In case you need a bigger contest fix than the NCJ CW Sprint this weekend, 
don't forget the New Hampshire and Vermont QSO Parties.  Both go for 48 
hours - 0000Z Feb 7th until 2359Z on February 8th.  Rules for the VT QP 
are in Feb QST and CQ.  I've attached the NH Rules below since they didn't 
make it into QST this time.  Maine used to have a QSO Party this same 
weekend but this is an "off year".
