Hey -
 
I have a question about counting the number of pieces in a given line.  If I am at position 44 on the board, and I want to move North, do I count the number of pieces that are both above AND below me (in the line between 14 and 84), or just the pieces in the line between 44 and 14?
 
Also, is there a phone number I can call if I have any questions regarding the contest?
 

Thanks for your prompt reply,
John Kadlik
