WVU Scrabble club?

Posted by Brad Mills
A few years ago I found mention of a Scrabble club at WVU. I emailed some of the contact people listed at the time, ran into a lot of dead ends, and finally gave up.

Today... Nessie surfaced from the loch as I discovered a link to the famed WVU Scrabble club.

No content at the link, unfortunately, but a tantalizing prospect nonetheless. Could somebody please plumb the depths and see what treasure is buried therein?

Huntington meeting #6

Posted by Brad Mills
Four people showed up at Java Joint for Saturday's meeting of NSA Club 767. Aaron McGuffin was out of town so I acted as guest director.

Here are the results:

Brad Mills 3-0, +243
Leah Gingerich 2-1, +69
Shelley Schiavone 1-2, -83
Brad Smith 0-3, -229

Bingos played were as follows:

Brad Mills: SAUNTER (68), LUNATION (59), ASTERIA (79), REASONS (65), SELTZER (89)
Leah Gingerich: STORAGE (82), SOUNDED (95), ARRIVED (83)
Brad Smith: MISTING (85)
Shelley Schiavone: GLORIES (75)

Highest non-bingo play was by Brad Smith - QUOTES for 61.

I hereby nominate Brad Smith for "phoney of the year award" for getting NN* on the board, and because his opponent (who shall remain nameless) didn't notice it until after Smith had drawn, it stayed!

Hope to see everyone in Huntington again soon.

ROFLMAO is not good

Meeting canceled tonight

Posted by Brad Mills
Tonight's Scrabble meeting at Los Agaves has been canceled due to the bad weather. It's been snowing nonstop since I got to work this morning and it doesn't look like it's going to quit - the National Weather Service is forecasting up to five more inches.

Stay home, stay safe, stay warm. We'll try for another Wednesday meeting later in the month.
