One problem with adding this as a contest is that
the contest rules change each year so the special
categories are diffrent each time this event is run.

You might try using KIDS DAY exchange type.
This will let you enter anything in the exchagne field.
It will not count your mults or keep track of the
catagories but it would let you log in realtime.
After the contest you could sort the log several diffrent
ways to count the SPCs and the catagories.
Or you might try to talk Tree into adding an exchange type of:
RST POSSIBLE DOMESTIC EXCHAGNE AND RANDOM CHARACTERS
This would then keep track fo your QTH mults but it would
not igve you points for the catagories - but again you could do a
sort on the log after the contest and score it. Since you
will not be making 2000 qsos this should not be a big task.
