2018 Participation Award
This award is renewed annualy. See the 'Expired' awards link in the left column for results from previous years. To encourage participation in club activities, points are awarded each time someone enters and submits a log for a challenge or a regular monthly sprint (In months where there is also a mW/160M sprint, a member earns a point for one or the other, but not both). At the end of the year, the MEMBER in each division with the highest point total is awarded a beautiful color certificate. In case of ties, duplicate certificates will be awarded. Non-members can earn points, but must become a member before the end of the year to be eligible for the award.
There are 12 divisions, one each for the 10 USA call areas, one for Canada, and one for the rest of the world. KH6 is part of the 6th call area and KL7 part of the 7th for purposes of this award.
The member with the highest overall score from the twelve divisions will receive a FREE one-year membership in FISTS -or- if the winner is already a FISTS member, a FREE one-year renewal of their membership. FISTS is donating this to the NAQCC. Thanks to all the FISTS officers and members for their kindness and generosity. It is wonderful our two clubs can work so well together in the common cause of preserving CW on the ham bands. So make plans to be active in and report your results from as many of our monthly sprints and challenges as you can. Say thanks to FISTS by participating in their events also. No points for that, but it will be a nice gesture on our part to help them get more participation in their events.
In case more than one member is tied for the most points overall, we will pick a winner as follows:
All previous winning members are eliminated since the prize can now only be won once by a member. If there are still more than one member left, a random computer drawing will be made among the remaining members.
