I don't remember the reason they were stopped but I think, for the most  
part, the NAQPs have taken their place.  As I recall, CD parties happened 4  
times a year , though.  Most of them were open to ARRL appointees only  
although I think at the end they instituted "Open CD Parties".  Most of the  
participants were Official Relay Stations (ORS) and I suspect that much fewer  
guys are involved in handling NTS traffic these days.

I was  trying to remember why we quit having CD parties.  They were my  
favorite contest.

Any of you old guys remember?
