QI'lop? *Qetlop*?? *Ke'Plak*???

> > At the last *Qetlop* we celebrated in our Klingon club [...]

>QI'lop 'oH lop pong'e', qar'a'?

I don't think we've ever seen an "official" spelling for this holiday, 
mentioned in "Power Klingon", but since it's the holiday honoring the 
Klingon military {QI'}, spelling it {QI'lop} "military celebration" seems 

Note, this is still a guess of Michael Dorn's pronunciation.  I've also 
seen the holiday referred to as *Ke'Plak* (!) and celebrated (I'm told) on 
October 15 in Klingon fandom.

BTW:  Anyone know why they chose October 15th?
