SENSORY OVERLOAD! That’s a good way of describing round 8. We had 64 players come to play, out of which many had dressed up in costume. Extra special thanks to the dresser uppers! Game 7 of the World Series between Kansas City Royals and SF Giants was on TV and had many of us choosing machines in close proximity to the tube just to be able to catch a glimpse of another Giants triumph.

James had a another great night with 16.5 points, as did Louise. Allison and Richard L followed closely behind with 15.5, while Sally and Andrei each had 15 points.

In the standings, Andrei has a slim lead over James. Those two have pulled ahead of a pack of players fighting for good playoff position. In this moment, Gene holds the last A-division spot, only 0.5 points over rookie sensation Jaime. Two rounds to go of the regular season!
