Scrabble at Cosmic Oasis tomorrow (Thursday)

Well, this winter has turned out to be much more crazy than I'd planned, and unfortunately I don't see it changing any time soon.  Due to family activities, I won't be able to make it Sunday club until March 16, so I'm postponing the March official meeting to that date.

However, on the plus side, I'm able to come out of my cave for some Scrabble at Cosmic Oasis in Richmond tomorrow, from 6-9pm.  Will anyone else from club be able to join me?

Club results for Feb. 17

Bingoes were scarce on my rack today, but I got to play ZAP for 71 points, which did not deter Victoria from shellacking me.

The Ladies' Brigade showed up today. However, Jan will be absent next weekend and I have to work.

IN OTHER NEWS: Bob Evans closes tonight for remodeling and is scheduled to re-open next Sunday at 7 AM. If they run over schedule, I guess there won't be a club meeting next weekend.

My brief hiatus continues...I won't be able to make it to club again today, but hopefully you'll see me on Scrabble Night this Thursday at Cosmic in Richmond. 

Who can make it to Bob Evans today?

Victoria the victorious, and other stories from Olive Hill

The Lexington club and the Charleston club's one-day tournament at Olive Hill drew 24 players, and no one was more successful than Victoria, who took division three with a perfect record: 7-0 and a plus-448 spread. Her average score was 358-294. Victoria picked up 59 rating points, cracking the 800 mark for the first time with a new rating of 811.

Betty finished 6-1, good for second place in division two, and because she was seeded seventh, her big day gained her 85 rating points, for a new high of 995. Rita from Bowling Green took division two, also with a 6-1 record but with a higher spread.

In division one, top-seeded Marc maintained his perch with a  6-1 record, narrowly losing to Steve in the final game.

Speaking of Steve, he finished second in division one with a 5-2 record while running the tournament smoothly. Thanks, Steve!

The 12 Lexington club members, including Marc and Andrea, gained a net 13 rating points.

February Official Meeting Tomorrow

Just a reminder that tomorrow is our February official meeting.  Unfortunately, with all the Scrabbling I've been doing the last several weekends, I have to take a break and catch up on other stuff, so I won't be there.  But don't let that stop you from coming out to Bob Evans tomorrow at 2pm!

Scrabble in Richmond Tonight

Just a reminder that Cosmic Oasis in downtown Richmond has their Scrabble night from 6-9pm tonight.  Margaret, Victoria, and I were there for the inaugural meeting last Thursday and we were all pleased with the service and accommodations there.

Who can make it there tonight?  I've been under the weather so I'm only a "maybe" at this point, but I'd love if at least a few of us can make it.
