Hi Doc -
Whatever you decide to do, I, for one, would like to commend you on the
fabulous job you have done, first upgrading the TR manual, and second
maintaining it's high quality and keeping up with the various upgrades. You
have created what I consider the best manual for the best contest logging
Thanks for all the hard work!
