BTW - with such a small hunt team, if you really want to attempt to get everyone together for a meeting, you may want to change it to a weekend, instead of during the week. Especially since we all live so far from each other.
Not sure who got their panties in a bunch and don't want to know, but agree that everyone is entitled to play the game however they wish. Although it's nice to find out if someone beat you to a FTF via a field post, it's not the end of the world either. Play on, my friends !!
