The U3A Scrabble Group---

Continues to meet Friday mornings-in the Kirkwall Town Hall at 10 a m -

A New Year project is to have Rummitub as an alternative-we have one ot two experts in the group-the rest are more or less beginners-

We do make a note of new words-( new to some of us)

and here is a selection of them-

Stope-step like excavation

Cate -delicacy

Bizes -dry cold wind

Noil-short or knotted fibres

Trat-type of fishing line

Kinin-type of polypeptideConge-permission to depart

Oba-Yorba chief

Mome-a fool

Boi -a lesbian who dresses like a boy

Sard-variety of chalcedony


Haboob-sand storm


Our numbers remain stable-we usually have three tables of 4 people-

There is always room for more!

I should mention that ,although we meet weekly-not every one comes each week-

We just  " turn Up"!
