clarissa and i recently went to sarasota, florida. despite terrible (cold and windy) conditions, double black placed second in regionals thus it won a bid to the 2008 club series championship. among the 12 teams, we were seeded #10. one of our goals was to make it to nationals, so we entered the tournament with nothing to lose. despite a win over a former national champion, we mustered a 3-4 overall record. there is always next year!
