Snakes & Ladders version 1, final results It is with pleasure that I can now present to you the final result of the first run of EuCW's Snakes & Ladders. We had a total number of participants of 47, some only filed a single log, others participated every month! The results listed below, include for every participant the end-score, the rank, the number of QRAs worked, the number of QSOs made, the number of logs filed, whether the draw for the second Begali key was entered, and whether a certificate will be granted, with or without the endorsement for 12 logs filed, the latter marked with an asterix. The rank is firstly based on points deserved, subsequently on the number of QRAs worked, and finally on the number of QSOs made. If you would like to know right away, who won the two Begali keys, then look directly under the tabulated results, where the proud winners of these fine keys are announced. call, name points rank #QRAs #QSOs #logs draw cert (*) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2E0DPH, Phil: 270 21 54 552 12 yes yes* 2E0EML, David: 5 44 3 47 4 no no 2E0TEK, Graham: 20 42 8 15 4 no no 5B4AHO, Barry: 155 28 70 108 3 no no DF2OK, Mike: 70 33 20 49 4 no no DH0DK, Ben: 600 11 154 263 12 yes yes* DK2DO, Wolfgang: 25 41 2 2 2 no no DK5OE, Klaus: 245 24 41 351 12 yes yes* DL1DXL, Lothar: 605 9 139 367 11 yes yes DL1GBZ, Martin: 250 23 126 180 5 no no DL1HBL, Claus: 520 16 144 251 9 no yes DL7UGN, Mike: 380 18 83 154 11 yes yes DO1UZ, Olaf: 615 7 173 298 12 yes yes* DO2TC, Peter: 600 10 210 421 12 yes yes* EI6KH, Chris: 155 30 43 82 10 yes yes F5IYJ, Philippe: 375 19 78 113 8 no yes G0DDX, Geoff: 25 39 11 48 6 no yes G0DJA, Dave: 40 36 14 19 2 no no G0ILN, Richard: 290 20 80 310 9 no yes G0MPJ, Richard: 5 45 3 40 2 no no G0OTT, Darren: 0 47 3 3 1 no no G0POT, Michael: 45 35 13 19 1 no no G3XVL, Chris: 5 43 8 20 1 no no G3YJQ, Fred: 580 13 183 467 12 yes yes* G3ZOD, Graham: 80 32 28 85 7 no yes G4FAI, Tony: 210 25 48 68 7 no yes G4KLE, Merv: 600 12 133 832 12 yes yes* G4LHI, Peter: 720 1 273 1751 12 no yes* G5VZ, Chris: 30 37 6 6 2 no no GM0EPO, John: 425 17 91 236 12 yes yes* I2CZQ, Peter: 530 15 162 443 9 no yes IK2RMZ, Martin: 660 4 394 1751 11 no yes IK5WOB, Fabrizio: 160 27 44 53 12 yes yes* IZ1POZ, Paolo: 155 29 65 86 5 no no IZ5JLW, Lele: 55 34 41 55 3 no no M0DAG, Dean: 25 40 5 5 2 no no M0DRK, Derek: 130 31 39 220 10 yes yes M5ABN, Pete: 580 14 143 499 12 yes yes* M6DXL, Marshall: 0 46 3 7 1 no no OE3LHB, Heinz: 655 5 145 277 12 yes yes* OH7QR, Erkki: 720 2 242 970 12 yes yes* OK2BMA, Pavel: 170 26 63 82 12 yes yes* PA0ATG, Adriaan: 615 8 150 430 11 yes yes PA0DIN, Din: 265 22 78 158 12 yes yes* RN3ANT, Vitaly: 30 38 5 5 1 no no RW3AI, Valery: 720 3 236 662 12 yes yes* SP9NLI, Andy: 625 6 162 460 12 yes yes* Based on the pointing system for this first version, the three potential winners of the first Begali key are G4LHI (Peter), OH7QR (Erkki) and RW3AI (Valery), all with 720 points. As explained, if there is no clear winner based on points, then first the total number of QRAs worked shall be looked at, and then the number of QSOs. For said three participants, these numbers are as follows: G4LHI: 720 points; QRAs worked: 273; QSOs made: 1751 OH7QR: 720 points; QRAs worked: 242; QSOs made: 970 RW3AI: 720 points; QRAs worked: 236; QSOs made: 662 This means that the first Begali key goes to Peter, G4LHI, with 720 points and the highest number of 273 locator squares worked over the full period of 12 months. Congratulations G4LHI, Peter! The second Begali is to be given to a participant who filed at least 10 logs over the 12 month period of S&Lv1. There were 21 participants fulfilling this requirement, excluding Peter, G4LHI, who already won the first Begali key, and Martin, IK2RMZ, who is part of the organising team. Listed alphabetically by call-sign and numbered respectively, the participants in the draw are: 1. 2E0DPH, Phil 2. DH0DK, Ben 3. DK5OE, Klaus 4. DL1DXL, Lothar 5. DL7UGN, Mike 6. DO1UZ, Olaf 7. DO2TC, Peter 8. EI6KH, Chris 9. G3YJQ, Fred 10. G4KLE, Merv 11. GM0EPO, John 12. IK5WOB, Fabrizio 13. M0DRK, Derek 14. M5ABN, Pete 15. OE3LHB, Heinz 16. OH7QR, Erkki 17. OK2BMA, Pavel 18. PA0ATG, Adriaan 19. PA0DIN, Din 20. RW3AI, Valery 21. SP9NLI, Andy To determine the winner of the second key, EuCW's ECMs have been asked to send in a number between 1 and 100, without knowing the list above in advance. All numbers received have been added and the resulting sum has been divided by 21. The result of this division can be expressed as an integer number (the truncated result of the division) with a remainder between 0 and 20. The winner of the second key is the participant who's number corresponds to said remainder plus 1, so as to obtain a number between 1 and 21. The numbers received from the 9 ECMs that replied were: 5, 21, 21, 32, 37, 64, 75, 77 and 80. This adds up to a total of 412. Divided by 21, this gives a truncated result of 19, with a remainder of 13. Plus 1, means that number 14 in the list is the winner of the second key. So also M5ABN, Pete: congratulations! This finalises the first run of Snakes & Ladders. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did, and I look forward to receiving your logs for Snakes and Ladders version 2. Good luck to you all, best 73s, Robert, DM4RW (mgr S&L)
