The points structure of the Gold City Chapter will be as follows (at least so far):

First and formost, this is NOT a contact chapter.
    The following are examples of how this chapter works:

  • N4BBQ works N4WAB on Monday and N4WAB is worth 150 points

  • On Tuesday, N4BBQ works N4WAB, but this time N4WAB is worth 155 points

  • There are two things that can happen now.

    1: If N4BBQ upgraded on Monday and used N4WAB's 150 points, then on today's upgrade, N4BBQ can only claim 5 points for N4WAB.

    2: If N4BBQ did not upgrade on Monday, then he can claim 155 points today for N4WAB

  • Also, the seals on the main certificate are bought with NEW contacts only. N4BBQ cannot work N4WAB 30 times in 30 days and earn the $1 gold seal

BONUS POINTS: To get bonus points, you can work members in blocks. For example, work 25 members with $1, send in those 25 for an additional 25 points. Collect another 25, send them in and get another 25 points. No dupes and you can get a max of 50 points. This is valid on all the seals ($1 -> 24k). You can use a dupe on a different seal. For example, you can work N4WAB on $1 and $3, etc.
