UVSC Session Report Sunday, January 26, 2020 (Session #262) (authored by BJ) After a long, successful run at the Tip Top Pottery Studio, our club has now relocated to the Norwich Public Library for our regular sessions, of which this week's was the first. We've also switched to Sundays, though the new schedule is still being finalized. Don, Tim, and Andrew were able to join our regulars (Ellen, Margaret, Marilyn, Iliana and me) for this first regular session at the new location, and together we played 17 total games. Tim survived some close games and came away with the only perfect record at 4-0, but Margaret stole the show when she crushed her personal best high score by nearly 100 points with a 579 game! She had three bingos en route to that score, including SWANKIER for 110 points. Other interesting words that turned up included those below. There were a couple of mini-themes! RIYAL: the basic monetary unit of Saudi Arabia (and other countries) HALALA: a Saudi Arabian coin, 1/100th of a RIYAL ANTISERA: plural of ANTISERUM, a serum containing antibodies VIRION: a virus particle ZOON: (noun) the whole product of a fertilized egg (plural ZOA) ZOON: (verb) to zoom (hence ZOONS, ZOONED, ZOONING) SITH: since (archaic variant, nothing to do with Star Wars) DIZEN: to dress in fine clothes KOA: a Hawaiian timber tree (not a campsite chain) YOK: (noun) a loud laugh (also YUK) Pictured below is the board from Margaret's high game.
