Greetings Diddlers:

There’s nothing like an upcoming contest to bring out everyone.  Quite the 
group last week: 16 reported to 3830 and some others who were just tuning up 
for the weekend.  I hope everyone put their finely honed Sprint skills to good 
use this past weekend.  And if you did enjoy yourself, why not invite someone 
to give the Sprint a try?  The last couple hours could have used some 
additional stations.  But still a good time.

Don’t forget that DST is now in effect (except for you few lucky folks living 
in the rational states that ignore this silliness), so if you don’t hear anyone 
at the start wait one hour and we’ll all continue on as if nothing changed.

The new calls from last week were KK6NON, N2WK, AI6JB, and AA6OC.  Welcome guys 
and hope you’ll drop by in the future.

This weekend has the BARTG HF RTTY test, so don’t let those diddles cool down. 
Join us Thursday and keep everything ready for the weekend.
