As promised, the Metro KING OF THE HILL for
"Round One" is Jerry, K9PY, "Round Two" is Barry,
N2BJ and "Round Three" is Ralph, K9ZO. Let's all give the
winners our thanks for
putting in a great effort for these events! Unfortunately, there is no
plaque or banner for the winners, only a colorful certificate and, of course, bragging rights. So
shout it to the rooftops as much as you want! Congratulations!
be a year-long competition! Yes, something fun to do while we're stuck at home
and later when things return to normal. The year-long competition will result in
the METRO KING OF THE MOUNTAIN and the
winner will be announced after the end of the year. And, there will be a prize
awarded to the winner! Following the eligible contest, the winner of the KING OF THE HILL
will be announced. You can keep track of the various contestants on our web page
so you can see your standings along with the other Metro members. The total of
the number of QSOs for each qualifying contest will be used to determine who
will be the ultimate METRO
KING OF THE MOUNTAIN!
The "qualifying contests" are listed below.
For scoring, a person can earn the "King of the Hill" once per quarter for the top number of QSOs in a "qualified contest". However, the number of QSOs that are made in each of the qualifying contests will accumulate and the final total of QSOs will be used to determine the "METRO KING OF THE MOUNTAIN" that will be awarded at the Winterfest dinner, probably in January, 2021. That way you'll keep accumulating QSOs throughout the year toward the final goal. To keep a level playing field, only single operator entries will be eligible.
Here are the "Qualifying Contests":
May: The Hamvention QSO Party May 16. WINNER: Ralph K9ZO
June: Field Day June 27.
IARU: July 12.
August: NAQP-SSB August 15.
September: WA State Salmon Run Sept. 19.
October: CA QSO Party October 3.
November: ARRL Sweepstakes SSB November 21.
December: RAC Winter December 19.
This should give every member a chance to add to their QSO totals whether it is SSB or CW.
Now, get on the air and have some fun!!
