Got home from hospital and read this thread. I am of the opinion that we should open it up, and help prospective members get their 50.

I echo Chris' comments. I had a long QSO with a local ham (N3SC) just getting active again and anxious to join the 070. I had to apologize that the big St. Paddy contest was members only and she would be lucky to get many QSOs toward her 50 required.
I vote to open it up.
Matt, Over here it can be very lonely trying to take part in a closed test. I have experience of that test and I have had people trying to join in and, “give me some points”. To then say thanks but it is only for members is in my opinion too elitist and could be construed as unfriendly. I cannot see the benefit of a closed test. Thanks for your work. Chris G7OGX #827

2 points for members and 1 point for non-members has always worked for other groups. (Maybe 3 pts fer YLs !)
Open it up as soon as possible for the word to get out. Don't wait a year.
Personally I would be happy for it to be open or closed>
Open it would be a good marketing tool for the club.
Anything we can do to encourage the use of PSK31 is only for the good.
I think that at this late stage of the game this year it would be best to leave it as it is and make the change in 2019.
If we are going to open it up, and require member numbers we will have to standardize the entry for non members_maybe 0000.
