I kind of agree with Ron here. The ultimate goal is to rank the pilots 
correctly in any given flight. The JPF seems arcane to me...I can't seem to 
wrap my mind around it. Reminds me of reading Stephen Hawkings' stuff. Seems 
simple 'till you think about it. Anyway, I'm interested in seeing if I rank 
the pilots in the same order, approximately, as other judges, and I also want 
to know if I have any bias that I don't know about, for or against a 
particular pilot, plane, etc. I think I'll look back at the last local 
contests results and scratch my head about it.
