If it's not fun, why do it?
And the winner is....
The Poisson d'Avril Contest Committee is pleased to announce that K1DG has won the 2012 Poisson d'Avril Contest. DG regains the title after a bruising defeat last year at the hands of W1MD, K1QX and K1XX (aka "Team Radioware") who outbid him and everyone else (especially K1EP who had no idea the other guys were monitoring his bids) for first place with a substantial donation to WRTC2014.
The Committee recognizes that it is somewhat unusual to declare a contest winner before the contest has taken place, and even before the rules have been announced, but borrowing a theme from a terrific 60s tune, K1DG said: "It's my contest and I'll win if if I want to, win if I want to, win if I want to. Besides, I'm busy this weekend. I thought about operating, which is good enough."
K1DG will receive the traditional laurel and hearty handshake for winning this year's Pd'A.By the way, the use of this font is quite deliberate, though some people with waaaaay too much time on their hands don't seem to like it very much.
