NAQCC 2017 Anniversary Sprint Prize Drawing

Our anniversary sprint prize drawing will be held on Sunday evening, October 22, at 8:00 EDT (2400Z UTC).

Drawing Details:

As we have done in the past, our thirteenth anniversary sprint prize drawing will be held in two tiers. In the first tier we will give away our top three prizes, and in the second tier, prizes 4 through 10 will be awarded.

There is a throughout-the-year participation requirement for a member to be eligible for a first-tier prize. Here are the specific requirements:
1. Be a member of the NAQCC at the time of the October sprint.
2. Participate in the sprint by making at least one QSO and send in the log by the submission deadline.
3. Earn at least 9 participation points from January through September. Points are earned by participating in our regular monthly sprints and challenges and are recorded in the table seen here. (Up to two participation points can be made up by qualifying and applying for one or two of our regular awards. Click here to see the details about our awards program)

Here are the requirements to be eligible for one of the second-tier prizes:
1. Be a member of the NAQCC at the time of the October sprint.
2. Participate in the sprint by making at least one QSO and send in the log by the submission deadline.

A spreadsheet will be used to make a list of prize-eligible members. Random numbers, generated by a computer, will be used to select the winners. Once someone has been drawn for a prize they will no longer be eligible for any of the remaining prizes. Non-winners from the first-tier will be included in the second-tier drawing.

Prizes will be drawn in the following order:
3 - 2 - 1 . . . 10 - 9 - 8 - 7 - 6 - 5 - 4

After each winner is drawn we will make an almost-realtime announcement by updating this web page with a picture of the prize and the callsign of the winner. You will probably need to refresh your browser periodically to follow the action. Email notifications will be sent to all of the winners within a day or two of the drawing and prizes will be mailed out using the addresses listed on unless we receive a request form the winner asking us to use a different address.

"The UPS driver was among the Halloween trick and treaters when he delivered a Vibroplex Code Warrior JR key last evening. This will be a great key for portable operations and daily use. I also will be able to convert it into a side swiper (cootie) key with a wire jumper when desired. Thanks to all the NAQCC volunteers who organize the great events for the club. It is very enjoyable to work the sprits each month and meet other hams who have an interest in QRP operation."

"Many, many thanks to the NAQCC and MFJ for the gift of the MFJ-259C antenna analyzer!! Not only is it a great product that I've seen used by my friends, but winning it is so timely for me. I've just moved to a new QTH and am in the middle of multiple antenna projects, including antenna options for portable operation. This is a great addition to my modest station."
