CONDOLENCES (and Congratulations?) to THE BIGGEST LOSERS! The first team out was Team 48 – Pivotal 1. You have won six bottles of wine – one for each of your team members. We will be letting everyone know by the first of the week when all of the wine will be available for pick up. We are hoping to have an opportunity to take a few pictures for our Facebook page.

The teams are now starting to dwindle down – to those of you who have been eliminated, thank you once again for your support!

GOOD LUCK to those who are still in the game! After tomorrow’s draw we should have a pretty good idea of who is going to be battling it out at the end.
