Hi Folks,

You're invited to join the Straight Key Century Club in honoring veterans this weekend during the club's Weekend Sprintathon. It runs from 00:00-23:59 UTC Nov. 11. The bonus-point scheme for the event gives a premium to veterans who participate. Since Veterans Day in the US has counterpart celebrations in many countries around the world, the vet-friendly bonus scheme is available to all vets form any country.

As contests go, the Sprintathons are fairly mellow. The only equipment requirement: In keeping with the club's purpose of perpetuating artisanal Morse code, we ask that all participants use a straight key, sideswiper, or bug. You can give keyers and keyboards a rest for this one.  ;-)

You can enter as QRO, QRP, QRPp, and even SWL.

For complete information, visit the event's web page at http://www.skccgroup.com/operating_activities/weekend_sprintathon . You'll find a description of the event and its bonus-point scheme, as well as information about exchanges and scoring. You can find a list of the club calling frequencies here:

The awards? Bragging rights, mostly. The results appear immediately after a participant enters the required QSO information and bonus total on the event's submissions page. No logs required at our end; we operate on the honor system.

If after reading the information on the event page you still have questions, feel free to contact me at wes-manager@skccgroup.com. Even if you can't operate for the entire event, we welcome your participation. Join us for some good old fashioned, e-flat, A No. 1 brass-pounding!

With best regards,

Pete Spotts
