[concours] Originality and concours

I agree with Steve Kennedy’s sentiments. But I am not suggesting that I
have the solution to the restore or lose points syndrome! I would suggest
however that judges be given discretion to allow original parts that are in
good order with some wear to receive no deductions for them. But you would
need say 3 experienced judges for that area and those models, to get a fair
cross section of opinion. Regards, John Elmgreen
