Its time to get the April contest rolling, and I figured what better way to bring the spring season in then to guess how much liquid precipitation will fall on the summit during the month of April. This should be a pretty straight forward contest, so lets get down the details shall we...

1. One submission per forum name
2. No duplicates, so the first to guess the number, owns the number for the month
3. If no one guess the correct amount, the person closest to the guess is considered the winner
4. The F6 report for April is the official source of the precipitation
5. Anyone can enter into the contest, including those that work on the summit
6. Any attempt to add precipitation to the summit, either by ringing out a moist sweatshirt, dumping liquid into the can from a water bottle, etc etc etc.
7. All entries need to be entered by March 31st, at 11:59:59 PM
8. And lastly, have fun!

Good luck everyone :)

Through the first 6 days of the month, .52 inches of precipitation has fallen on the summit. So far, everyone is still in the running for this month. Looks like a wet couple of days ahead on the summit, so the total should go up quiet nicely over the next 2 or so days.

Through the first 2 weeks of the month, there has been 2.5" of liquid precipitation that has fallen on the summit. With everyone's high guesses, everyone is still in the running.

Melted precipitation has accumulated quickly on the summit. We now sit at 4.86" with 13 days to go. Still anyone's game!

A lot and I mean A LOT of precip has fallen on the summit the last few days. The monthly total now stands at 6.39" of precip. Right now, I would be win the month as I am the closest to the total amount. Still got a few days left, and I don't see myself holding on!

6.00 - moa57
6.25 - kathyc

More has fallen on the summit, bringing the monthly total to 6.85 inches!

6.00 - moa57

6.75 - whitemtnvisitor
7.25 - snow miser
7.55 - sdways01

The race is really getting thick now. If the month ended with no further precipitation falling, whitemtnvisitor would reign supreme for the month. If we get more than 7.01" for the month, snow miser will take the month. And looking out further, if 7.41" fall on the summit, sdways01 will take the victory this month!

The last day of the month could push the monthly total over 7.41" of precip. We are currently sitting at 6.95" of precipitation. Depending on how much rain falls on the summit, one of the three remaining contestants will score the big victory for the month!

And the final drop of rain has been accounted for, for the month of April. 7.18" of precipitation has fallen on the summit, bringing an end to another exciting contest. The 7.18" of precip, brought the monthly victory to Snow Miser! Congratulations on a well deserved victory this month! Now, let the sunshine on the summit!!!

whitemtnvisitor, at first I thought you won because you were closest without going over. Then I read rule 3 again. Anyway, thank you! :) And it's nice that these contests are continuing, despite who the winners are. Thanks tdb1977!

I'll keep the contests going until I get no guesses at all. Until then, I'll come up with something from the F6 report monthly. I'm glad that you all are still having fun with them!
