Each team to select a Gaffer, a team leader, whose responsibility it is to
correlate the team members scores, dupe the Multipliers, submit the Team
information to TARA via the
OnLine Score Submission Form, and to make sure TARA post em! correctly.
Since each team member is also encouraged to submit a non-team, individual
entry, single/single operation is the only operating category allowed in the
individual can only be a member of one team.
Each team is allowed up to 5 members, and can be comprised of mixed
category operators. Super, Great or Normal, each picking up their respective category Power Multipliers.
Team members are responsible for
sending the Gaffer their QSO count and multiplier list.
The Gaffer then applies a Power Multiplier to the individual
QSO totals. For any member operating GREAT category, multiply the number of QSO's by
2, and for the SUPER category multiply by 3. Then add all the QSO's together
without duping em! and enter this figure in the Total Number of QSO's
box on the Score Submission Form. The multipliers however, are a different
kettle of fish. The amalgamated Multipliers MUST be duped. Remember multipliers
count per band. To assist ya! in duping and calculating your Team Score please
download this Dupe Sheet and a Score Calculation Sheet. Now enter these figures in the multiplier table provided on the
Score Form, add Soap comments if you want, then click on SEND.
Don't forget the Form will calculate the final score. Please remember to select Team Challenge as
Operating Category and to enter the name of your team in the Call
Members can be spread
geographically. The smart Gaffer will probably select a DX
diversified team to enhance the teams multipliers..
Each team must declare
its name or ID and each of its members names and
callsigns, at least 24 hours
before contest kickoff. You can add and drop members
from the Team up until this dead line. Then the Teams will be frozen. These
declarations will be posted on the Results web page along with the
teams other declarations.
All Rumble Teams, please use this link to declare your team officially! CLICK HERE
The team Gaffer can
throw a challenge to another team indicating that they will
whip em! Royally in the contest. If accepted by the other team, this
challenge will be posted in the team's declaration on the Results
web page. The winning team will add 100 points to its total and the loosing team
subtracts100 points. A maximum of 5 teams can be challenged by a single team for
a total of +/- 500 whip em! points on the final score. Once the
challenge is declared, if the challenged team declines, that
challenge cannot be used again so think carefully before challenging :)
Since the Teams total scores
are important for applying the challenge bonus points to the
Grand Totals, I ask the Gaffers to make sure the members submit there
scores a.s.a.p. This score correction will be applied by TARA from the data
