That is too bad.
I do not think self spotting or asking your pileup to
spot you are within the rules of this contest. The rules
do not spell it out very clearly but it is clear that no
self spotting is allowed for the Assisted catagory and
I would think this would apply to the multi-op catagory as well.
I think it is clear that all of the contest sponsors need to decide how
they feel about this sort of behavior and make a clear statement
in the rules they publish.
