From Dan KC5GXL:
Interesting thread! Why not score it like darts 501? Everyone starts
with say, 1000 points and you work down to Zero points. The object
would be to see how many skcc members one can work to get exactly
zero. The one who uses the most members, that actually decrease the
total score, wins.
IE: It might take 20 members to get down to 40 points, then to reach
zero points it may take 3 or 4 members. Of course if you work someone
who is 41, that contact doesn't count.
Whatcha all think?
Have fun with this one.
From Kevin K4VD:
Dan... what an interesting idea. A contest based on 301. Would we have to double in and double out? Can a team concept be applied?
In this case, I think Detrick is proposing an awards program similar to Centurion and Tribune. But I think your idea of an SKCC Darts tournement (contest) might be developed into something very fun an interesting. I hope this idea develops.
Another group (070 Club) has a contest based on golf. I tried coming up with something similar but with a bowling theme but haven't had any success yet. Actually, I prefer darts to bowling.
From Don NN8B:
Assign values in a random drawing based on past participants in the SKS.
From Kevin K4VD:
Hmm. Don't know. Could the last two digits of the SKCC number be used?
My score sheet:
269 2500 (bullseye)
Date/time order is important.
00 (such as 2500) would be a bullseye worth 50 points.
Note I ended with double 11's. Now that's with 101, it would be a bit longer with 301. Or maybe stay with 101 and just use the last digit of the SKCC number? But the last two scores must be a duplicate (for the double). If we work 2-person teams, each match might be shorter. If it is a true tournament, we would have to have players/team register. Then we could have teams play each other at a certain starting time (maybe this is a weekend thing?). The winning team (first to reach zero) in a match moves on to the next round.
I'm just rambling here. No serious thought put into it yet. I'm actually stealing Dan's idea but this sounds to me like it could be a blast. Maybe even have a trophy for the winning team. Make it an annual event.
