I dont seem to recall this much interst in the Cafe Games last year. I guess we do have a lot more members than we all think. Good to see.
No way there were this many players last year. The membership has definitely increased, and more people are seeing the games and playing them. I know for a fact there weren't well over 100 people playing Ladders last year. I don't think there's much of a chance of me searching through all the pages of picks to find bad losses...there are just too many!
We'll see what happens as the season progresses, though...a lot of times the members get complacent or forget about things near the end of the season.
