Round 8 - All Good Music Festival - Prediction Game Recap
Thanks a bunch DenverMan
! Love playin!
(I think I should have 9 for last night, might be counting wrong, the only reason I care is that it'd make me the leader for a show and that'd just be really cool
While too far back in the pack to finish in front, CosmicCookie
was still determined to finish this round with momentum leading up to Fall Tour. Upon Furthur Review, it appears as though 9 points by CosmicCookie
awards the wearing of the tie dye jersey as winner of the round. DenverMan
, and Sustainabill
finished the round just a point behind CosmicCookie
after the score revision. The pack was bunched for the round, and there was little change of position.
maintained the high score and finished with 56 points, while wharfratross69
made up some ground but came up just one point short at 55. nycdave
captured third place with 49 points; just 3 points back was the group of dr bakes
, and rollawaythrdew
at 46. Sustainabill
followed with 42, Chester
with 41, and DenverMan
finished with 40 to round out the top ten finishers.
Congratulations to Straws
! Every tour you're right up there at the top. Enjoy your victories because soon you'll be watching out for the up-and-coming champions like CosmicCookie
, as well as some of those other folks in the top ten! Thanks to DenverMan
for keeping score, and promoting our enjoyment! May the Rules Committee
consider and accept the Rare Song Pick
idea. Unlike the technical difficulties that prevented posting for a show on the spring tour, the weather emergency shortened a show and some scoring for this tour. This game is like life, like Grateful Dead, it is what it is, warts and all.
Denver Man - thanks for keeping this going! We all appreciate all the work that goes into this. I was fun ~ remember "It is better to be lucky than good!" See you on the bus... - Straws
Round 8 - Canandaigua - The Music Stopped - Recap
I can't believe that I have been calling Liberty as the encore all tour and finally when it looks like it was going to be they get cut short. Ahhhhhh.......the irony of life.
Sorry that things got cut short for ya friends. It sort of leaves the universe not quite right. - Griff
An emergency declared by the venue's management abruptly ended this concert. This safety issue cut short a strong performance by straws
as he led the pack with a score of 8 points and enters the final round with the honor of wearing the tie dye jersey, and in first place overall. nycdave
continued his quest for victory with a strong score of 7 points in this emergency-shortened round. Mission in the Rain
, Box of Rain
and Mountains of the Moon
were unclaimed orphan songs.
A perfect score could provide 20 points to the successful player. Though not very likely, it is possible that an entrant with a score of at least 30 points could still be victorious. Straws
holds a narrow 3 point lead over Wharfratross69
, and nycdave
is only 6 points off the pace. All other competitors are 10 or more points behind the leader and in need of very strong scoring. May you experience a strong performance in today's tour closer!
Round 7 - Boston Sing-Along Night 2 - Recap
The first set of this show provided some surprising obstacles for most contestants. Only 12 points were tallied by 7 of the 21 entrants, and 7 of those points were accumulated by 5 contestants on the Alligator opener. Built to Last
and Big Railroad Blues
were orphan songs in this set as no one claimed them.
This show proved to be difficult for most until late in the 2nd set when Morning Dew opened the floodgates with 13 entrants scoring 18 points. For many this was their first correct call of the night. The scoring remained low until the 2nd encore of Touch of Grey which brought 22 points to 14 of the pack of 21.
for the lead on Touch of Grey, and led the tightly grouped pack with a score of 7. Patchmyfurthur, SunshineSue
, and Sustainabill
finished just a point behind the leader. Wharfratross69
once again has the privilege of wearing the tie dye jersey as winner of a round for the third time this tour.
has inched 2 points ahead of Straws
in the overall standings with 46 points. SunshineSue
has caught up with dr bakes
at 37 points for a tie at 3rd place while the leaders have created more space between them and the rest of the pack. With 2 more rounds to go, the outcome is still uncertain. A new leader could still emerge from the pack, but the time is getting short. Good luck to all!
Round 6 - Boston Sing-Along Night 1 - Recap
Joyful singing from the audience provided the spark for SushineSue
to capture the first of two rounds in Boston. This proved to be a close contest as rollawaythedew
were just a point behind her score of 9. May she enjoy her night wearing the tie dye jersey as winner of the round.
The victory by SunshineSue
moved her ahead of Chester
in the overall standings into third place. Just a point ahead of her is dr bakes
, but Straws
have moved furthur ahead of the pack by a comfortable 7-point margin. It has not yet become a two-horse race, but with the tour winding down, there is little time left for a miracle finish. Anything is possible especially with songs from earlier in the tour starting to reappear in the shows.
With 3 shows remaining, a dark horse could still emerge as the winner. Three perfect scores of 20 would probably be enough for a newcomer to become victorious!
Round 5 - Gilford - Recap
Once in a while you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right
that place was Gilford, NH. After posting nearly identical set list predictions for three consecutive shows, I finally had the light all shinin' on me
as 8 of 10 picks were played. Scoring 14 points propelled Sustainabill
into the top ten, and awards the tie dye leader's jersey for this round. This show proved to be a high scoring affair for several others as ChrisMurray416
, dr bakes
, and Straws
each had scores of 11. Several others also had favorable tallies.
pulled a little bit furthur
ahead of the pack with cumulative scores of 32 and 31, respectively. dr bakes
has settled into third place with 26 points, and Chester
follows the leaders with 24. The front of the pack has stretched its lead, but it's still anybody's game as a dozen players have the opportunity to be catapulted into the lead with a high-scoring round. The next round of this marathon is tonight in Boston. Good luck to all!
Round 4 - Cooperstown - Recap
has hit his stride and is setting the pace as he led the pack with a score of 7 at Cooperstown. 23atwell
were right behind him with 6 points, and Straws
rounded out the top finishers with 5 points.
is in a familiar position at the top of the leader board as he moved into a tie with Straws
at 21 points. 23atwell has joined Chester
with 17 points as the pack seems to be settling into leaders and losers. But anything can happen as we approach the midpoint, and a perfect score of 20 could boost anyone into the thick of it.
Round 3 - Philadelphia - Recap
This round ended in a 3-way tie for the lead as Chester
, and Straws
each finished with 7 points. They all wear their tie-dyed jerseys as winners of this round as they enter the Cooperstown Round. Straws
has overtaken MushroomMan
as the overall leader with 16 points. Wharfratross69
has moved into second place with a score of 14, and Chester
follow close behind with 13 points each.
Round 2 - Holmdel - Recap
were 2 of 5 in the pack of 23 who correctly chose Truckin as the show opener. DenverMan
had the hot hand in the first set as he also correctly chose a wild card pick and the closer. Before the night was over, Wharfratross69
would catch DenverMan
as he called 2 bonus picks in their exact locations. They finished the round in a tie for the lead with 7 points, and today they sport their tie dye jerseys as co-winners of round 2.
continued to lead the overall standings as he scored 5 points to bring his total score to 11. 23atwell
, and Straws
only trail MushroomMan
by 2 points, and the rest of the pack is not far behind.
Round 1 - Brooklyn - Recap
The first set opener, Feel Like a Stranger, quickly brought 2 points to 23atwell
, and MushroomMan
proceeded to burst ahead of the pack as he scored 4 more points in the first set. MushroomMan
each ended the first set with 3 points in a tie for second place.
continued to show the consistency that he exhibited during the spring tour as he scored another 3 points in the second set while rollawaythedew
scored 2 points and 23atwell got shut out. These 3 now lead the pack of 22 with 23atwell
sharing the lead as winners of the Brooklyn show. rollawaythedew
is just 1 point behind, and all competitors, including those who have not yet begun, still have excellent chances in the prediction game. Have fun!
