n  7:00 999er game – CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP.  What do you have from the underwater city of Gungan?  Bring it along for 35 bonus points for your house.

Thursday – THE PHANTOM MENACE – The Droids managed to rally today for masterpoint placings as they beat the field with a whooping 8.30 (Jedi 6.93; Storm Troopers 6.62; M. Falcons 6.49) this has launched them to come close to overtaking the Millennium Falcons – and a shot at one of the top two spots.  The StormTroopers did dominate the field today for Team Spirit points with the help of Trish Hattie and her Racing Pods picking up 510 spirit points.  The Droids are indebted to Sandra MacDonald for the ‘capes’ and other paraphernalia for spirit points – and for the first time the Droids had a daily lead for point total.  Masterpoint winners today were the Bills (Halliday & Cruden) for the Droids and the Millennium Falcons  (3.21)

The 749er game proved to be profitable for the Jedi as two members partnered up, Dickran Malatjalian and Cynthia Burney to come first for overall masterpoints for the house.  Some bonus points are still to be added to the totals but the current standing (midnight Thursday) are:

StormTroopers – 8671 – taking the lead
Jedi – 8492
Millennium – 7156 (closing the gap)
Droids  - 6960  (not out of the picture – we have the weekend to pull it off!)
