You are, of course, correct - I did not include the additional passes up 
and back to retrive the T/C at the tail.  My main point is that tail 
slate syncing with an edit controller such as the TLC with macro 
capability essentially relieve much of the angst we used to deal with.  
Incidentally, I agree with you that chase/lock methods such as the Aaton 
are often an adequate solution.

And John, believe me, we were dragged KICKING AND SCREAMING into the 
syncing process!
