With the lose of Brad, I thought I would start one of his famous contests for the month of July. This time, you are going to try to guess the lowest low temp on the summit for the month of July. All entries will need to be in by 11:59 PM, June 30th. So, what will be the lowest temperature be recorded on the Daily F6 report for July 2012?

1. All answers must be in whole integers
2. One submission per forum ID
3. There can be no duplicates. If an answer has been taken, the second answerer will be ignored
4. If the proper answer is not selected by anyone, the winner will be the closest guesser whose number is numerically lower than the actual answer. In other words, don't go too far hot or you will be left out in the cold
5. Any attempt to alter the summit temperature is not allowed
6. Bribing the Night Observer is allowed, but that can not influence the temperature readings
7. All guesses must be submitted here on this forum in proper English by the silent stroke of midnight on June 30th
8. The official source of data is the Daily F6 as published on the Observatory's web site. It is the only source that will be considered
9. Employees of any organization with "Washington" in its name will be given special consideration and will be allowed to enter.

May the July games begin! Good luck!

Current lowest team is 45 degrees on the 2nd. So far, Charlie is the closest. But we have plenty of time to go for the month.

tdb, when I hit the Thank You button, I may have hit the report post by accident first.
Sorry.. :rolleyes:

45 degrees on the second was actually the average temp for the day. 40 degrees on the 3rd is the low & Charlie has it right on the money so far.

So, I'm running the contest and I cant even read the darn E6 report. Good figure! :confused:

I think I got it this time. The lowest we have seen now for the month is 39 degrees and that was set last night. Better? :cool:

Well it's past the halfway point & Kathy C has a hold on it right now. Nice pick! It's been really warm & has now cooled a bit, but I think after tonight it may creep back upward for a little longer.
It's been fun to watch!

I'm already working on next month's contest idea. I'm looking over the F6 report to look for ideas and I think I have come up with one. Be on the look out for the August contest in the next day or so. :cool:

37 is currently the low number for the month and KathyC is currently in the lead. Just one more night for the month. Don't forget to check out August's contest!

Marty has the best following, he's adorable. But I could never take him off of his mountain, he's so happy there.

When I was up last week, I left him a couple of bags of food and snacks.
(A big box of goodies for the observers too) I hope they all enjoy.:)
