Breaking the Tape

This has been the closest race that I have ever seen. It makes for exciting play and I'm really enjoying it. With the new wrinkle of bonus points for the "race within a race," I have to ask a few questions.<br><br>
Basically, it boils down to what will be done in the event of a tie. I doubt very much there will be an actual tie, i.e. an equal number of points among those arriving in Surf City. It could be that 2 (or more!) teams gain enough points to enter Surf City on the same day.<br><br>
1. When will the determination be made that a team has "broken the tape?" The reason I ask is that I fully support you when you say that there is no requirement that scores be speedily posted. There would be such a requirement if the determination was made, say, within a day of the points being acquired (such as how you post the leaderboard).<br><br>
2. If at least 2 teams have enough points to make to Surf City on the same day, will they receive the same amount of bonus points?<br><br>
3. If not, how will the "tie" be resolved? Most total points on that day? Earliest points are posted?<br><br>
I think you see the answers to these questions will dictate race strategy.<br><br>
Thanks for your help and for a great round of the VRAA!<br>

I've thought about that possibility too. I think the most fair way to do it would be the team that ends up with the most official points as of the end of the day the teams reach Surf City if that makes sense.
