     The Stew Perry is an old fashioned contest emphasizing the Operator's
abilities to make QSOs out of the thin, cold air. It is a CW contest where
almost all Ops will slow down if you ask them (QRS) to do so.
     Some Ops were distraught last year when they produced very nice
scores from their region but no plaques were available. We suggest that
in any region where this might happen that the Ops support a regional
plaque or challenge their contemporaries to take up a collection for a
plaque to do battle over. Its always better to have something to point to.
     We have suggested that you actively complete all December chores
rapidly and with a smile, so that the evening of Dec. 30 you can join the
     There will a few more reminders, such as this one detailing the
growing plaque list and to exhort the competitors to always mention in
their log submissions exactly what plaques that they are competing for.
Thank you.
73 and I remain,
