    1. Well, if you were in the T8 then it’s accurate to say you were in the T12, yes? 😉

      Sorry, missed the posts on the AEG forum thread between the initial cut list and then when it was on T4. Post corrected.

  1. Thanks for collecting all these. There really does need to be more coverage of the game and the current environment.

  2. Sorry was out of it for short while so didnt notice the lists. Here was mine. Lafyette 7th place top lion:
