Phew. It's all come and gone as a blur. I typed and scribbled as fast as I could, but couldn't get things ready until about 4 PM. Gibson knocked off Luebkemann to send him back to 4th. Mallick's and CBB's wins moved them into 2nd and 3rd respectively, and Sam Rosin snuck into 5th. For a quick rundown of the rest, go to TSH Reports -> Prizes.
Miscellaneous prizes went to Kate Fukawa-Connelly (The Wordbook for playing COMPLINE, forming 6 other words for 90-something -- picture to follow), and to Dan Milton for SHITTING for 76 (getting Letterati by Paul McCarthy for that high Poo word). Some NAMPY awards were donated by Mike Baron; laminated cheat sheets for players who weren't quite at their potential yet. Ironically enough, all 5 recipients of the award didn't attend the ceremony. Donations of $60 (approximately 1.2 x (.5 * number of entries)) will be made to both cross-tables.com and John Chew, as thanks for their hard work and creativity. The EC, and many other tournaments, would in no way go as smoothly without their help.
Me, I packed up what was left of the scraps (wow, the room look like a tornado hit it, and there were several items left behind -- CBB left his clipboard, but I had left the venue before I got the message asking me to retrieve it for him, so if anyone picked it up, please let him or me know. Also of note, a bag of tiles, maybe a few racks -- not sure. Yes, more annotated games to come soon, as well as photos of the whole to-do. Meantime, do send me your feedback. You know where. I'm off like a prom dress!
