We in our no-monetary-prize environment are not alone.
In the world of tournament bridge - another no-prize-money competition -  
last year it was deemed necessary to prohibit not only the use of, but also  
possession of, cell phones and the like in or near the playing areas.  The  
chance of an unethical competitor passing unauthorized information to a 
friend  or teammate was considered too high.
In a recent national tournament in Washington DC, a team was penalized for  
a violation (probably inadvertent) of this, for which the penalty (think 5  
mults in radio terms) was more than their final margin of defeat.
Stamp collectors need to be very concerned about cheating - as in fraud,  
forgeries, etc.

Random  station Inspections ..... for a hobby?
Granted it's a  bit more than stamp  collecting, but it isn't in the
same class as  NASCAR or Olympic class  sports with endorsements, etc.
Well, not to  the vast majority of the   participants.
