GNT Format: Going Forward
Art, I agree with all your points but one. I like the idea of multiple flights (how many is certainly open to debate). Multiple flights should immediately eliminate any thought of handicapping. No ideal way to handicap in any event.

Ira, you have always been a funny man! How did Houston go?
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
Hi everybody, I have been quite silent on this thread. For good reason: On the previous thread, I said so much I felt like some Senate member conducting a filibuster. Initially, I thought I had said it all -- and then some. Upon reflection, I realize I have not. I am ...
