Bob - can you add this to the aprsworld events page? It's shown on the front 
of aprsworld and at:
http://aprsworld.net/events/

The form to add an event is here:
http://aprsworld.net/events/event_add.php

The same goes for everyone else - if you have an event or something cool to 
watch with APRS then add it.
