CQ doesn't do the wood. Volunteers roped into the job by CQ

The most egregious wood plaque sponsoring program is associated with
The Stew Perry TopBand DX Challenge sponsored by The Boring Amateur
Radio Club enveloping the world 1500Z 30 Dec to 1500Z 31 Dec 2006, which
also has very cool certificates noting accomplishments upon the field of
Have you donated $ for a plaque yet this season? Doesn't really
make a difference which contest it is as long as you enjoy it and want
it to flourish. Makes the RF tussle just a bit more interesting.
