Yep, covered that in my original post when I said:

rigs as well..."

I can't answer that for you Ken, particularly since neither you nor I
came up with the concept to start with. It was Bill's idea for
creating some enjoyable, laid back AM activity around the holidays. A
pretty good one in its original form, in my opinion. Keep in mind that
the rules have been rewritten a bit since Bill's original event.
Fortunately for us we don't have to figure out the how or why, simply
whether or not to take part.

Nothing that I'm aware of Ken. No different than calling a stick a
stick, a rock a rock, or a troll a troll, really. But again - if you
really want the specifics, you'll have to consult Bill's original
rules published in ER, his posts on AMfone (maybe here as well), or
maybe even drop him an email. That's what I did.
