Re: 2013 Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Medal Ceremony and Closing Credits

Many thanks to you, DoT, as well as everyone else who makes this possible. I'm just happy to have made my second TOC, especially with the depth of the competition this time around.

I'll be in Italy next week; but not even the cold, plastic-surgered & probably unsanitized hand of Berlusconi could keep me from playing in the SHC TOC.

Re: 2013 Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 6 Instant Replay Thread
