Thanks for the info.  I'll forward this to our group.  I believe at
least one person in our group may have already participated in that
contest.  It sounds like a good one.  I'll be on vacation so I'll miss
the next meeting, so Clay Timmons will be there to lead the meeting.
You can find out more about what our group is doing by looking through
the DPRG newsletters online at:  http://www.dprg.org/newsltrs.html .
