Initial Discussion



NOTE: I've added the various potential attributes, but they're copied/pasted from other ARs that use the same attributes. Please ignore that the description/link text currently is not updated for this AR.  :) (Based on User:symphonick/sandbox/Concertmaster)

"guest" I've struck from the position AR, and left only on the non-position AR.
