I say we lock them all in the ballroom at Visalia with police whistles and
the first one out with 1000 Q's wins!
It would be the only way to tell for certain who was running GAS...

Lemme try this again.
Hey guys it's sure been nice working you in all the tests. There really
is a feeling of comradery that I feel when I here those same old calls
every year in one test or another. What I would like to add is that if
the Novice Round-up could have been redesigned around the SPRINT format
it wouldn't have died several weeks back. While it's nice to work all of
you year after year, what we really need is some way to get neophytes
to join in. What better way to do this than the NR Sprint. Let's hold it
on New Year's Eve each year so as to allow an alternative for the Straight
Key Night crowd who didn't stay sober. Send CW logs to me, SSB logs to
As far as the SPRINT goes, I feel quite comfortable that I am the best
operator. I had 213 Q's and 38 mults. If I had been using my other radio
then I would have easily nailed the entire field to the wall. 213X2=426;
38X2=76 for a total score of 32,376! But I had one radio tied behind my
back just to make it fair. Looking down the road, I sure hope contesting
can survive. If the Republicans can get all their "Contest with America"
ideas through then we should have some pretty smooth sailing ahead. I
really don't think they'll be able to bring us culturally diverse
radiosportsters together on all fronts, but hopefully we can all agree
that it would sure be nice to take part in the payouts.Wouldn't it be
nice to receive disaster payments when a particular operation is hard
hit by Murphy or deficiency payments during sunspot lulls.
I hope to see you all for a group hug at Dayton where we can set aside
our differences for a brief while and realize that we're all just one
fine group of crazy cowhands.
Tnx, Ross Ewage
