I just wanted to add some emphasis to Enrique's note.  Definitely time 
for los norteamericanos to come to the rescue re MASTER J1759+25!
PNV J1714 might be a challenge up north, but we have traditional 
strength in South Africa, New Zealand, and Australia.  These appear to 
be quite unusual dwarf novae, and plenty bright.

We have two new fresh WZ-Sge candidates out there.

PNV J17144255-2943481 on JD 763 (Josh) shows clear early superhumps. 
This is a good target for the second half of the evening
for southerners, and some runs other than those from Josch=Chile would 
help. It's quite bright at 10.9 (JD 763)

  Also, MASTER OT J175924.12+252031.7 has been showing early superhumps 
for the last 5-6 days, but all runs we have
so far are from European longitudes and data from distant sites are 
needed for clearing up the alias frequencies. This one should
be now at around 14.3-14.4.
