Re: RC: RC: First vs. BC

Heidi, First we will gather the facts as they have been published.  Thats a
huge task just for openers.  After that Truman will be turned loose to do
his majic with the math.  Then well let the BOD try to figure out what to
do with it.  I've always felt that the removal of the full point down to a
half point for weight was a mistake.  Well just let the numbers take us
where they may.  You do make a good point regarding the scoring.   Jerry
