Happy New Year to all Four Staters, no matter which state
you call home!
Next Sunday, January 8th, from 7-9 pm CST, is the first

all up for grabs. This is our chance to sharpen our CW

RST, SPC, and
4SQRP member number (or power if not a member). Go to

morning following the sprint. You need to enter your score
I think the greatest number of people participating in a

conditions as they have been, the more people who get on

often. It's not too late for you to make a similar
addition to your
list of resolutions.
72 and hope to work you in Sunday's sprint,
4SQRP Contest Coordinator
