    > If you have an SIII then C2 meters = SIII distance * 1.43960.

    Competitor's are urged to regularly report their progress so that
    others who may wish to "catch" a leader have a fair chance to do so.

    People may post questions or comments to the group regarding this

    Thanks to all participants.
