View Full Version : February - Low Temperature contest

This is to announce a LOW TEMPERATURE CONTEST for February.

The rules (there are always rules...)


The guesses are for the lowest temperature at the summit for the month of February, 2011
The source of data to determine the winner is the F6 report for February
Entries can be submitted at any time up to 11:59:59 PM on February 4th, 2011
Entries must be whole numbers. Any factions will be rounded by the Administrative Staff in a manner determined by the staff at the time with an objective of not creating duplicates, if at all possible. If this is not possible, the guesser will be asked to guess again.
Only one entry is allowed per ID on the forum
Duplicate entries will not be allowed
There is no need to guess where the cold is coming from
The winner is the closest guess to the F6 reported results.
Any altering of the data by adding cold or warm air to the instruments is not allowed
If the exact minimum temperature is not guessed, then the closest (over or under), is the winner. This means there could be two winners.
All rulings by the Administrative Staff are arbitrary and final.

I'll guess -13 deg F.

What does the winner get this time?

Thanks,

How terrible of the Admin Staff to not explain the prize for winning. I will have to talk with them as soon as they thaw out.

The winner gets to watch bubbles freeze when the temperature at their house goes down to -35F outside. The Observers did it last night at "their house" on the summit.

I just checked the F6 report and we already have a low temp of -22F. So, several people have been wiped out on this contest already.

Brad
02-10-2011, 05:12 AM
We just hit one more day at -22 F and sdways01 guessed that exactly. We will have to see if it drops any lower. The Conditions page so far for today says no.

We are half way through the month and the low temp is still -22 F.

CHRIS
02-16-2011, 07:39 AM
It will be rising. I can feel it...

Bill O

We are half way through the month and the low temp is still -22 F.

Nothing in the forecast indicates we are going to be getting that cold again this month.

I'm not a big fan on how warm it has been for the month of February, but if it means I might win, I'll suck it up.

One degree to go and the lead will slide into your name. But, last night only got down to my number - minus 19F. So, -22 F still has the lead.

I think I can only go as low as -26.;)

Brad

-17F was it for yesterday. We have a ways to go to move off the leading -22F.

BAXTERCA2
02-24-2011, 07:47 AM
Pretty sure we have a winner at -22

Brad
02-24-2011, 08:02 AM

We only have data through the 23rd and have 5 days left to go. It is too early to throw in the balaclava yet. But, we may have our winner at -22F.

Brad

We have one day left in this contest. The low temp for the month so far is -22F and there is a chance of a change today, but it is slim. So slim, we can not see it. But, officially we can not declare the official winner till the month is officially over. Stay tuned.

Brad

WINNER! You guessed the right number on the frostbitten nose.

It's great that I won, but I think I am going to have to wait a while so I can collect my prize of watching bubbles freeze at my house at -35F like Brad mentioned.
