In the CC Clubs are normally like mined locals who meet regually, to  
have members all over the country and Europe pushes the rules a bit I  
would think. Then there is advertising for members this has to prove  
that it is not a "local club" as most of us would describe. There  
again they do well in other Contests. As well as help the RSGB on  
committees, they are after all like the rest of us radio amateurs  
interested in the hobby but it is not all about winning everything  
going. If you win three years you cannot win the following year you  
can enter but it would be as a check log, just a thought.
