Well, we didn’t quite hit the record at OC Broomfield but it sure felt like it – 17 teams and no open tables anywhere.  And, OMG, did they come out to play!

Round one was hotly contested with two teams tieing with 9.5 points – Eleanor Beersby and Jiggly Titmice.  And their answers were so close that I had to break out the calculator to determine a winner!  Eleanor won it. And to top it off, we had 8 teams within 2 points of them: What’s Your Beef?, Profit, SVT, Not Quite There, Tess, McBilder, Bionic Cows, and Mustard.

We lost SVT, Brew Crew, Meth Lab Rejects, D&M, and Mustard, which allowed some people at bars and railings to sit down, and we were joined by Castration Station. When the dust settled before round 2 started, there was still only one open booth in the back. Yowzer!

McBilder won round 2 with some margin, but there was a clump of teams all gathered close to 2nd: Jiggly Titmice, Not Quite There, Yes, That, and Eleanor Beersby.  Some teams really started to make use of their style points such as Castration Station, Bionic Cows, and What’s Your Beef?

After round 2, the space opened up a little with Profit, Freuds Missing Stage, Crotch Duster, and BDay Girl leavingNeil Young came out just for round 3 and so he could satisfy his trivia jones.  We were glad to have him.

Round 3 proved to be close as well with Eleanor Beersby just edging out McBilder, and Not Quite There close behind but not quite there.

With those strong round 3 performances McBilder and Eleanor Beersby took home top points.  Too bad we didn’t have a gazillion prizes, ’cause there were so many teams oh, so close!

We’ll have to try again next week to give away prizes to those that missed it.  See you then?

Ciao for now,

– Keith
