Dayton Hamvention Awards Committee Withdraws 2013 Amateur of the Year Award:
The Dayton Hamvention Awards Committee announced on April 7 that it
would be withdrawing its Amateur of the Year Award for 2013. According
to Dayton Hamvention General Chairman Charles Kaiser, KD8JZR, the
committee had received "conflicting information from credible sources
regarding the accuracy of the winning nomination." After verifying
these reports, Kaiser made the decision to withdraw the award for 2013.
"Unfortunately, this changes the way we score for the Amateur of the
Year Award," Kaiser said in a statement
http://www.hamvention.org/awards.php on the Hamvention website.
"Since the competition was close with other nominees, the outcome would
have been different." Kaiser then made the decision to not award the
Amateur of the Year Award for 2013 to any of the other nominees. The
other awards for 2013 -- the Technical Excellence Award, the Special
Achievement Award and the Club of the Year Award -- are not affected by

Does anyone have a clue as to what this even means: "....conflicting information from credible sources regarding the accuracy of the winning nomination..." That has to be one of the weakest non-explanations for a decision I have ever seen.
