Traditional final posting first... separate message for "envronmental issues".
Well, the good news is that I think I got it pretty much accurate. The bad news is
that Wayne Habberstad may have slipped between the floorboards. He posted his vote in
the old forum, just hours before it died, apparently. I hope he wasn't crushed in the
debris!

There was a tie between Bill Hirst and Dodi Schultz. Based on the rolling scores posted
in the tapcis.com forum, Dodi is our next dealer and Bill is the "real winner"! Runner-up
was Chuck Emery, by my calculations.

Now to test the formatting (I used Autodealer)

For those who do not recall -- Toni is renowned for her Armenian word ("vartabed") so long ago -- I thought one would be fitting for her first deal in the new environment <g>

Toni, I suspect that Wetz and Wetzstein are the same person, unless you believe otherwise. I've made that assumption in the rolling scores.
