The definition of the "target audience" is a bit vague. The word "beginner" 
doesn't tell me very much. Do we mean:
1. Someone who has done little contesting;
2. Someone who has a low license class;
3. Someone who has had a license for only a short time.

Each one of these would place different requirements on the design of a 
successful contest. The rest of the posting seems to imply that we are 
talking about item number 2, but I would like to be clear that that is 
really what the board of directors asked for; or is it instead someone's 
interpretation of what the board asked for?

It seems that our chance of hitting the target will be increased if everyone 
agrees on where the target is....

Hi Everyone, 

I have just been advised to join this list, as a forum for 
Contest Information etc., while I am looking mainly for contest 
rules, dates etc., I wonder if there is an FTP site for them, or 
anything like that.
