It's really easy to add a Calendar event to the eHam website - it's all 
web based and you get instant gratification - just click the "Calendar" 
link in the left menu area, then click "Add event" near the top.  Or:  

After you submit you can see it immediately in the calendar.  

Keeping eHam's homepage calendar up-to-date requires no manual 
intervention unlike the listing on contesting.com.  The eHam calendar 
also holds more than contests <gasp> but you can browse/filter the 
entire calendar on the calendar page.

It would be great if some of the "less intense" contests (e.g., QSO 
parties) would have an invitational article written about them which 
were then submitted to eHam.
