    Final Score = 449,934 points.

My first IARU contest (not counting working the WRTC folks last 
year.)  I had a blast.  Most everything went wrong at K4RO in the 
WPX, and most everything went right in this one.  Should have paid 
more attention to some of the easy zone mults on 10 & 160.  I had 
an attitude of pure fun for this one.  All I did was read the rules.
Didn't look at any scores from previous years, no goals, no band 
plan, just a desire to have fun and follow the rate wherever it took
me.  I had no idea what a good or bad score was and didn't worry 
about how the competition was doing.  Wound up having a great time, 
and operated the entire contest.  Conditions were OK, and the QRN
level was surprisingly low.  Surprised that most hostile frequency
takeover attempts I experienced were from the HQ stations.  Still, 
mostly courteous  and efficient operating heard all around.  Nice easy
quick exchange, DX & domestic rate fun; I'll be back again for IARU.

Thanks for the QSO's!   73,  -Kirk  K4RO
