Yes it's true! This December will see the tenth running of The Stew

Perry TopBand DX Extravaganza sponsored by The Boring Amateur Radio 
Club. Anyone who has nocturnally wandered out into the TopBand 
hinterlands this fall has appreciated the serious improvement of 
propagation over the recent past. Even though The Boring Amateur Radio 
Club has been credited with the improved  conditions we can't take the 
credit for that. What we do take credit for is maintaining a contesting 
experience structured for fairness and fun. All plaques are the result 
of the contesters themselves sponsoring whatever plaques that they feel 
are important to take note of.
    As a result of the recent article in the National Contest Journal, 
penned by the Chairman of the publicity committee of The Boring Amateur 
Radio Club, we have sponsored categories for the 2005 edition filling up 
the mailbox already:
