January 2017 Results

Congratulations to all of the winning teams in the January 2017 WTBBC, and thank you to all who entered.

We had an enormous turnout at weigh-in. We attribute that to the growth of the contest, and partly to the fact that we are paying out 5 places now. You just never know if that 24 pound cat might slip into 5th place.
