Re: Incoporation of HERP (naherp database) - IMPORTANT!

Jake, what's your username to log into naherp? First I will get you set up as official member. If you have your fhf username filled into your profile there, then as soon as I get you set up, the next day you will have access.

After this, you'll also be included in the scorecards.
