WLOTA Bulletin N° 16 & 17/2021.

News :
About WLOTA diploma's for best expedition and Trophy for the best WLOTA expedition. The HQ
reflected on the problem of the diplomas of the best expeditions as well as the annual trophy.
These will no longer be automatic each year. Indeed, how to award a diploma of this value for a
single expedition in a continent having been carried out from a hotel ?

We are at the following reflection:
- Every year on February 15, the HQ will inform if there are these diplomas and in which continent.
- Every year on March 01, the HQ will inform if there will be the trophy for the best expedition.

Our criteria without being revealed will be 5 in number:
Sporting // Technological // Ham Radio spirit // Number of expeditions and WLOTA activated (%).
Obviously, only expeditions that have sent a film will be taken into account.

HQ and Checkpoint members cannot participate in this diploma's and trophies.

This is the WLOTA Bulletin N° 14 & 15/2021.

Info :
- Best expedition 2020 :
Given the COVID pandemic, the year 2020 did not have enough validated expeditions to award the
diplomas and trophies of the best expeditions.

For 2021 the decision is not yet taken,

However a modification of these diplomas and trophies will be announced soon. It is not possible to
award a diploma when there is not enough validated expedition in the same continent. It wouldn't be
serious.
