This is the score for the regular NS Ladder, i.e. with dupes allowed.

First, this was the night to honor our SK colleague Joe Boggs, W5CT.  We just
learned of Joe's death this afternoon via N3BB, and so had to scramble to get
the word out. Joe was just the kind of person who benefits from the ladder - an
 enthusiastic new ham learning, with gusto, the whys and wherefore of radio
contesting. I will miss the frequent QSO's and email exchanges from Joe.  I
encourage everyone to read Joe's heartwarming story at http://w5ct.com/
including his tower adventures and misadventures.  

Thanks also to those who participated in tonight's double dose of Thursday
night sprinting.  Now we have to figure out what the results mean. I'll try to
re-activate nsladder.blogspot.com for conclusions.

Still missed the elusive 1000 point mark tonight, by exactly one Q.  This after
spending today building and installing a 3-el fullsize 20m beam.  Oh well. And
how could I miss w9re on 20 meters. Skip was notably longer on 20 tonight, and
missed both WA and CA.  But that may have been the effect of using beam vs.
wire. Next week I should have both in use on 20m.

Good to see KO7X, Alan, VE3NE, Lali and to have Dave, N4DW in the ladder fray
for the 2nd time in a row.
