Revesby Club Tournament - August 15th 1998


76 Scrabblers competed in this tournament. This was some 15 to 20 fewer than usual and the smaller turnout was probably due to the cluttering of the tournament program in August, thanks to the introduction of the Border Challenge at Wagga Wagga and the second Baulkham Hills tournament in recent years. If success were measured in decibels, then the honours would go to Hanne Marks, who got the loudest cheer on winning the second door prize.

One of your co-authors experienced his worst result ever ( 1 from 6 ). He knew things were not going to go smoothly for him when he dropped in to the local shop to pick up the Sunday papers only to be informed that it was only Saturday. He then missed the turn on the way to picking up Jean Balmer. His first bingo, "DISASTER" did not come until the third (losing) game and in the next game he could only find "FAILURE".
