GE Mats,

many issues, many answers - all correct, i believe or doubt,
doesnt really matter.

I think Nordic RA's are missing most common thing - team work
and willingness to do it. It is seen also on national activity level.
We want to get it all NOW! - without personal time investment.

Very important thing - where everything starts is trust -  to your mates.

I think we need group of people, who are able to wake up sleeping contest enthusiasm.
This group major task is to return activity of each country contest manager
intress back to SAC - without this, we can cry and shout thru on these reflectors.

At least one out of the four is willing to appreciate majority wish and vision :)

Personally i would like to keep alive that tradional SAC, where i have worked my
first international contest qsos - without changing it too much, or too drastically, 
but on the name of the development and majority high hopes, im willing push
my personal thoughts behind the Scandinavian's (majority) goals.

One man doenst win this challenge - we need good team and Leader!
