Things to do when you enter a contest for club competition:
 
When you operate radio contests and would like to contribute to a club effort, the LCC would appreciate your points. Please check the contest rules, you must be a member in good standing for CLUB competition, but need not be a member for TEAM competition. No log is too small. Simply add the following line to your Cabrillo Log file for club competition:

CLUB: Louisiana Contest Club

And enter Louisiana Contest Club # followed by your assigned team number for Team competition.

Most logging programs will prompt you for the name of your club and create the appropriate line in your Cabrillo file. Simply type " Louisiana Contest Club " when prompted for the club name.
