Heh, I was just checking to see if anyone had started a thread to find who's messing about in Mesa. (Not me!) Good on you.

And good on Watchmen for taking a road trip.

Yep and Mountain Standard Time = Pacific Daylight Time, so we're stuck waiting for essentially two sets of west coast scores.

I'm always happy when the corps get over the Rockies. Posting scores in EDT while having a 9-5 makes it hard to get good sleep.

I spent many a late night waiting on scores when my son was with Crown and they went West. I thought that was the end of it. Now, I gotta keep up with Pacific Crest. Sigh! Oh, well -- they are on their way East.

As mentioned in the PC thread, it looks like the temperature at show time was right as 100 degrees. Hasn't changed according to weather.com.

The wife said PC had a very good performance, even considering the heat. She didn't get a chance to see Madison or Academy due to food truck chores.
