Swapping the sprint weekends is one approach.  However, to put the 
shoe on the other foot, how about exchanging the XE and WPX weekends? 
This is something the RTTY people can do on their own without any 
need for cooperation from NCJ ... other than an agreement to keep 
CW Sprint on the Sunday of the second FULL weekend to avoid conflict 
in those few years that February 1 is a Saturday or Sunday.

The only problem with that is the Sprint weekends were changed in 1995 
to avoid a conflict between two CW contests (the FOC Marathon and the 
Sprint CW) on the first weekend of February.  At least the FOC Marathon 
stays down around 7025 +/- 5 KHz.
