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
BUT ... THERE's MORE!!!
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!
