It will be fun to see who completes ALL of the counties on eQSL first, now small feat I'm sure!
Something else that would be worthwhile is having the MARAC contests configured on N1MM, if they haven't been already.
The May Madness weekend with MARAC, 7QP, NEQP, InQP, ARI and ...
would be a lot easier from one logging platform ;o)
