Not in the past 60 years at least. :)  And I can't think of a good 
reason for doing so. FD is about emergency preparedness, learning to 
improvise setups away from home,  learning operating skills, mentoring 
new hams, and exposing people to ham radio. While it's not officially a 
contest, we've treated it like one for all of the 60 years I've been 
doing it. But many hams don't -- rather, it's an excuse for a club 
picnic. Whatever turns you on, go for it. It's all in the spirit of ham
