Dale.

That's understood. But please enlighten us as to why Landshark is defined as a Keeper Of the Flame?. I've read you mention them in the past and it's on the US KOF page of the Classic Rendezvous website yet I have a hard time regarding Landshark's as "classic". Vanilla, Bohemian ... yes, makes perfect sense. Landshark ??? There must be something I'm missing.

ciao,
