View Full Version : First Cog 2012 contest

05-04-2012, 09:50 AM
We need to keep these contest going that Brad loved so much. So here is this years contest. Assuming that MWO can keep the archives going.

Guess the date when we will see the first cog in the North web camera archive images going either up or down.

Remember the images are every 15 minutes and we could miss all of them on a specific date.


1. We must see a part of the cog in the image. Smoke is not sufficient.

2. Entries can be made starting now.

3. All entries must be made and dated by this forum to be no later than 11:59 PM on Sunday, May 13th.

4. Employees of the Cog company are not allowed to win. They may enter if they wish.

5. If a date has been selected by more than one person, only the first entry will be valid.

6. Once a guessed date has passed, that entry is no longer valid.

7. If the actual date is not guessed, then the person who guesses the next calendar date is the winner.

8. The winner will receive a hearty round of applause from all participants and lurkers.

The Observer Comments say that the Cog made it first two visits to the summit already. But it doesn't say when.

Based on how the weather is being lately I'm going with May 17.

Not that I have the image to include... but North view webcam has a cog in the shot at 8:30am (May 16th). Just thought it would be interesting to post that it was there.
