I just want to give e bid shout-out to the OLEFIN set. That set was a FANTASTIC set for the field, and I honestly think this is one of the best sets I've read this year (right up there with HSAPQ 22). The Kirksville kids had a fantastic time playing this set, so thank you to Daniel Hothem and everyone involved in writing OLEFIN.
And I also want to thank Charlie and Rock Bridge for hosting. If they hadn't hosted, Kirksville probably wouldn't have come, and this finish in their first pyramidal tournament this year has gotten me very excited.
