Congrats again to Vincent Van Dover who went undefeated (8-0) at the Summer Kickoff Tournament. The community room at Doobie’s church was spacious, light-filled, and well-equipped. In addition to running the tournament like butter, Doobie treated us to a tasty lunch: pulled pork sandwiches, Greek pasta salad, watermelon, tiramisu, lemonade, margaritas, and ice cream sundaes.
The farmer’s market was fun and included cookies, bars, raspberry jam, spiced nuts, potted plants, etc. After selling the rest of the leftover cookies at Tuesday night club, we raised about $128 in total for the Word Cup. Thanks to Sue Hoehn for helping me organize the sale and also to everyone who contributed by donating, buying, or both.

Anamonic of the Week
Anamonics are phrases or words in which all of the letters combine with the stem word to form legit words. The best ones are those which are easy to remember because they relate to the stem word in an obvious way. Also, the more concise, the better, though concision should not supersede the memorability of the phrase. (BTW, anamonic is not a legit word).
Some of the best anamonics are ones that define the stem word perfectly since it makes them easy to remember.
