  1. The Denker link still goes only through round three. I pointed this out to the backroom mailbox yesterday and they updated it to one through round five, and now the round three one is back. Since I hardly think they would intentionally relink the old one, it would seem there is a system glitch.

    Three great events, getting stronger every year. I hope the Delegates are wise enough to add the proposed Senior event to the lineup.
