As one of the "fathers" of the NAQP (a manifestation of K5LZO, K7BV, K8CC and
me to replace the ARRL CD Parties), I am incredibly pleased at the level of
activity we achieved last weekend. It has met its design goal to give a
training ground for all who want to improve their contesting skills. It is
also a great 10 hours of strategy and stamina.
It is also a premier vehicle to foster tradition. When N6RO and I both lived
on Long Island, Ken would consistently beat me in the CD Parties. When we
both lived in Texas, the tradition continued. Now that we are both NCCC
members, well you know....40+ years of me trying to improve my skills and one
day, perhaps, be victorious over one of the best of the best!

>>Tom, stop following me all over the country! And, thanks for the kind
words. You have already trounced me in a few recent NAQPs. When you get
all your hardware back in the air, surpassing my scores will be
routine. This IS the best contest for serious (or want-to-be serious)
contesters. Thanks for getting it started.
