Zombie confusion

I see several guys on the various QRP e-mail reflectors asking if anyone plans to participate in the Zombie Shuffle this Friday night.

Guys ..... it has been moved this year!

As per Paul NA5N:


No, I have not forgotten about the Zombie Shuffle. It has been distressing trying to figure out how to work it around all the contests at the end of October and first of November. After some email suggestions, and asking a few regular participants, and the fact that Halloween is on Monday night this year, we have decided that this year's Zombie Shuffle will be held on: SUNDAY NITE, OCTOBER 30.

Traditionally, the Zombie Shuffle started out as a "Friday Night Special," and held on the Friday night before Halloween, but never Halloween. The past few years, we've been slammed by the CQ World Wide DX Contest, which begins Friday evening. At least for this year, we will try Sunday night to avoid CQWW and not interfere with family plans for Halloween Monday night.

Hopefully, most of you will find this convenient and fun with more open bands and far less QRM. I apologize to those of you who will find Sunday evening inconvenient.

I hope to get the rules published and posted this weekend.

So there you have it from The Source - the Zombie Shuffle is this coming Sunday night - not Friday!
