There you have everything through August, folks. Gotta tie as we begin to approach the year's end, eh? szabs and maninmidohio are nose-to-nose (with Mugaboo just a whisker, or three, behind 'em). And now that it's October? Hopefully September's results will show up here in a little more timely a way. I'm slow ... but ultimately pull through eventually ....

Well done to everyone! And congrats to our leaders Szabs and Maninmidohio.

Huge thanks to Gats for putting up the table.
