Thank you, George for the contructive criticism of Field chess.  I did like
the the concept of the 8 archer-pawns to a side and shortening the board to
8x10 grid. It seemed to give the game of chess just a slight change of
pace, which is what some people are looking for in this new era. 
Unfortunately, my late co-inventor and I were in disagreement over that
matter.  So, we settle on what you just critiqued. Perhaps, I'll submit a
varinat of field chess in that fashion and see how our peers might respond
to it.
Sincerely Pete Leyva
