Here is a weird question...

Suppose I make a QSO with a QRP station. Then I check if he is a club member. Let's say he is not. Then I look up is email on QRZ.COM and send him an e-mail, asking him to join our QRP club. Next day I check if he has become a member... Yes he has! Okay, so now I can send in a report for the club contest and I get 3 points. Is this valid? I have done it a couple of times.

Just trying to be honest...  ;)

No problem, Joop, this is one purpose of the contest!  ;D

Um, that's a bit tricky. Strictly speaking the if the station wasn't a member when worked, then the contact doesn't count, though you ought perhaps to earn some brownie points for recruiting.
The main problem with working a station who later joins is the time factor between the contact and the worked station joining QRPC. If it's allowed, would a delay of a day, a week, a month.... be allowable?

It's allowed at the moment, but we can provide a deadline for the sending of the report.

Second question -
I'll be QRV for about 5 weeks as SV8/GM0LVI. Would contacts count in the contest? Same member but different QTH.
Yes, you can.

What about points?
For example, LY5G log two Contest QSO's. One with GM0LVI, second with SV8/GM0LVI.
How many Contest points earned LY5G and GM0LVI?

It depends only on the band: a station may be worked once on each band for QSO point credit.
