Just exchanged text messages with a friend, who is at Cooper this evening with his crew. I had explained 'boatyball' to him several days ago and he opened an account. He signed-on at midnight last night while at the Bight on Norman, finding immediately four of the eight had beat him to the site. He reserved the fifth of the eight balls and arrived at Cooper this afternoon at about 3:00 pm. They found someone on the ball, although they were simply hoping nothing would happen (they did not have a reservation, and perhaps had no idea how to get one). They moved their boat without incident, once my friend explained they had a reservation for the ball.
