Each month the SKCC Weekend Sprintathon features one or more Bonus Stations.  In SKCC jargon, these stations are referred to as EGGs.
Theme for June 2024 — to be announced,
This month (June 2023) the bonus involves “Old Timers and Summer Bands”.  If you held an amateur radio license 25 years ago or longer you will send your name/XX (number of years licensed).  You can collect an additional 5 points for each QSO by using the “Summer Bands” during this SKCC event.

 

SKCC runs a monthly activity, which is a great environment for getting comfortable with contest-like CW QSOs.

The Weekend Sprintathon (WES) spans a weekend, each with a fun theme for collecting bonus points.
These events provide a great opportunity for those seeking various SKCC recognition levels, besides contacting friends old and new!

Typically, SKCC operators will QRS to the speed of the station calling them.
