Hi Fred,

I responded to a post by David Almy before getting to your note. If you have
time see my story of a similar incident at one of the Olympic Games.

I did the "unthinkable " many years ago and this is a first time confession! :)
I tried to notch a film gate and with my great skills I put the file through the
curtain! Some how I let slip how I was holding the curtain open and you know the
rest! :)

Oh well that's my only story of notching film gates. :)
