Finals 3

Robin has arrived and she is working with Jesse Matthews (Kelowna BC).

Adam opens with HIND

James: get IMPORTED down, our first bingo!

Adam: CEEFNRT Robin asks: is UNIBROW good now? She hears yes. UNBOAT maybe? Maybe keep two vowels, like he does, says Joshua. WE had wrong rack, been corrected, he played ENFORCE, we like.

JAMES: ABNOSUW He tried BAWSOUND* on the tripled but it got challenged off.


LOTTE, good.

James: played BOW, we agree.

Adam: DLORTVY Can we get rid of the V? FLAVONE is what Jesse suggests. Robin thinks it may be dangerous..... Opens the board.... He did FAME, we like.

James: AAEENSU He has to get rid of EAU says Robin. UREA goes down. We like.

Adam EGLORVZ He played GROVEL, we like.

James: AEEINST none of his bingos fish. Robin asks us where he would play off an E. Zev shouts GROVELED. He did BE. It is okay we think. Right idea, but wrong spot. WE liked GROVELED


James: AEINOST ATONIES/HINDS go down, we love!, so does Quackle!

Adam: CAILNOZ We see ZA for a bunch of points. Some say CALZONE. Joshua says, "I guess ZA is almost as good as a CALZONE." We all laugh. ZIN, we like, but it leaves an E hook.

James: ?AEKRSW REAWAKENS/ZINE we like. Will he play it?

Robin asks what is the bingo with these tiles through NO (not fitting on the board) SNOWMAKER. He played WAtERSKI, which we like, but it is 19 points less...

Adam: ACJLOST TAJ, we like

James: AHIMNOQ Any reason not to play QAT, Robin asks? down it goes.

Adam: CELORSY CRYOLITE, Jesse said and Zev seconded. (robin says good with C or K) HE found it!!

James: GHIMNOS We say he has to try MOSHING! He plays EMOS. we are sorry., we liked MOSHING.

Adam: ?BIIIIU 399-376, adam's lead. BI, we like, so does Quackle.

James: AGHILNP We like HIP over WATERSKIS....

Robin says, "I've been watching James all weekend, he makes so many beautiful plays."

Can we find any way for James to win? We suggest he needs to draw the blank to pull it out, which is an impossilbity, since we know where it is.

He played GLOP. WE liked okay, he is in a tough spot.

Adam: IIINUX? IXIa, we like.

James: AHIIN All over but for the crying, unfortunately. HI, pretty good. :)

Adam: INU UNI?

Adam wins the CNSC for the fifth time! 461-437! Yeah Adam!
