Reports are included by Vincent Alfonso, Virginia Berninger, Milton Dehn, Ron Dumont, Colin Elliott, Steven Feifer, Catherine Fiorello, Dawn Flanagan, Elaine Fletcher-Janzen, Sam Goldstein, Brad Hale, Randy Kamphaus, Nadeen Kaufman, Elizabeth Lichtenberger, Steve McCallum, George McCloskey, Jack Naglieri, Samuel Ortiz, Cecil Reynolds, Gale Roid, Barbara Wendling, and more.
