No, no.  Put them all in all contests!  I *like* the November
Sweepstakes exchange.  I just don't want to see time taken out because
"it's too hard".  I wouldn't want the WAE folks to take out QTCs,
either, just because I haven't got the hang of it.

I realize that there are many hams who can barely exchange callsigns,
but there needs to be more challenge than what's required by

If you REALLY want to take stuff out, get rid of RST ... which BARTG
already has.
