[CQ-Contest] CQP - my mistake!

We certainly hope that you did get on and participate in CQP.  We do enjoy 
working all DX in the contest every bit as much as we enjoy working the 
state next door.

As a California ham, I am sorry that you are only motivated to participate 
in a QSO Party if you are a multiplier.  I personally feel that you are 
missing out on some of the enjoyment of contesting by meeting the challenge 
of working as many as possible without being the most highly sought after 
fish in the pond.  As DX, you may be more accustomed to being chased than 
doing the chasing.  There is fun and great challenge in either, and you seem 
like you are missing out on half of it.  Having done both myself, I can say 
that the challenge is different between the two but both are a lot of fun to 

73, Dennis NE6I
