Castle Craig Plus Award
Purpose: To provide a way for Castle Craig Certificate
Holders to participate in program which allows
them to exchange points on the air to upgrade.
When: This program started January 1, 1999.
Qualifications: Hold the basic and the first two seals.
Once you acquire the basic Castle Craig Certificate plus the Seal Of Meriden and The Flag of Connecticut upgrades, you are eligible for the Castle Craig Plus Program.
It is not necessary to hold the Constitution State Award but we still encourage everyone to work toward this upgrade.
Here is how the program works.
When you have the Seal and Flag, you may start collecting points for the Castle Craig Plus Program.
Your initial value, (and everyone's who have the seal and flag), at the start of the program is 10 Points and that is what you exchange on the air until your first upgrade.
If you DO NOT have the seal and flag you can not work Castle Craig Plus, and are not worth any points to any station collecting points for Castle Craig Plus.
All stations MUST keep track of their total points collected and this
information must be submitted to the Certificate Manager, (N1API), along
with your new claimed points at EACH upgrade.
Points are exchanged at 200 for 1.
You only need to record the basic Castle Craig Number, the letters after the basic number are not needed for this program.
A suggested form follows:

Upgrade Bonus Levels:

automatically receive the following bonus points;

Level 5 500 Pts. +25 Pts.

When your "on the air" point value reaches 1000 points you will be an IQ for
the Castle Craig Basic and first two seals.
