If folks want a different kind of contest, try QRP To the Field
(QRPTTF), 2007 style.
It's held Saturday April 28, 2007 (US Time), or 1500Z Apr. 28 to 0300Z
Apr. 29, on 40-20-15-10 meters, in the vicinity of the QRP calling
frequencies. please be courteous to others. Since it's a QRP contest,
it's CW only, 5W or less (for certificates, etc.
As usual, this event is geared toward having fun while operating in the
field, away from commercial power.
This year's theme is: The Taco Bell Run to the Border!
The idea here is to operate from as many state/province borders as
possible, or from a Taco Bell restaurant location. Taco Bell stations
will be worth extra points. Field stations get a multiplier of 3, border
stations (at the border of two or more states) get a multiplier of 4,
and stations set up within sight of a Taco Bell Restaurant get a
multiplier of 5. Home stations may participate, with a multiplier of 1.
Get as close to a border as you can, you do not need to risk life and
limb if a border runs through a lake or across a mountain top.

72 de n8xx Hg (WQ8RP/TB during QRPTTF 2007)
