Volunteer Exploitation!  Don't put another box out Jim.  STOP.  I know
exactly where you are coming from.  Now here is how we could fly IN UNMARKED
BOXES.  I have been to lots of contests with 3 corners, some with no center
X, and several where one entire set of "outs" from one corner judge were
thrown out.   If the majority in the IAC simply objects to setting out a
marked box, fine.  Too much trouble, fine.  But let us put the corner judges
out anyway.  One "out" (penalty) for you, will be the same as an out for me,
or an out for her...ect., the same exact handicap for everyone.  When you
can't see the corners/end/center, we won't fly/drive it so far, and you will
end up pulling it in tighter.  

HEY!  We don't NEED no stinking markers.  We NEED the penalties!  Make box
marking optional.  Hopefully the pilots who want a marked box will show up
extra early to mark the box all by themselves.  Yeah!  Drop box marking as a
requirement for the contest altogether.   A lot of this is about reducing
volunteer workload.   Right?
