Emil Rem wins Winter, Terri Morigeau wins Div 2

Emil Rem won the Winter Tournament, with a win over George Macaulay in the final round. Both were at 9-5 going into the final, a full three games ahead of the rest of the pack. He credits his win to "playing for the love of the words, and not by cramming with flashcards and mnemonics". Wendy McGrath sorted out the competition of the remaining six, after she won in round 14 while the nearest to catch her, Wayne, did not.

In divison two, Terri Morigeau finished in first with an impressive 12-2 record. Rod Weis was second with 9-5 and Laverne had a monster tournament to finish 9-5 herself and take 3rd place. Honourable mention goes to Estelle Matthews, who finished with 8-6, also playing well above her rating.

New Ratings are up on the NASPA website.
