True, but it contributes nothing to what I'd have to imagine as the original intent of the award. It's similar to the often-maligned pair of grid-circling rovers that rack up contest points by working each other hundreds of times and making little or no effort to work others. Impressive scores, an interesting achievement, but a hollow victory.

This should be fun!

This may already be baked into the award, but I think something like this should have a special award for #1 - maybe a nice plaque, with certificates after.  Obviously numbered for the top 5 or <?> ?

#1 is certainly going to be won by someone 6M Es single-hop distance away from central NM or possibly someone living in central NM.

OK Phil, we wanted an award that was achievable, but not trivial.  The October 1, 2017 start date was decided on so that everyone would start from scratch.
