> Yipes! To me, this is not a particularly smart move on the part of the AIS. It's not *real* likely that a TB that didn't win the Wister (the highest TB award) is going to win the Dykes! And all these other TB's other than the Wister winner just split the votes even farther. I realize that this is an attempt to split the TB vote so something else can win, but what if it splits the votes for other classes, too? Is it just me or does the new system seem a bit ridiculous?
