I'm thinking about organizing a daily sprint.  Before I get started is anyone aware of a daily cw sprint?

Please define "sprint" (and don't say its a wireless phone company!).

Are you talking about a contest?

Are you talking about some sort of code practice transmissions?

 Cheesy No not the phone company! 

Yes, more like a contest but very informal.

There's a weekly Thursday night sprint, the "NS" or "NCCC Sprint". http://www.ncccsprint.com/

It's very addictive! There's a "slow sprint" preceding the fast one if you need some practice.

Many Wednesdays there are CWOPs events and NAQCC events. See http://www.cwops.org/cwt.html and http://www.naqcc.info/contests.html. These are not sprints in the "NS" or "NA Sprint" sense but still are bursts of activity.

Thanks Tim.  I think I will give the SNS a try tonight.  I can't hang with the speed demons just yet.  Getting there though.
