I never said that anyone had to compete, I just forgot to mention that 
part.  An assumption on my part, sorry.  I think that it is readily known 
that A&S displays are always welcome.  The point that I was trying to 
make was that if there are to be competitions, some of them should be 
divided according to the level of the entrants.  That's all.  Nothing more, 
nothing less.  I realize that this setup won't work for all occasions, 
but it does allow more people to enter their A & S stuff if thy so choose.
