NAQP Challenge

2018 finishes with SMC winning! 

SMC won the August SSB round of the NAQP Challenge and has thus won the overall 2018 NAQP Challenge.  This is the second year in a row that SMC has won the Challenge, the first back-to-back win for any club in the six-year history of the event.

PVRC had an incredible participant count of 154 for the August SSB contest, an all-time record for a single club in any single NAQP event since the Challenge started in 2013, and SMC was close behind with a participant count of 150.  However, SMC posted much larger logs, racking up 2.4M in log scores compared to only 1.6M in log scores for PVRC.  The result is a win for SMC in the August SSB event, by a wide margin.  NCCC is third in the August SSB and DFWCG fourth.  That also mirrors the order of finish for the overall Challenge: SMC 1st, PVRC 2nd, NCCC 3rd and DFWCG 4th.
