All the teams seemed to be having a good time and Mrs The Millbrooker and I certainly did. Here's to hoping that the bar take made it worth Dick and Megan's while as well.
The results for anyone who might be interested in such trivia:
In pole position: Syzygy with 82 out of a possible 100.
2nd (after a nail-biting tie break): Spitfire with 73 (plus tie break win)
3rd: Fork Handles with 73 (lost tie break for runner up position)
4th: Bethany Cottage Bevy with 71
5th: Now We Are Six with 70
6th: Mimble Wimble with 54
