We started five minutes late, with all but one player arriving within five minutes of that, due to a tight lunch schedule and some leisurely Round 4 postgame analyses.

The best part of the event so far really ought to be the view from the playing room of the point where some believe that St. Paul was shipwrecked. I think the nonstop availability of tea, coffee, water, cake and cookies has to run a close second.
