Help us stay awake (and warm!). Zone 2 snowballs for anyone that works us

Good points, Kevin.  My points of reference for sailboat racing largely 
involve dinghy racing many years ago, when I suspect things were much 
simpler.  In fact, you make a critical point that should be made any time 
one uses this metaphor to talk about contesting ...

Let's not rpt not let the lawyerizing do to radio contesting what it has
done to sailboat racing.  Decisions of the contest committee should be
final.  Anything not prohibited should be OK, but there should be a
strongly stated set of principles underlying the specific rules.  For
example, the whole debate about multi-single was neatly terminated, for
me, by someone's stating the principle that there should be only one human
brain contributing directly to the operation of a single-op station. Neat
... clean ... simple.  Now *all* we need is a consensus among contesters
that they support that and other basic principles, and maybe we can dodge
the America's Cup syndrome.
