 (26 participants with zero points)

 Congratulations to Profomisakari, who won in 2009 with a record 59 points.  Also, this is the third year (2011 & 2015) with 3 players hitting the 25 TORCH point bullseye (2012 had one bullseye).  Incidently, if Juryo 3 East Tokushoryu would have won the final TORCH MATCH, the top 3 would have been Sukubidubidu, Naganoyama, & kuroimori.  Shin-deshis kotoshikona, Naganoyama, and Unkonoyama made strong debuts. 

Thanks for participating and I hope you all can update your pick or, if a new player, submit a pick for next year. You can send your TORCHBEARER 2017 picks to me now, or wait until the Hatsu banzuke is released.  An invite (with rules for new players) will be out soon.  Pick one rank and one rikishi where you think the TORCH will be at the end of the year.  This sumo game has a prize.  New players are always welcome.

Again, thanks.
