I spent the weekend at Ken (K6TA) and Kay's (K6KO) fine QTH in Pine Grove,
Amador County.  The good news is the station plays very well, and Ken was
willing to let me trash his normal setup to install my own adaptations.  Also,
they are wonderful hosts.  Kay cooked up a coq au vin dinner Friday night and
kept me supplied with food and water during the contest, not to mention a
Farmers' Market food basket to take back home to the XYL!  
  When we last convened in 2009, my claimed score was 333k points.  This year,
in spite of all the fun times on 10 meters, it was down to 311k points.  Now,
not missing SD and VE5 (how embarassing!) would have added back 11k points,
still leaving me another 11k or so below 2009.  That was disappointing.  I
agree with comments made by N6TV and some others that there seemed generally to
be less CW activity this year, and also many fewer DX stations.  For example, in
2009 I worked 124 DX contacts, but only 76 this year (and 8 of those wre 6Y6U).
  Anyway, as always a fun weekend.  Thanks to everyone for their participation,
to NCCC for all the hard work in sponsoring the contest, and most of all to Ken
and Kay for their outstanding hospitality.
