I can understand people wanting what they don't have to show up, but Ducie? My gawd, VP6DX was there in 2008 and they were a super operation.
If one was not able to work the 2008 Ducie expedition, or was not active in 2008, what difference does it make how great that expedition was? The fact of the matter is quite a few of us need Ducie.
I don't think it's realistic to expect many of us to vote for a place we've already confirmed even if the place we're voting for was labeled "DXpedition of the Century."
