Glenn Corlew is the AIS Chairman of Judges and I am sure he would
welcome your criticism. His address is 2229 Ptarmigan Dr #4, Walnut
Creek, CA 94595. Tel: 510-932-1998. BTW, I think there is a standing
committee to revise the Judge's Handbook so this would be an opportune
time to inform these people who could possibly "improve the process".
