Time to schedule another Honor Sprint - this is the time of year people
seemed to want to run a practice sprint.  May is full of gardening,
Dayton, CQ-M, and Memorial Day, so how about the second weekend of June?
Other suggestions?

Well, this is the June VHF QSO party weekend, which is the biggest VHF 
contest of the year.

Which goes to show you can't please everybody all the time.

But I do have one suggestion for scheduling short contests such as this.  
Very few "real" contests get scheduled on weekends that split months, e.g. 
when the Saturday is the last day of the month.  IMHO these Saturdays (the 
next is July 31, 1999, or August 1 UTC)  would make good dates for  short 
contests such as honor sprints, internet sprints, etc.
