Have it your way Hans.  I respectfully disagree but I won't argue the point.

Suffice to say, I don't feel comfortable at all promoting this event in any

IMHO, it will be perceived as a contest, and the promoters will get a lot of
grief over that perception, whether or not that is entirely true.

I simply don't want to see justified blow-back on the contest community.
Oh, we'll get blamed anyway by The Usual Suspects... but they don't need any

Ron, for a contest, this is a strange 
(looking/walking/swimming/eating/quacking/flying) duck.

It has no points.

It has no mults.

It has no required exchange.

It has no log deadline.

It has no place to send the log.

It has no categories.

It has no support at WriteLog or N1MM.

It seems to have no feathers at all.

I don't think it is a duck.

73, de Hans, K0HB
