Comments on Week 12 Scores  (to be listed shortly on on results page).
    -- N4OGW has nailed first place in the East of Ms. River division this
year after a heartbreaking 3rd place last year due to a Thursday trip out of
town, leaving Tor with only 11 of the required 12 minimum weeks.  In the
NCCC division, N6RO, our perpetual winner, will be on top again, as will
K7SS in the W of Ms. River division.
    -  The close competiion for '09 is in our Newcomers Division, where N0KK
and N8EA are too close to call.  This fact may not be obvious from the score
tables except by noting that N8EA has participated in only 9 weeks and
posted the highest weekly score of 2345 last week, against N0KK's 1736. Next
week Joe will drop a low Wk 4 score of 768 points.
