We stopped at Don Pablos for lunch before heading south to WDW. Dinner was at the California Grill. The Dreaded Day involves the discussion of every question and every possible answer that might be encountered during the tournament. This was a travel day for the teams. I had a few small assignments so Lyd and I spent the morning in MGM with lunch at the Brown Derby. This was the 1st full day of competition.  I read questions to competing teams in these 1st two rounds and the results are here. The teams that were not successful yesterday had a chance to stay alive and move to the semi-finals. I was the Coordinating Judge for these two rounds before we went to EPCOT, despite Alberto!
