Dear fellow Contesters / DXers! Its time to summarize year 2000 and

great contesting / DXing company and atmosphere in the CCFs 7th annual
Contest / DX meeting, held on 19-21 January, 2001.
Please *BOOK NOW* the second latest weekend of January 2001, the weekend

Forget all thoughts of possible low mid-January temperatures in these
northern latitudes. Instead, come to enjoy the mid-winter *TROPIC* in
Finland! The January 2001 meeting will be held in a *tropical*
environment in Tampere Spa Hotel, about 150 km North of Helsinki.
Come and enjoy the great contest / DX related presentations by world top
class contesters / DXers, not to mention the excellent rag-chewing
company of all the fellows so familiar to you from all those big
pile-ups! In the previous meeting we had already 40+ foreign visitors
from CT, DL, ES, G, HA, JA, LA, OZ, UA, SM, W, YL and ZS, not to forget
the 100+ OH/OH0 contesters / DXers!
The meeting starts with an enjoyable gettogether on Friday evening.
Saturday will be our day of presentations (all in English), and when
Saturday evening arrives - its party time! Sunday is more or less
the day of getting back home, but we try to arrange e.g. some local
sight-seeing tours for those with less tight time-schedules.
All the activities will take place in the Tampere Spa Hotel.
