 Dear Fellow Contesters -

We are happy to announce the winners of the Spring 2011 NCCC Sprint Ladder, known to its beloved devotees as 'Thursday Night Contesting'.   They are (drum roll please ...):

Overall Ladder and Atlantic:   Eric, NO3M
East Central Division:             Karl, K9BGL
West Central Division:           Todd, WD0T (@KD0S)
Western Division:                   Dan, K7SS
NCCC in CA/NV:                    Ken, N6RO

Special mention goes out to the 'Runner-Ups' of each division for their hard work and fine improvement in this ladder:   N4AF, KW8N, K5OT (@K5TR), KK7S and N6ZFO!

 And now for the 'Super Top Secret Double-Blind Random Weighted Drawing' for two bottles of 'ham-grown' wine graciously provided by Ed W0YK and Muns Vineyards:

Wine Winner #1:     Rod, W7OM
Wine Winner #2:     Ken, N6RO


In addition to the 'Wine Winners', this Ladder we also randomly drew a dozen lucky recipients of 'Thursday Night Contesting' brand #2 'secret weapon' pencils, which have been statistically proven to improve your NS score!   (If you don't believe us, just ask DanWa or see this link:  http://preview.tinyurl.com/3qqq58w* ...)   Pencil winners are not listed here, but were drawn using the same 'randomly weighted drawing' criteria - we hope they will be pleasantly surprised when the mailman arrives!

The NCCC Sprint is a 30-minute 'adrenaline shot' of radiosport each Thursday evening from 0230-0300 GMT.   It's a great way to brush up on your SO2R skills or test your setup ahead of the upcoming weekend's contest activity.   Modified NA Sprint rules apply - Low Power only.   DX Stations are welcome - just sign 'DX' in your exchange.   Participants score up to 5 chances to win the wine drawing using these criteria:  '#1 in Division, #1 or #2 in Division, Top-25% Score in Division, Minimum 5-Week Participation, and Perfect 10-Week Participation'.    More information and complete rules can be found at 'www.ncccsprint.com'

Congratulations to all and see you on Thursday Nights!
