April, sports fans - APRIL.  There is a big old gap in the 'serious' CW
contest schedule between ARRL DX CW the 3rd weekend of Feb and WPX CW
at the end of May.  As I have to skip WPX CW because it is the weekend
after Dayton (usually - but not in 2004!) plus Memorial Day weekend
(every year...), that means a 5 month gap in CW contests between ARRL
DX CW and IARU HF for me.  There is only so much antenna work that can
keep me and K4JNY occupied without a contest 'fix' to feed that jones.

First two weekends in April, CW first weekend, SSB second weekend.

I know Tree doesn't want the additional headache of more log checking,
etc., but boy would it be nice to have them 3x a year.
