    Depending on which flight you draw it's far less than every kid getting that trophy. And I think it is a showcase under my definition of the word, which is to exhibit or display something, not be a...

    My original question was about using primary selection initially, not on a re-run. The consensus answer seems to be that I'm free to do so, at my own risk.

  9. Primary selection in field trials – is it kosher???

    I have a very limited background in field trials – a few Q’s with one JAM to show for it – so I really don’t know much about them, but they are a lot of fun and we’re trying to get better. So, I’m...
