> Immediately after Alisha's remarks (and our recitation of "I, Tivar

> A) To the Dons: figure out where you fit in chronological order if

> B) To the non-Dons: Have in mind who you want to challenge in the

> 4. Please, please, please take care of yourselves. The temperature

> lots of fluids and mind that tempers flare quickly in such weather.
> Alisha's last Queen's we had NO heat casualties in the tournament

> 106 degrees). I want to keep my record clean.
