Well I have 95 LOTW confirms and more than enough contacts to complete confirms for the award. Don’t know how it will shake out though, five more LOTW confirms quickly or trickle in. I have a card checker in Fort Smith I can send my QSL cards to to get scanned and submitted to ARRL. But ARRL HQ is not reviewing any new physical cards sent to HQ at the moment because of the shutdown in CT. They will honor the scanned card checked cards and application. So I may qualify in a few days or a few weeks. LOL.
It’s a fun award to pursue though and I urge everyone to make it a goal at some point. With the digital modes available now for the award, it is not quite as daunting with much less antenna required.
Get on HF and go for it!
