See the message below from the sponsor of the out-of-state club plaque 
in the California QSO Parties about the results and awards from the 2005 
CQP and a challenge to SECC to try for his plaque this year.  I have 
replied to Marc that we have been trying for the past two years at 
least, hi.  73, John, K4BAI.

I don't know about the Four-land QSO Party. Guess it was before I became 
a ham
in May 2000.

If anything I would think a Four-land QSO party would get more activity that
individual state QSO parties.
Although FQP certainly does a good job of it.

Now that's interesting:
8 states in 7-land
8 states in 4-land
8 states in 0-land

FYI - you and the other Georgia folks certainly did well in the 2005 
QSO Party (CQP).
Kevin and I (and others like W6OAT) collated and stamped the
results/certificates/plaques yesterday to send out.

3 GA stations in the Non-California top 20 for CQP 2005.

Shameless plug here - are you associated with any GA or SECC/etc. 
contest clubs
who could make a run for my "Top Club, Non-California" plaque in 2006?

TCG won it the first year I sponsored it and CCO has won it the last 2
