Dear Readers. This inadvertently did not get posted last week due to a computer error. It was accidentally deleted by the fingers attached to the computer in one’s brain.
These standings are thus outdated, and thus have been removed, but everything else is being posted now so you can see how people bowled a week prior. Apologies it was not intentional.
