One benefit of the current Memorial Day weekend for WPX CW for those of us 
still working is that it gives you Monday to recover.  One can do a full effort 
in WPX CW and still have a day left to recover or get those weekend chores

The current  date for WPX CW (last full weekend of May) is fine with me. 
emorial Day is a minor holiday and it only applies to the U.S. anyway. And, the 
nd-of-May date helps spread out the major contest weekends a little, allowing a 
reak after the winter contest madness and before the IARU contest. 
But, moving the contest to a better DX propagation date would be nice. How 
pril or mid-October? If I were the WPX sponsor I would not be intimidated by 
ny of the podunk operating activities on every weekend that hardly anybody 
perates in. The WPX is a worldwide activity that should take precedence over 
ontests of a parochial nature.
