 Well, after the Board of Directors Meeting this weekend, this thread is
pretty much over.  Everyone who will fly Intermediate will have to come up
with a new free style as the rules change proposal to increase the total
sequence K from 175 to 190 was approved.  Get your red and blue books out
this winter folks!
