Was reading TASC May 2006 article, "The Bowl Pattern Breakout" by Sharon Yamanaka, and got the idea to create an EXITS DISPLAY filter. The article talked about NTRI, so, of course, that caught my attention since I wrote the "finding the NEXT NTRI" filter. I will have to work on a bowl pattern filter. So many filters, so little time...LOL!

Also, there's been a debate over what is more important the entry or the exit. Most people say the exit is more important. I disagree but that's another discussion.

This filter display uses 2 of the exits the author discussed and my "middle exit".

Hopefully, some of you will add your favorites exits to this display.
