Not golf re my point...... golf scores do not depend on the cooperation of
a fellow golfer.  Whatever a golfer does is entirely his own biz, not
helped nor hurt by a fellow golfer .... and each golfer can keep his own
score, too.

However, with some contests, the behavior of the other ham can definitely
help or hurt YOUR score.   Unusual cohabitation by competitors not equaled
in any other sport.  73, Charly
