A photo from the finals room of two nervous players: Ron Tiekert (Alpharetta, GA) (left) and David Gibson (Spartanburg, SC). John Chew sits in the background next to Jerry Lerman (Foster City, CA) who helped during the finals. This photo is so fuzzy because there was a lot of mist in the air refracting light from the light grid above. Note the long jib camera!
