There were two grammar errors in the state test for herpetology in Nebraska. (They used an apostrophe s for plural. ugh.) We had some extra time at the end, so I crossed it out and wrote in what it should have said. Do you think that I might have gotten points off for being an obnoxious grammar nazi like that?
not at all. Grammar is pretty important even if it was on an Amphibians and Reptiles test.

Strath haven here. For nats, probably Sewickley and Bala.

For this event, I dunno, but I'd look at Sewickley, Shady Side, and Bala for the better teams in the state.

I agree on the grammer thing _ those procters are really picky on what you put on the test...and I dont know about you...but our procters are infamous for throwing unexpected curveball tiebreakers... :ugeek:

I'm unsure if it is against the rules to staple a few pages from another guide into my field guide. Any thoughts?

That would probably be considered against the rules. You could copy down the info onto a post it though.

Robotman should know. If they didn't allow them we would've been DQ'd for sure. ;)
