If you were in a club (of any kind) and were tasked with developing the facet of the club member's Love for the hobby, how would you approach that?
Having been in Amatuer Radio for many years , they face this same issue. The solution was contests and for people who do want to participate in contests you have contests , you just can't call it a contest. You'd be surprised how much money people will spend to win a contest. You have to have a small enough number of categories to keep it a challenge and large enough so that small guys , compete with small guys and big guys with big guys , teams against teams . They all need to think they have a chance. And you need enough of them happening often enough to keep people interested.If you were in a club (of any kind) and were tasked with developing the facet of the club member's Love for the hobby, how would you approach that?
