Joe, Bob, et al;

I'm a contester, broadcaster and writer. Been busy trying to handle  
promotion on our FD effort here. Will be glad to assist you with this  
any way I can.

Thought starters: "Imagine working your DXCC (or a hundred countries)  
in a weekend"

"Radiosport requires concentration, accuracy and a winning spirit.  
Hone your operating skills"

"The contesting fraternity are some of the finest operators and most  
colorful characters in amateur radio"

"Set personal goals, improve your operating skills and earn some fine  
operating awards..which look great on the wall of your shack"

"Contests really p**s off the AM ragchewers on 75 meters!"

This is a great idea. Ought to make the finished product available to  
local clubs and the League.
