FWIW, I enjoy seeing other regional contests discussed here, especially since
some of us are willing to travel to do contests we can't do at home.

Sorry for stealing bandwidth with my thread.
You are most likely correct that SS of course requires the same attention and
care as any other “regional” contest.
I just need to “filter” those threads and focus on all the other good stuff....
Just lately have been a lot of postings that, at least for me and possibly for
some other non-NA, have been “less interesting”. That is MY (our) problem - not
a problem to the list as such.
I apologize in case I stirred up unnecessary emotions!
Creeping back under my stone again, and using my big delete-finger and
ignore-eyes when “less interesting” and less valid threads appear on this list.
