Pellinen/Odom top Madison tourney, Wade conquers Division 2

From Lynda Finn:

Madison 17 Div 1

Division 1 winners

Minneapolis power Scrabble couple, Steve Pellinen and Lisa Odom top the Madison Summer Tournament. Thomas Reinke finishes third. These three, along with Charles Reinke, dominated the tournament to such an extent that after the first 11 game round robin, they played between the four of them exclusively for the next 7 rounds. That means that each pair faced each other 3 or 4 times. What a tough line-up they had on the path to victory.

Performance prize went to Leslie Millard. Fun prizes went to Steve Pellinen, Thomas Reinke, Jason Vaysberg, Michael David, Samuel H Smith, Leslie Millard, James Frankki and Lynda Finn
