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:


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.
