At first, I was thinking that there is no need for

Along the way, others (anyone) could offer awards for
whatever "hill" they wanted to market.  So...why not

The bottom line is that we *want* more data.  The days
of "take it or leave it because the results are
printed in our magazine and there's only so much
space" are long gone (because they aren't printed
there anymore).

Contest sponsors...please, require us to supply more

ability to perform even better in your events.
