Here are the preliminary results from this weekends Messier marathon. Please
do not publish this list as it is intended to ensure accuracy. 

Please look it over and let me know of any corrections needed, particularly
spelling of names (I'm a horrendous speller!).
I've included the SAC & AZ Observing lists. And the emails for those out of
state observers that provided an address. Please forward to anyone on the
list who you feel may not receive this listing. I plan on finalizing the
results next week after debriefing AJ, so please get you corrections in
before next Monday. Hopefully, We'll get the Awards ordered and presented by
the may meetings.

Congratulations to all who participated, you made it a success!
