Recognizing that the 4th comes in the middle of the week (Wednesday) and that some operators will be going to their work on the 2nd, 3rd and 5th, we will add a BONUS DAY on Saturday, 30 June 2012!! Stations will operate from 09:00 AM Eastern (1300Z) right through until the 5th. Keep in mind that there may be fewer operators available on the work days so, PLEASE BE PATIENT!
There will be at least two S.E. stations per colony state. Also included will be Super contest stations, multi-operator Club stations & OM & XYL teams.
The theme for 2012 is "Colonial Era US Navy Tall Ships". Old Ironsides adorns the 2012 certificate , printed on heavy card stock - very cool.http://www.13colonies.info/2011sweep1.jpg
You can work one state or, all 13 and, be eligible for the certificate. A "Clean Sweep" indicator will also be affixed, for those lucky enough to "Q" all 13.http://www.13colonies.info/
