Session Notes - September 17, 2015 Session

This session marked the seventh week of NASPA Club #565 (Thursday Night Scrabble Club)'s 2015-2016 season!

The tournament rules division was joined by 3 players who played 12 games in which we scored 4,776 points for a 398.0000 point-per-game average. Of the 19 recorded bingos we played, one was a phoney that went unchallenged.

Some numbers and whatnot for the tournament session include:

Some interesting bingos:

We featured two regular contests this week.

If you have a contest idea or perhaps a favorite contest from the past, let me know, we'll try to work it into the mix. This week's contests were from the club archives.

We had 3 paid players this week.

The first regular contest was the Colors Of Our Lives Contest for the highest scoring play of a valid main word that is, or incorporates somewhere within it, the name of a color. Ed Saunders picked up the $2.25 prize with the only entry of the night (RED)IALED for 72 pts.

The second was the "G" What A Contest for the highest scoring play of a valid main word that begins with the letter "G". Bob Yarmchuk scored 24 with GAE. Ed Saunders upped that to 29 pts for GEY. Travis Carlson wins the $2.25 payoff with 33 pts for GOY.

Travis Carlson took home the biggest prize of the night as he strung his rack of ?AEMTTU between the separated letters "L" and "S" to form the 9-letter bingo MUTILATES for 68 pts. Travis picked up $8.97 for his efforts from the 9+ Bingo Progressive Jackpot.

The other Progressive Jackpots went unclaimed this week and $0.56 will be added to them next session. We have paid out $64.20 in prizes this season. Click here for a complete list of prizes awarded during the 2015-2016 season.
