All, (sorry if this is a duplicate email...first one did not appear to work)

Below is an invitation for the 2014 CW Open.  I've sent it to Nodir, EY8MM for translation into Russian and posting to Russian reflectors.  I plan to send it to the CWops Ambassadors so that they can inform the ops in their regions.

In addition, Ed KR3E has written a posting for QRZ and eham that he will publish as the event get closer.

There will be articles in the August and September Solid Copy newsletters.

All major contest calendars have been updated, including ARRL Contest Corral.

The rules have been updated and are ready to go.

I'll touch base again with the logging software folks too (done).

I've sent a note to Bruce WA7BNM; we'll use his webpage to CWO collect logs.

I think we're on track....please tell me if I'm missing something or if something needs amplification.  Thanks!
