The young contesters surely know about WRTC in Brazil !

I think the biggest problem for the Young Guys is to find the economical
recourses to go to Brazil, at least from Europe it is a VERY expensive trip,
and considering that most young contesters are still in school this makes it
impossible to even consider, therefore so few applications have been turned
in to the organizing committee. Maybe something could be done to meet this
