough time to play a game that will end when the alarm sounds, you can choose not to play that game and wait for the next game to begin (but the full night’s fee will be paid).  If you end up sitting out because you were the last one in after 5:45 PM, this will not count as a “sit out” on my list.  If you are not happy with this, you are certainly free to leave.  If we are still odd after the first game, I will then use the sit-out list for the next two games. 


 2.   COMPLAINTS

This one is simple….I just don’t want to hear any more of them! 


3.   TEMPERATURE OF ROOM

If you have a problem with a hot room, please call the Rec Center earlier in the day of club to make sure that the air conditioning is working that night.  If you can't deal with having just the two fans that night, please stay home in the comfort of your own air-conditioned place.

4.   MATCH-UPS

Don't tell me that you don't want to be matched up with any specific person.  It's not going to happen!  We try to randomly match up the first game so whomever you are randomly matched up with, you will play.  Sometimes you might be matched up randomly with the same person a few weeks in a row.  That's life.


5.    TALKING

When I am making announcements, I expect all the talking to stop so that I can be heard and we can get on with our games.  This also comes under the heading of "Common Courtesy, Consideration & Good Manners."


6.   SCORE SHEETS

Every week I get score sheets without names of opponents, without names of opponents, without bingos listed and many other errors.  From now on I will just enter what is there.

I think we can still have a fun club even with these new rules.  All you have to do is come here earlier and have some consideration for me when I am talking and not complain about things.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the players who have attended our club since these New Rules have gone into effect. I am happy to say that there has been a lot of understanding and agreement with these new rules from our attending members.  Not only does our club run much smoother now but we are also able to leave in plenty of time before the recreation center closes!
