  • First Columbia convergence, complete with three #ShovelFlags. #TClaps to Chaser and Fountainhead for their excellent work on the two new ones.
  • Robber’s lead was original and spirited. Nice work.
  • Kotters to Queen Bee, Lambchop, and Luke. Glad you’re back.
  • Splinter was a bit taken aback when he joked we should count Russian Twists in Russian and Sway actually did. #AllTheRussianIKnow
  • DHS has painted lines on their practice field, a sure and welcome sign that football season is almost back!
  • DHS has also begun watering their practice fields again, a fact made soakingly clear to the 10 or so pax on that side of the COT when the sprinklers came on.
