Aubrey (@starshaped), Doreen (@beerzengirl), Derek (@seacoastbarscne), Norm (@RealBeerNut), Sam (@thevandaley), Sean (@2beerGuys), and especially the guy who I brought coffee to last year at 5:30am, again the first guy in line, well done!

The general consensus (from 4 people I talked to out of the 240 in this bar) is the scratch ticket idea was a not so good idea. We will see if they bring back the tickets or if they try something new next year. Until then, enjoy the daft or offer up a good trade to those with a winning ticket(s).

Time to mingle and get some reactions from the crazy people who waited hours
