Congratulations everyone and especially to my wonderful sister-in-law, who placed 28th (3rd in Level 1). I'm nearly as excited about a family member placing as I am when I place.

Big old Goliath
Was not quite a behemoth
David found a little rock

So far, I'm pretty happy with it. :lol: I hoped for maybe 15th place in the level winners, but I never dreamed I would get an EC. CONGRATULATIONS to everyone else.
