Wrapping up a few loose ends....
1. The overall results
, with Greg Ahlswede and Evalin Brautigam taking the wins.
2. Despite the wet conditions -- Mike's Maze had between 3 and 3.5 inches of rain on the day of the event, but fortunately all before we got there -- (or maybe because of the wet conditions?), the vibes seemed especially good.
3. Very much appreciated was the great clean-up job. With everyone pitching in, controls were retrieved, all the gear was packed up and stowed away, and various items of wet and muddy clothing were taken home (then to be thrown away?). All in about 20 minutes. Wonderful.
4. As for next year, info is here
. Anyone interested in helping a little?
5. This was the 9th time we've been at Mike's -- 7 main events (2010-2016) and 2 second chances (this year and one of the first couple of years) -- and it seemed to me that it was a good as any of them. But that's no reason not to keep trying new things in the future.
And, yes, we do seem to have a good bit in common with Calvinball. :-)
