Re: 366 Chasers / Other Endorsements

stan W9SMR
 

David and all Endorsement chasers.

I received reassurance from Executive Director, Jim, K5SP, that "the 366 award is for working every day of the year. It can span years, it can take some over 4 years if they miss leap year. So, we could say that for now, the 366 award is there for perpetuity, just like the WTW".

So, with the patience of all, we will work our way out of these difficulties. And we'll need your support to make it work. Be prepared to step up and volunteer to assist as you are able. Look for specific appeals to come.

While you have some spare time, upload your log to the Endorsement Checker and check your standings. You may be surprised at what you have accomplished.

Upload here: Progress Checker<https://eur05.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fhamclubs.info%2F070-checker%2F&data=02%7C01%7C%7C86b1db1176b241741a7108d7ee3239c6%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637239771792255075&sdata=J34dXcfXp2TlvR8f5UshrYHiy07MDG5YTLk%2BEwb8zOk%3D&reserved=0>



366 - The chase for the 366 Award peaked on February 29. Per my rough count, 25 of our members grabbed Leap Day and are on their way to grab the Award for 366.



LONP - Progress for your LONP Award can be tough initially. Consider it a right-of-passage! The first hurdle is that 100 level. Only 431 of our members have accomplished that.



In the last 2 months, the following members working toward LONP 100 level have uploaded and we see good progress. Many of these uploads were from new members, just getting started. Or maybe long time members just now getting back into PSK-31.

WTW - Keep an eye open for your Work The World (WTW) Award. It is not an easy thing to get. Here’s a good example.

Hi All,

I’m totally OK with this idea. I was reluctant to vote in the poll because I didn’t want to deny others some part of the club they really enjoy. But I guess it’s not like you can be into PSK and not be computer literate. ;-)

Re: Certificates

Jerry N9AVY
 

If you print certificates on regular white printer paper they come out kind of boring. What I've done in past is to go to local office supply stores and purchase certificate stock; of course, you will probably get more than you can use, but you might go in with one of 2 others and share the expense. They usually come 50 sheets to a pack with pre-printed borders or without. The paper usually has some texture and hue which makes anything printed on it eye-appealing.

Just a thought.
