I am looking for copies of the org results for the years 1968 - 1971!!! Let me know if you can provide a copy. While building this archive I have found 13 incorrect records and 2 incorrect dates that prompted the TCR to update their record books. That alone made the madness of creating these archives worth it:-) In addition, dozens more mistakes not affecting the record books have also been found and corrected.
