And mine too. I think I answered for most organizers in that we are going to look at all options. This is what I told JB also. But we are also going to attend rallys based on the fun factor, and not the championship factor. First, I'm too slow and poor to chase a championship (3rd Nationally in G5 in 2003). And second, if it isn't fun, it's work.

You magnificent bas*ard... you're almost correct.
From Struck and White: "Exceptions are the possessives of ancient proper names in -es and -is, the possessive Jesus', and......"
Well, they don't mention Jens... but I'm ancient and consider myself the messiah...
Now, Halley, you can rightfully complain that I hijacked a thread.
Alas, I'm in the boonies of eastern Connecticut. (It's kind of like Ohio here.) On a good day it is a 2.5 hour drive to Manhattan. It's not an option for me right now, but I very much appreciate your kind offer. Perhaps another time.

And too many Jens as well..
Most of us still remember Rally-L !
I'll stick up for Jens. It's NOT what Jens call you, it's what OTHERS on this forum refer to you as. In the beginning (what ever that means, 2 years ago or so) I was equally confused. For those of us that have been around for many many years and know how heavily John Buffum is/was involved with things rally related, JB just naturally indicated John Buffum. It took me a while to figure it out and I felt like "complaining" also.
Edit for typo/spelling, because I do think it matters.
