This is very true. Even if circumstances are engineered to level the playing 
field (i.e.WRTC) there are still going to be big scores and small scores. There 
has to be something more to this or most of us would quit. 

I think we're confusing winning with recogition. 

This "21st century" outlook on contest results should be enlightened enough to 
recognize strong efforts by participants that aren't making Top Ten scores. The 
ARRL's regional coverage on the Web based reult is an important first step, and 
I one for appreciate it.
