NAQCC 2018 Anniversary Sprint Prize Drawing

Our anniversary sprint prize drawing will be held on Sunday, October 21, 2018 starting at 7:00 PM EDT (2300 UTC). This page should refresh itself every 15 seconds so that you can follow the drawing as prizes are awarded in almost real-time.

Drawing Details:

As we have done in the past, our fourteenth 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 update this web page with a picture of the prize and the callsign of the winner. This page is designed to refresh itself every 15 seconds so that you can follow the action in almost real-time but if that doesn't work on your browser you might need to refresh the page manually. 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 from the winner asking us to use a different address.
