I found the following after following a Twitter Link to the DX World website (http://www.dx-world.net/kl7rst-vy1rst-ve8rst-and-vy0rst/ ) Its a cut and paste from the .docx that they linked to (minus the graphics)
If you needed KL, VY0, VY1 or VE8 for any awards or bragging rights this is an article you should follow up
For those of you not up to date on Northern Geography… The map shows the Canadian Callsign Districts… KL7( Alaska) would be that large grey area to the left of VY1.
The “popgun” will be out there trying its hardest for this one
Thanks to DX-World for making the information available to the Amateur Radio Community and thanks to the North Country DX Association for running the event.

Updated…2016 Worked All NCDXA “RST” Stations: A Special Event Covering All of Northern North America!
Members of the North Country DX Association (NCDXA) will be active in February and March 2016 from several different locations in Alaska, Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut using KL7RST, VY1RST, VE8RST and VY0RST to further promote Amateur Radio up north. This is a first for the north- a joint-venture KL7, VY1, VE8 and VY0 special event! All modes 6-160 meters and WARC bands are permissible. SWLs are welcome to participate. The object is to work or log (SWL) as many NCDXA “RST” stations as you can from their different locations. Work/log each “RST” station only once per their QTH/band and mode. No cross band, cross mode or remote operating allowed. For wildcards, Portable “RST” Stations will also participate and are worth 3 points each/mode and band but must be the “RST” stations mentioned above! The portable stations must be outside their own prefix to count (ie-KL7RST/KL7 does not count but KL7RST/VY1, VY1RST/KL7, VE8RST/VY0 etc. count- note portable Canadian calls are in accordance with IC Rules and Regs.). Watch the DX spots as we plan to have stations on from Whitehorse, Yellowknife, Anchorage, Fairbanks, a Canadian research station near the North Pole, a diamond mine in NWTand many other cities (maybe an Alaskan glacier or two!). QSL manager is K7ICE. KL7YK is LotW administrator for Alaska, VY0CF for Nunavut and VY1MB for Yukon. Please send your logs in adi format to them and myself. Optional full color certificates are also available (email JohnKL7JR@gmail.com for details) for working/hearing any of the “RST” stations. (QSLs printed by KB3IFH)
SPECIAL EVENT DATE: February 15 (0001Z) through March 27 (2359Z), 2016
EXCHANGE: NCDXA “RST” stations send signal report and QTH (ie- 5×7 Anchorage, 5×9 Whitehorse etc.). Receiving stations send signal report and state, province or country.
CERTIFICATE LEVELS: Beautiful full color certificates are available for working/logging (1) One or two NCDXA “RST” station (s), (2) any KL7RST, VY1RST, VY0RST or VE8RST, but must work one of each (3) for those more competitive (keep in mind the scoring is for certificate levels and this is not a contest), a highest score category. Certificates are different scenery shots from the north for each level.
Scoring example: K7QRM works KL7RST in Anchorage on 10m SSB, 10m CW, 15m SSB and 40m CW for his Anchorage total of 4 points. K7QRM works KL7RST at Matanuska Glacier on 10m SSB and 12m SSB for his Matanuska Glacier total of 2 points. K7QRM also works VY1RST in Whitehorse on 10 SSB, 15m digital, 40m CW and 30m CW for 4 points. K7QRM also works VE8RST in Yellowknife on 10m SSB and 20m SSB for a total of 2 points. K7QRM also works VE8RST in Hay River on 10m SSB for 1 point total. K7QRM’s grand total points are the city QSO sum of 13 points (plus any wildcard points). Handwritten or pc generated certificate applications are acceptable. First, 2nd, 3rd etc. places will be awarded. All certificates will be emailed in pdf format. Certificate deadline is May 15, 2016. As a bonus, pending snow depth and weather, we may also have KL7RST and VY1RST on together from the border of Alaska and the Yukon on the Alaska Highway. That has got to be another first for the north! A special QSL and certificate will be available for the border op. Thanks in advance for your DX spots! 73 de “Yukon John”, KL7JR

Well it does look interesting and its most likely your only chance to get all the Northern Areas at the same time. Personally I need Alaska in Digital, and all 3 Canadian Northern Territories in CW and Digital, so you know I’m going to be spending lots of time in the shack if the band conditions cooperate for Popgun with 5w and a wire
