I came in 3rd place in the Scrabble Hustle last night.

At the Bison Trail start, I had a D. At the Sunken Gardens stop, after quickly and successfully spelling “segue,” I picked up a Z. At 11th and C, after successfully hopscotching up some stairs in cleats, I picked up an N. Plan A foiled. I snagged a Y at 8th and Van Dorn, then the crucial E at Irvingdale Pool. With a sprint to the finish, I was the third racer to arrive, affording me the all-important triple letter bonus on my Z for the word ZED, 33 points.
Clint had the lead with a first finisher bonus triple word on QUIZ, 63 points.
Ryan, the second finisher, held on fourth place overall with a double word score on ETCH, 18 points.
Coming in in the middle of the pack of racers with the night’s only bingo was Brandon, who played VAGINAL for 61 points — 11 for the word and 50 bonus points for the bingo — landing him in 2nd place.

Great race, Dan Kroll.
