What we mean with our proposal is that - the contest managers - work
together. The situation now, as you know yourself is that just ONE contest
manager pulls the whole load by himself. Resulting in vastly different
quality of the outcome.

It is NOT said that it has to be the Contest manager that sits in the SAC
contest committee; he could as well delegate that task to anyone else.

We have deeply analyzed the first weekend of October, and it seems to be
free from any CW contest.

I also think it is TOO early for you to reject this proposal before you know
what your SRAL members think of this, it will be a nice opportunity to
discuss this issue in a deeper aspect at the CCF Cruise. 

It would also be good if we could rise a decent level discussion on these
reflectors on this burning issue before the CCF-C, this "rejection" attitude
only makes it harder to try any kind of change, and if we do not act now,
SAC SSB is doomed for good, RTTY is growing very rapidly from each year, and
SAC SSB QSOs are declining almost at the same rate, there is an obvious
connection here!

Instead of only rejecting, please find us a better date yourself! CQ RTTY
will not go away - that's for sure.
