I like the idea of more Sprints.  It's tough trying to get good at something
you can only do 8 hours a year!  Let's avoid 10 meters in the summer time,

quick turnaround of the logs (great job Tree !!) How about having more than
two Sprints in a year ?? It would be neat to expermint with different
formats. How about a low band Sprint - 160/80/40 - Maybe sometime in the
Winter/Spring when those bands are good. You could also have a high band
Sprint - 20/15/10 . I would have it in the Summer when there is plenty of
Sporadic E that would make conditions interesting.. While you are at it
maybe add 6 meters and make it a 20/15/10/6 meter Sprint ???

would make it 15/10/6, however.....
