[Cwo] 2014 Logs/LCRs

After some good debate, here is a proposal for 2014: Public logs and continue with private LCRs (LCR upon request of the owner).
John mentioned that downloading public logs from the CWO website is easy; a list of callsigns for each session with links to download the associated logs. Anyone can download any log at any time from our website.
If there is no further discussion, I will amend the contest rules for 2014 to make all logs public.
Furthermore, in 2014, I will search out volunteers in the Top Ten boxes that will allow their LCRs to be made public on the CWO website (like CQ WPX). List with links like the logs and I will format those LCRs if needed. Then, perhaps, we can consider adding public LCRs in 2015.

The LCRs are already done. I did them before leaving for the south Pacific last month.
They are all in simple text format with the file name construction: call.RPT
Unfortunately, I used the same file names for each session. They are only identifiable by which session directory they are stored in. I could probably combine all three sessions into a single RPT file. I hadn't thought about that before.
Dean has them as well as well as the logs. They are not nearly as fancy as the CQ LCRs, but they do show the errors clearly. I've added Dean's session 1 RPT below as an example (he had only one ding). Hope you don't mind Dean...
You seem to be saying that an LCR is private and not public. I note that the CQ web page for LCRs only show a few public LCRs. I presume they are ones where permission was given to share publicly. With some reluctance, I sort of agree. Only because there are a few folks who would really object to having their dirty underwear viewable by all. This is different than having all the logs viewable publicly.
For a mass email of all the LCRs, maybe a script could be used to search the spreadsheet for an email address for each LCR and automatically mail it. Unfortunately, I don't know how to do that.
