The weekend of May 2nd & 3rd is a great time to get a jump on WAS. 
With 2 State QSO Parties and 2 Regional QSO Parties, it is a packed weekend of opportunities 
with the 7th Call District (AZ, ID, MT, NV, OR, UT, WA & WY); 
the New England QP (CT, MA, ME, NH, RI & VT). 
Add in Indiana and Deleware’s parties and you have 16 states in one weekend 
including 6 of the 11 rarest states.

Note on Logging all 4 contests at once--
No matter where you live, you can participate in all four at once using N1MM Logger+  It is the only weekend where this happens. 
N1MM Logger+ lets you enter all the exchanges as received without switching logs. 
For anyone outside of these four areas, it has a special QSO party called IN7QPNE. This does the same for them. Enter all exchanges as received. 
Anyone can participate in all four QSO parties at once. 
When the party is over, simply generate a Cabrillo log and send it to all four of the contest sponsors. 
There is no need to weed out non-counting contacts, they do it all. 
This has improved the participation in all four contests. As a result, the four parties together now make up the largest QSO party weekend of the year..."
