Dear APS Members and Guests,

The culture of competition that is deeply ingrained at APS was once again on display at our winter contest meeting. The assortment of contest officials and guests who were not anonymous included Sergeants at Arms Gail Proto and Win Almira Mandy and Timer Ruimin Pan. APS members who served as contest officials were Ballot Counter Neerja Purang, Contestant Interviewer Myron Tucker and Timer/Photographer Derek Chen. Everyone was treated to a delicious spread of snacks courtesy of Georgia Jones and Marcia Berry.

The Contest Chair was Pam Burke and the Chief Judge was Georgia Jones.

The contestants and the outcome for each contest were identical, something rarely seen. The contestants were: Harry Aneziris, Marcia Berry, Bill Kennedy, Todd McKinney, and Brian Robinson.
