A very interesting contest.  Almost met my goal of 200, but fell 10 
short after the 1 dupe I had. I didn't operate even close to 24 hours, 
more like 13 or so. 40 was the band, followed by 15 and 20 (with 1 on 
80).  Lots and lots of California, due to being here in WWA.  First time 
ever trying to run, and had mixed results. Got a
real nice run going in the morning on Sunday, with California, 7-land 
and 0-land.  That run got broken up when my parents decided I had to go 
to church (the disadvantages of being a 14 year old contester...)
One question: Where was Canada???  I only worked AB, and only heard AB 
and MB, and couldn't find anyone else.  

Murphy paid a visit as usual. The computer Andy, KC7DZZ
brought crashed and we went without it for a lot of hours.
Phone SS will be very interesting, will be operating from Andy's 
KC7DZZ's station, but since I just passed Extra and he's a General, 
we'll be using my call. Look forward to
working you all in Phone SS, goal is 600 this year.
