Distribution of Awards

Our log-check team endeavors to do its best to publish results as soon as possible after the CQP.  The bulk of the awards will be mailed out if recipients don't pick them up at the INDXC in Visalia, CA in April or the Dayton, OH Hamvention in May.  E-mail to CQP Info to let us know if you can collect your awards at one of these two conventions.
