8 is Enough Team Game & Potluck
This team game is fun and we need novices to allow the over 1500 players on team. Here is now it works: each team can only total 8 points, a non-LM is a 1, a LM up to 1,500 is a 2, and those over 1,500 are 3. Please let me know if you'd like to play and we'll help you find a team if you need help. Kim 651-271-3500.

Run by: Joseph Browan & coaches.
