The rules for the NA Sprints show the correct dates, regardless of what is
published by third parties.

The WA7BNM Calendar goes through February 2009,

Calendar, however, shows the entire year, as well as future years,

> I see SSB Sprint and the CQ RTTY are still in conflict.

Yes, the NA SSB Sprint is in the middle of the CQ WPX RTTY contest period,
but shouldn't be a conflict on the bands.  The CW and SSB weekends were
swapped this year to minimize conflict, especially on 40 meters where
activity in CW Sprint and WPX RTTY is centered in the same sub-band.
