    Anyone know if the upgrades for 2007 have been announced or when they might be?

    The Grading committee will be meeting on December 2nd in Baltimore, MD. If you attend the meeting, they will be announced there. I believe the meeting is open to the public.

      BTW, who's on the grading committee and how is that decided? Just curious. If it's confidential or otherwise none of my business, no problem. Just curious. It's one of those thoughts that crosses my mind occasionally these days...

            I was talking with a member of the Grading Sub-committee this morning. The meeting is *NOT* open to the public, so please don't plan to attend.

            The Grading Sub-committee will make their recommendations on Saturday. The Executive committee needs to approve them on Sunday before they become official.
