Thanks. I'd add it, but my summer camp season has already started and I'm really busy. I'll get to it in a couple weeks, although if you'd like you can type it up in wiki format, then either edit the source document or post it here and I'll copy/paste it into the article. Go to Special:Emailuser/BartHumphries and send me an email if you'd like. :) BartHumphries 23:07, May 15, 2015 (EDT)
