Yesterday, the Weekend Sprints were approved. Starting this Sunday March 11th, at 0000z thru 2359z the first Monthly Weekend Sprint will happen. The rules have been posted from this thread to the Yahoo files section and to my website at http://www.nt9k.com/skcc.htm
With such short notice, the first sprint might be ugly with low turnout. That's ok, and will make it easier on me getting the feel of administering the event. Some of the shortcomings are likely to be:
No Theme for the first sprint. (Use the same exchange as the regular sprint)
No web entry form for submissions. (I may have this done in time)
No awards/prizes. (Not sure what to do here)
There are still some discussions going on with the SKCC founders about changing SKN to this event. Expect rule changes. I already think we need to give a bonus for DX contacts. Maybe that could just be another theme?
Except for K1Y/4, this is the first time that I have ever tried to run an event and I hope that I don't mess it up. If you can help in any way, please do. Even with the short notice, there is no reason not to give this event a try. I hope everyone has fun with it.
