DISQUALIFIED:

Nate N. (spinifer), Kyle Loucks, Bob Ferguson (brick911) - These three members will be included in the scoring charts, but none will be able to claim any prizes. This year, the field is open!

This contest is designed to encourage new vouchered records into the database. 2012 and historic data are both permitted.

NEW DIVISIONS - FIVE WAYS TO WIN!!!

A. Overall (according to Nate's scoring system provided below) New York and New England
B. Overall (according to scoring system provided below) PA/NJ to VA
C. Total species
D. Total counties
E. Rookie Overall (historic and current records allowed) - This can be any person who joins throughout the year or has entered his first record after the date of 9/1/11.

CONTEST RULES:

1. This contest will be based on a point system. The person with the highest number of points in each division will win. A person can win a maximum of two divisions. If someone wins three, we defer to the second place individual on the third and so on.

1 point = If the species/subspecies has already been vouchered for that county
(1 point per species per county).
3 points = If the species/subspecies is a new county record for the database.
5 points = If the species/subspecies is the first species vouchered for that county.

2. Only vouchered species found in the Northeastern States are eligible.

3. Contest ends on 12/31/12. Entries made after this date will not be counted.

4. Prizes to be announced as soon as I have them solidified. That said, get your records in anyway!

PREVIOUS WINNERS:

2009 - Kyle Loucks
2010 - Kyle Loucks
2011 - Nate Nazdrowicz

---------------------------------------------------------------

**Please do not compromise the integrity of the database. These contests are designed to increase records in the database and meant to be fun and motivating. Manufacturing or falsifying data will not be tolerated.

**Avoid data inflation. Each individual herp should not be entered into the database by multiple people.

We encourage all data entries, however only those with vouchers are eligible for the contests.

Ok, I think I have a solid base of what I'm calling a "prize pool." What this means is I'm not going to assign any particular prize to any particular winner. I will list the prizes and each winner can whatever he/she wants. If all five winners pick the same prize, I have that covered, so no worries. I still might add a few options to this prize pool, but here's is what is available to all winners.

All books will be signed.

What great additions to my collection! I really want to thank Bob for putting this all together for us and hope that everyone works hard this year to try and beat me in the contest because we could use more records for the database....that and I'm so going for back to back wins!

-Mike
