Hank -

Good excuse for a contest on a weekday since Pi Day falls on a Monday in 
2016. And it would be a good warm-up for the Poisson d'Avril contest.

BTW, Wisconsin QSO Party was on Pi Day in 2010 and it would be again in 2016 
if it weren't a leap year.

p.s.  Pi to 10000 digits: http://www.joyofpi.com/pi.html

I'm wondering why there isn't a PI Day contest.  There seems to be a
reason to hold a contest for most any other reason.

Pi = 3.14 to two decimal place, so Pi Day is March 14.

Just thing, in two years March 14 will be on 3.1416 (rounded up from
3.141592xxxx).  This should be a GRR8 day for a contest, or perhaps a
Sprint of some kind because 3/14/16 is on a Wednesday.

Just thimk about it.  Plan ahead. :)
