Except the amazing scores in Calendar, the other scores are of course are lower than what is expected to happen next month in the International Memoriad 2016.

But this is understandable, since it's an Open and not a Global memory event. Nevertheless it was nice to see some scores in all of the 14 categories.

But anyway, congratulations to the winners
