  1. Interesting, I wonder if clip board guys from DHS will be doing some recruiting and offering pencils ;-). Not sure they will be able to lure kids from the Cape….should be a great tourno…

  2. @Grasshopper: I am sure there will be many other schools represented by the clipboard gang – not just DHS. Foolish if they aren’t.

  3. @Grasshopper:
    I think that DHS have upgraded their pencil stock once again so the kids from the Cape are now a possibility too.

    But I think that at this point 95% of the boys already know what high schools they are going to.
