Players still returning from the south, Mason City, Albert Lea, Rose Creek, and  Austin. Players come early and enjoy lunch at the Senior Cafe which opens for serving at 11 a.m.

As we walked through the players one day, we overheard a remark about the fact we never heard of a runner up. We do that quite often, such as a one half point makes the difference between placing or not placing. We will start reporting runner-ups, which means teams will be listed, but will not be in the money.
