This is the problem of moving the 3cm trophy from Sat to Sun.
Bad idea IMHO.
It wasn't broke....

The tricky point for me is if I work a station on 3cm in the RSGB UHF on Saturday, and want to work them again in the 3cm Trophy on Sunday, we both have to find a way to accept the dupes, or both close down the UHF contest and open the Trophy. Also, how do I persuade someone not taking part in the Trophy to work me a second time as a dupe in the UHF so I can get the points in the Trophy? Ok, they don't lose any points by scrubbing the first contact, but it's awkward, especially if the station is in EU.
Nothing to stop RSGB non-members from joining in the fun of the contest and giving points away, but they can only put in a checklog. It would be huge fun if a non-member was to put in the highest score as a checklog.
