Family vacations made turnout lower than usual this week, with 3 teams of regulars being joined by first-timers MoJo; for the 2nd consecutive week, we had a birthday celebrant among the participants! The newbies (MoJo) hovered near the lead in the early going, while Brown Chicken, Brown Cow and #momjeans set the initial pace: those two teams each scored 5-of-6 in Round 1 and 7-of-8 in the picture round. Brown Chicken's 6 in Round 3 moved them 1 point in front of #momjeans, while MoJo were only 3 points off the pace; those members of Band Of Bezonians NOT out of town lurched out of the gate and trailed the field early. Brown Chicken correctly (and impressively) named the "Guess Who" subject of Round 4 on the first clue for the maximum 10 points, the first of 3 consecutive rounds in which they got all 10 available points (while uncharacteristically electing not to double on any of those occasions). MoJo and the Bezonians each answered correctly for 8 points, while #momjeans seemed to sink their hopes with a -1 to fall to 4th place. The ladies rebounded quickly with 9-of-10 in Round 5, gaining 4 points each on Mojo and the Bezonians. When #momjeans and Band Of Bezonians each scored 7 out of 10 in Round 6, the positions were clearly defined entering the final round: Brown Chicken had a 16-point lead and were assured of victory barring a catastrophe. #momjeans led the Bezonians by 3 for 2nd place and MoJo were only 1 point out of 3rd position.
Round 7 proved to be exceedingly difficult, as the low score was 1 point (by 2 teams) and the high score was....2 points, also by 2 teams. #momjeans gained a point on their two pursuers to claim 2nd place, while the Bezonians held of MoJo by a point to finish 3rd. Brown Chicken, Brown Cow were deserved winners, having won maximum points (without doubling down) in 4 consecutive rounds and at least tying for high score in EVERY round. Hats off to the winners, and to all who participated....oh, and Happy Birthday Molly!
See you next week!
