Contest attendees,

While the list of suggested improvements for running our various contests grows 
on a daily basis, I can't help but notice that the list of people willing to 
coordinate and assist in the orgainzation, execution and presentation of our 
contests continues to dwindle at an alarming rate.

Without contest coordinators, contests don't happen.  Please, if you'd like to 
help improve our contests or other public events, consider volunteering.  It 
takes an investment in time and planning to make these things happen.  Every 
contest coordinator, including myself, shares the feeling that "I wish I could 
have done more".  Better press coverage, more prizes, better attendance, more 
interesting challenges, contingency plans, more venues - the list goes on 
seemingly forever.  The amount of available time that can be devoted to these 
tasks, on the other hand, is of necessity limited.

As an officer of the club and member of the board of directors, I recognize and 
value the contributions of valuable time, creativity and energy made by our 
contest coordinators.  My personal thanks go out to Steve Rainwater for 
organizing and bringing to life our most recent contest at the ISDC, as well as 
spearheading our public presence at that venue.
