The NCCC, sponsor of the California QSO Party, is considering rule changes for 2020 to encourage more expeditions to rare counties by awarding bonus points to clubs' aggregate scores. Although these are not final, the NCCC is seeking input from clubs regarding the potential changes. Please respond to the reflector or me with any feedback or suggestions for other changes. Thanks.

1. An expedition that makes at least 100 QSOs in any of the Top 10 rarest counties of CQP 2019, or to
any of 25 other counties that were only covered by expeditions or were one station away from being
on this Top 10 list: 100,000 bonus points for their club. List of these counties posted on cqp.org.
2. An expedition that makes at least 100 QSOs from any county not covered by #1: 50,000 bonus
points for their club.
3. Any operation (does not have to be an expedition) that makes at least 100 QSOs from any of the
Top 10 rarest states or Canadian multipliers: 100,000 bonus points for their club.
4. Mobile stations, MCE (Multi-County Expedition), county-line stations and remotely operated stations
are also eligible to participate.
5. A club can claim a maximum of 500,000 bonus points. CA clubs and non-CA clubs are eligible for
these bonus points.
6. Bonus points are per multiplier, not per callsign. Examples:
a. A club cannot have five expeditions to Trinity County and claim 500,000 bonus points. This
would be a 100,000 point bonus.
b. A club can mount an expedition to Sutter County, have another club member rent and operate from the VY2TT lodge in Prince Edward Island, and gain 200,000 bonus points if each
station makes at least 100 QSOs.
c. A mobile station that makes at least 100 QSOs in each of five different counties in #1 would
contribute 500,000 bonus points to its club.
d. A county line expedition from GLEN/MEND making over 100 QSOs would contribute 200,000
bonus points to its club.
e. An MCE operation from Butte County on Saturday and Lassen County on Sunday, with at
least 100 QSOs in each county, would contribute 200,000 bonus points to its club.
7. Bonus points are only added to club totals; individual station scores are unaffected. Bonus points
are allocated to clubs in the same way as individual scores: in the case of a Multi-Op expedition
where different operators are members of different clubs, the operators may elect to allocate bonus
points proportionately across the different clubs.
