Is there no Zoom call this week?
I thought there was going to be... it's the same link every week:

...so there's one way to find out :), I'll try opening...

Go to "Come Aboard" under Board Index and then FAQ . The Zoom link is there. I think that Sal is out of town this week, but was going to try to set it up for us to do it without him. I am about to try it.

I should have tried the link, but got busy prepping dinner. Will try again next week. Thanks!

Sipping a drink on shore and at sea has long been a part of the culture of contest fans--so this one was right in your element. We had 1514 entries, about 76% correct. Can someone explain the 54 submissions of AMARETTO? Plus OUZO (20), DRAMBUIE (10), SAMBUCA (8), FRANGELICO (7), LIMONCELLO (7) and a bar cart of others.

Congrats to this week's winner, Elisabeth Slotkin of Jacksonville, Fla.!
Maybe it was what they were drinking to drown their sorrow for not getting the meta?
