Re: How about a "newbie" sprint?

Ted <pegduck56@...>

agree, Joe, but serial number is irrelevant. It is just another hassle to log, like the member number. I think all events should be 'open' with simple basic exchanges.

Good idea to invite non-members into the contest.  They will see what fun it is and maybe join.

The exchange for non-members could be 599 and a serial number (001,002 etc) in place of a member number.
EPC does that and it seems to work.

But that would put many non-English speaking countries at a severe disadvantage:

 Lundi, mardi, mercredi, juedi …

Another option is that all new members who joined in 2015 are worth the bonus points.  ....  But only on days with "Y" .

I just thought of something (watch out!)  How about every year have a sprint where new members count 3 points (those that have joined in the last calender year), members count 2 points, and non-members 1? Just an idea.  I know we have a contest just about every month, but let's think it out.

Good afternoon
No really dramatic thoughts.
Name could be "Celebrating 2015 in 2015"
Might be a chance to encourage PSK31  on a variety of bands:
Maybe a skewed points loading - 20 & 40m 1 Point,  10m 2 points, 15m 3 points
80m 4 points ans 160m 6 points.
Bonus points for out of continental USA
Two Categories Max 50w and QRP 5w
Look forward to playing.

IMHO,   making contests open to non=members would encourage the to become members.   Much like 10-10 does by allowing 2 pts  for members, but only 1 pt for non-members. Doing this would make non-members feel as though they mattered.  I've always thought that "members only" contests were too exclusive and somehow held membership numbers down.
Just my opinion for what it's worth.

Having the member number in the required exchange makes it a
private party unless you let non members use 0000 or some such.
It might be nice to encourage prospective members to give the
club contests a try.
