    If you have to worry about the cost of HF e-mail, you can't afford the boat.

    I'd be well into that if I didn't have to hit the sack early tonight. Though not sure I'm up to the SKCC Sprint standard yet - more of a "crawl" with me.

    "Crawl" is perfectly acceptable. Usual, even.

    The only reason it's called a Sprint is that it lasts a mere two hours. Not even long enough to upset Burt.

    Most aren't sending very fast. So dust off the bug or straight key and have fun.

    The only thing disallowed is electronic keying--no keyers, no keyboards.

    I might be able to give it a try on that weekend - I'm on a motorcycle trip 11th-13th but will be back by late afternoon on the 13th. As I'm member 9008 of the SKCC it might be nice to have a short QSO with another member for once!
