2 suggestions:
New hams need to send CQ only as fast as they can copy CW
New hams need not be timid about asking for repeat reports or asking the other operator to slow down

The need for the novice band continues to be evident with each RR contest
AD0DA   Rookie   CO
It was a fun 6 hours of CW!
AD0FL   Rookie   MO
First Rookie CW Rookie Roundup. It was a bit challenging with the band conditions, but fun nonetheless.
AD8J   Nonrookie   NC
Got on for an hour to help the cause.
AF5OD   Rookie   AR
The contest was a lot of fun. I want to say special thanks to Joel W5ZN for letting us use his station. This is our first CW contest. Joel pushed us to try for this contest and we have been studying hard for a few months now and it was still very difficult. We were not allowed to use any computer aid for copying it was all by ear. We are not ready for the big leagues yet but we will defiantly keep practicing and improving.
AK2S   Nonrookie   NJ
I wanted to join the Rookies so I called CQ a few times which I had never done before in a contest. I also decided to use my 1947 Vibroplex "bug" which is a year older than I am (I am 67). Does this qualify me to be a Rookie; I think not. Thanks to all who tolerated my sending.
K0BAK   Rookie   PA
Last Rookie Roundup I qualify for, only did one other. Had fun, bands weren't too good. Thanks for many ops that worked hard with me to make contacts under severe fading. Wish I started doing these roundups sooner.
K1CIC   Rookie   ME
Sorry, my first entry neglected to count my one rookie contact!
K1DBM   Rookie   OH
First CW RR...I had lots of fun learning.
K1ECU   Rookie   CT
I would like to apologize to any and all hams with whom I may have attempted to work but failed to complete a QSO because of my poor CW skills. I intent to practice and make a better showing next year. 73 de K1ECU
K4BAI   Nonrookie   GA
Also worked many other non-rookies and these are not counted. Glad to meet some new CW operators and sorry there were not more. All QSOs were on 20 and 40M. No activity heard on 10 and 15M. Called CQ R on 80 and got only one non-rookie. Happy Holidays to all. 73, John, K4BAI.
K5IX   Nonrookie   TX
It never gets old! Each year, I have more fun in RR than the last. Some really nice fists out there--I was especially proud to work an 11-year-old Extra Class YL! Hope to hear lots of '13s next year as non-rookies--your continued participation will make it fun for us all.

Thanks Rookies! The future of our hobby is in YOUR hands. Looking forward to working you again.

K5IX Dave 76 TX
K8TE   Nonrookie   NM
My first time and happy to give out some contacts in the last 23 minutes. I hope some of you rookies will join the contest community for another great to have fun with ham radio. 73 from NM, Bill, K8TE
KC1APK   Rookie   VT
A great contest! Thank you to all the people I worked! 73 de KC1APK Dave in VT
KC1AXJ   Rookie   CT
My last year as a Rookie.
KD2HEK   Rookie   NY
My first CW contest would have probably been a bit more fun without the Kp 6 condx. Well, at least I'll still be a rookie next year.
KD8VMR   Rookie   WV
Last RR for me, had fun. Message to all rookies, Join in the fun.
KF5WYS   Rookie   NM
I upgraded to General this summer and enjoy the digital modes. I am 13 years old and new to CW so this contest was difficult operating for me.
KI4WFJ   Nonrookie   SC
KX9X   Nonrookie   CT
Nice job by all the Rookies! Great to hear new licensees sending good CW; I heard several using a straight key, too. Well done, all!
N0AX   Nonrookie   MO
Great working some new calls from 2010-11-12-13-14-15! The first few times trying to contest with CW are tough but soon the code speed goes up and so does the enjoyment. Try the North American QSO Party CW event on Jan 9th - exchange is name and state/province/country. It will seem pretty fast-paced at first but hang in there and you will start making QSOs by the bunch. Call CQ at *your* comfortable speed to slow down us speed-demon old-timers :-)
W2RAN   Nonrookie   NH
Lot's of good fists out there. Had fun using my old Novice station and straight key for all contacts. Love hearing CW activity on the bands.
W4KFF   Rookie   NC
Had a blast! Lots more concentration this year. Looking forward to my final R/R contest next year. Many thanks for this endeavor.
W6NF   Nonrookie   MN
Poor conditions at the time I was able to get on but did manage to work a few Rookies. Thanks for the Qs!
W7PV   Nonrookie   WA
Would be better to hold this contest on a Saturday so as not to conflict with church and football.
WB4IT   Rookie   AL
Final year as a rookie. 73 to all.
XE1AY   Nonrookie   XE1
My first time in this contest. I had to slow my transmition speed. Not very good condition on 20m band
