2013 NORTHEAST DATA CONTEST

Post by brick911 »

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 as was the case in 2012. This year the field is open AND starting to level out as more and more of the county records get filled.

This contest is designed to encourage new vouchered records into the database. 2013 and historic data are both permitted.

FIVE WAYS TO WIN!!!

A. Overall - New York and New England
B. Overall - 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 9/1/12.

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 12/31/13. Entries made after this date will not be counted.

4. Prizes listed below...

PREVIOUS WINNERS:

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

2012 -
A. Overall - New York and New England... Larry Clarfeld
B. Overall - PA/NJ to VA... Michael Kirby
C. Total species... Michael Kirby
D. Total counties... Stephen Staedtler
E. Rookie Overall... Andrea Howlett

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

**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.

Here's the 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.

Added this year: Herp Nation Subscription

Option: If none of these books appeal to a winner, a $40 donation will be given to his/her favorite conservation charity.

All books will be signed.

I'm doing an update the first week of June if you want to see where you stand. Get your records in!

If you are new to entering data, or haven't done it in a while - look at your PM's for a message from me. I need to get you set up as an official member, which gives you voting rights and includes you in all my contest updates.
