Wk 12 of NS Ladder this week . . .  a few reminders . . . 

 -- Mike W9RE will be running the popular SNS (slow NS practice) half an hour before regular NS on 20 and 40 . .  0300-015Z. 

 -- for details of NS Ladder competition, see www.ncccsprint.com.  0230-0300Z Friday (Thursday night US) 20, 40, 80 and 160.  Please continue to spread out in frequency, as this technique maximizes our NS fun.  

--  We have added a new 'division' with it's own wine award for all newcomers to NS.  Scores will be compiled only for the last several weeks (6 events remaining), so now's a good time to get in the fray.  We'll be showing these results on shortly, once I return from travel.

 -- Remember July 4th week is a bye week for NS Ladder.  (July 4th is Wednesday)

Again, we invite everyone to partcipate in this snappy, fun and family-friendly half hour of sprint-style contesting.  You'll love it.  Some have said it's as much fun as a bowling league   . . hmmmm.

Wk 11.  

Ed, W0YK has posted current results at www.ncccprint.com.   Still too close to call the competition in the W. of Ms. River and E. of Ms. River divisions, but as usual, N6RO in leaps and bounds ahead of the result of us in the NCCC division.

On Friday, I had the great pleasure to visit Mike, W9RE and his charming XYL prior to my meeting here in Indianapolis.   Suffice to say Mike doesn't have to give very specific directions to his house, given the relative flatness of Indiana.  Mike and I had a great visit and discovered we are both Purdue (Boilermaker) grads from about the same (rather distant) era.

So. . . hope to see many of you participating in NS this week.

73 Bill n6zfo/9 for the moment.
