Perhaps you've already heard about this new contest?
The Fox Mike Hotel Portable Operations Challenge
October 3 & 4, 2020
https://foxmikehotel.com/challenge/

Home stations competing against portable stations?
You'll have to read the description, but it seems that there is a
handicap type scoring system, kind of like in golf

Be sure to hover the mouse over the POC button on the right of their
website to see the additional links such as the rules.
 
Final updated rules:
