  1. Is it possible that the HL on Steratore’s crew is Dana McKenzie. That would make a lot more sense (although sentimentally I wanted Mark Baltz to get it)

  2. Good crews all the way around. It looks to me thatPayne, Hussey, Wrolstad, hill, Boston, and P. Paganelli are becoming perennials in CC games.

  3. I am happy to see Paul king get a championship assignment. I worked with him as a high school official for many years.
    He is knowledgeable and very capable as well as a good rules man.

    Have a good game Paul !!
