Activity was not down on SSB but on CW as well. Plus the activity has
always been better on CW anyway. I suspect alot of those guys Paul
recruited were "newbees" and after doing a Sprint for the first time
they decided they really didn't like it.
I have been doing the Sprint for over 20 years and I can tell you that
people fit into 2 categories - They love it (all the regular guys we
work in every Sprint) OR they hate it with a passion.
Call me crazy but I LOVE the Sprints... they are by far my favorite
contests. I wish there were more than 2 per year.
