Because participation will drop off 90% or more.  If you don't have scores and
awards, hams with egos won't participate.  How much turnout do you think there
is for the Simulated Emergency Test that's written up in QST?  Isn't this a
similar event?  I've never participated in one, and I'll bet a lot of
CONTESTERS on this reflector haven't either.
