The other day, someone mentioned boats and the idea of a contest in a contest

I actually brought this up with a contester (I don't really consider myself 
one, as I only play in the NYQP and Food Day (I mean field day) - and maybe 
hand out a few other QSOs (although now that I have a new station....)

With the advent of public logs, we can create any contest we'd like inside 
CQWW, and don't even have to ask (well, if we want to use their trademarks, 
yeah we do, but you know what I mean)

Picture you're group XYZ, and have a Good Idea (tm) for how to change CQWW - I 
call it it "the XYZWW" (or whatever).  So Long as the exchange doesn't change, 
and the entry categories don't change, we can figure out what would be, and 
group XYZ can actually give out their own awards etc

Eventually, if folks like the new scoring more, the new awards would mean 
'more' than the old awards (aka people would winning the new award more 
seriously than the old one)

Call it "Open source contesting"
