W1AW Centennial Operations Move to Indiana, Rhode Island:

The ARRL Centennial W1AW WAS http://www.arrl.org/files/file/On%20the%20Air/W1AW_2014_sked.pdf operations taking place throughout 2014 from each of the 50 states now are in Indiana and Rhode Island. They will relocate at 0000 UTC on Wednesday, July 30 (the evening of July 29 in US time zones), to South Dakota (W1AW/0) and Kentucky (W1AW/4). During 2014 W1AW will be on the air from every state (at least twice) and most US territories, and it will be easy to work all states solely by contacting W1AW portable operations.

The ARRL Centennial QSO Party http://www.arrl.org/centennial-qso-party kicked off January 1 for a year-long operating event in which participants can accumulate points and win awards. The event is open to all, although only ARRL members and appointees, elected officials, HQ staff and W1AW are worth ARRL Centennial QSO Party points http://www.arrl.org/centennial-qso-party#Table.

Working W1AW/x from each state is worth 5 points per mode/contact, even when working the same state during its second week of activity. The ARRL has posted an ARRL Centennial QSO Party leader board that participants can use to determine how many points they have accumulated.

It seems to me that ARRL is endorsing contest operations on the WARC bands. The Centennial QSO Party awards "points" for contacts and makes awards based on scores. Sound like the definition of a contest to me. Let the games begin!
