Robin Lewis (Houston, TX): 644 points

The directors of Club #359, along with its members, want to congratulate Robin Lewis on her superb score of 644 on Sunday. Robin opened with MILIEUS for 74, then proceeded to play NATRONS (75), EXPLORER (101), COENZYME (114), and then bingoed out with REALISTS (77).

Wow, 5 bingos and 644. Way to go Robin.

— Carole Miller, Co-Director, Houston Club #359

Geoff Thevenot (Austin, TX) in The Austin Chronicle

Congratulations to Geoff Thevonot for winning The Austin Chronicle Adult Spelling Bee. The paper featured the competition in its sports column “Playing Through” by Thomas Hackett:

The Threadgill’s competition started with nearly 200 entrants. Each round cut the field roughly in half, until finally Thevenot was in a showdown with Dave Riddle, a lawyer from Pacific Grove, Calif. The word that tripped up Riddle was “onomatopoeically.” In case you’re wondering, that's spelled, “o-n-o-m-a-t-o-p-o-e-i-c-a-l-l-y.”

How do I know this? Because Geoff Thevenot said so.
