Next Time we run the contest we need to revamp the rules just a bit. We need to make sure Every Team has a Captain, or the Team Score doesn''t count. The Captains need to have every team members contacts, names, email, phone, some way to get ahold of them. When posting birds for the Contest, *All Birds* need to be posted in their teams area, otherwise they don't count for your team, this year we had birds posted in the teams area, the general discussion, different states threads, all over the site. Each Team needs to have a Score Card posted in their team area and kept up to date on members that took birds for their team, and birds for the contest need to be posted by a certain date. It makes keeping score a lot easier for the team and finding out who won the contest. If any bird is posted in another teams area, then that bird counts for that team.
If we still have this problem of guys that can't get back on, that's why we need more than one way to contact a member. It makes it easier for anyone to go through and keep score of the teams.
