 I am reminded of the past when a prominent Hartford, CT. club refused to
accept for club aggregate the score of a member admiringly running high power.
That episode had reaching satisfaction for the club and finally for the
gentleman involved.  The "peer pressure" needed for enforcement of a code of
conduct lies within the clubs themselves and  with the sponsors of the event,
but the ultimate decision to comply lies with the individual.


The early days of the NCJ dealt with this subject on a continuous basis. Of
the dozens of proposed solutions, the only one that has any possibility of
success is peer pressure. What is the point of cheating when those whom you
are trying to impress know it? There are a few who continue to revel over
their empty victories, but unenforceable rules aren't going to make things any
