The Remembrance Day contest is a Wireless Institute of Australia Contest
that pits VK State against VK state -


This contest commemorates the Amateurs who died during World War II and is
designed to encourage friendly participation and help improve the operating
skills of participants. It is held on the weekend closest to the 15th
August, the date on which hostilities ceased in the southwest Pacific area. 


It has a simple formula, 


Determination of Winning State or Territory. 
State score = (Total points from logs submitted) divided by (number of
licencees in the state or Territory), excluding beacons and repeaters as
published in the WIA Callbook for that year.




What would be your reaction to the contest including US states for a special
one off year ? 2015 is the 70th Anniversary of VP Day and the Year is the
100th Anniversary of the ANZAC engagement at Gallipoli ( Australians and New
Zealand Army Corp)


ANZAC http://www.awm.gov.au/commemoration/anzac/anzac-tradition/


I am interested in the reaction as I would like to put a proposal to the WIA
to amend the rules for a one off event.
