>Let's go on to something more positive that will add to
our hobby and quit bitching!
One of the most important things we can do is figure out ways to increase
participation in contests.
Discriminating against contestants who your organization has invited to
participate in their contests but who are not members of your organization
does not seem to be an appropriate way to do this.
Paying attention to small details like this is one good way to promote
fellowship and a more positive outlook on the larger amateur radio
contesting community. Sweeping details like this under the carpet only
causes the problem to fester in an unhealthy manner.
