I'm tallying an update for this (half year) right now. Marc Linsalata is in both of our chapters. Since he doesn't live here, its only fair to give him up to California. He currently has 220 entries and had less than 50 in 2012, meaning its a 440-point swing for California (doubling rule), but what's fair is fair.

July 25th Update

California - 392.7
Northeast - 358.6

*see original rules for scoring calculation.

Here's some things of interest:

1. Both chapters currently have 20 members exactly with 50 or more records for the year.
2. California's accountable members total 7854 records, where as the Northeast is sitting at 7172
3. The Northeast is benefiting from eight members that get doubled-up points, whereas California has four members doubled.

I discussed this with Fundad today. All 2013 entries until the end of the month will be countable. So NE people, if you're sitting on records - get them in! We will tally the score in early February.

I don't. When NAHERP separated from NAFHA, the scripts stopped working the way they used to. I can't come up with a way to tally the scores without the proper scripts separating chapters the way they used to. I have talked to Don about it, and have spoken to fundad about it. It sucks, but I guess that was a casualty of the NAHERP split.

Thanks Jim. I appreciate it! I'd be fine with a tie. I think if all six people involved paid their $25 membership into NAHERP, I'd feel good about it. But I'm not going to be nit-picky enough to look into it.

As one of the people contributing money on the CA side, I'm prepared to call it a tie and give money to both charities.
