  So, what would it take to get the BOD to formally look into the issue of 
including JPF as a routine report for all contests?  I would submit this a rule 
proposal, but I'm not sure that a rule change would be appropriate in this 
instance.  Besides, it most likely would not make it through the Rules 
Committee for consideration.
