In the TARA Tour'ney,
the contestants are competing for the honor of
emerging as the annual King or Queen
of the digital modes. The scores to achieve this
are an aggregate of all their individual Tour'ney credits derived from their
scores from the four (4) TARA All Season Contests. Each contest is a separate
entity and has its own awards. Click
here to checkout the certificates
available. The results of each will be displayed on the Tara
Results web page where you will find the results of all the contests for the Tour'ney year as they are run.
| These credits will be calculated for each contest submission
and you will see them included on your OnLine Score Submission Form in
each contest. Each
power entry will be normalized on it's QSO count, so that if you are
running a power level of up to 5 watts your QSO total will be x30,
up to 20 watts will
get x20, up to 100 watts, x10 and
up to Legal Limit
will get x5, thus a single, normalized score table
will result / mode
SWR entries, since they do not qualify for Tour'ney credit will have a multiplier of x1.
OK! so we have rationalized the different power entries into one normalized table.
Now to show a running, accumulative Tour'ney credit total from one contest to the next we will use a multi-mode calculation, and take the number of normalized QSO's and multiply them by the sum of the Multipliers:
|Total Tour'ney credits = total # QSO's x (sum of Mults)|
|The highest total of Tour'ney points can claim a very
handsome Plaque which can only be claimed once in his/her lifetime after which
any future wins will get a high quality year endorsement for adding to the
Your accumulated Tour'ney credits can be viewed on Les Results du Tour'ney web page.
After all this effort by the winning Amateur, surely they will be recognized as the
World Digital Contest Leader. :)
Ok! lets throw a few rules out there to make it interesting eh!
Come and join us in this exciting, new contest concept and Enjoy. :)
