In summation, and hoping this thread dies, FD has different meanings for each ham and it likely has something for everyone.
Keep and open mind. In 2006, we entered 4E with natural power, running the stations on a biodiesel generator!

I don’t remember when logs didn’t have to be submitted. I remember laboring over dupe checking our logs before submitting them.
FD has power multipiers and bonus point categories but sections/states are not mults. Nor are actual logs submitted, so there is no adjudication [log checking]. Different folks view FD differently. If you keep score, some say it's automatically a contest. The one thing FD definitely provides is a chance to experience HF, CW, and SSB for clubs/hams that are mainly shack-on-the-belt oriented. It's also been the spark for a great number of young folk over the years, which is good, so whether or not it is a contest is somewhat of an empty argument.
