    Default ObsCast Contest?

    Since I'm a new member to the Mt Washington Observatory, I thought I'd poke around the website to places I wasn't able to go before.
    Sort of "Boldly go where no one has gone before" except if you're already a member.

    I ended up watching all the 2010 ObsCast this afternoon and wondered: Shouldn't there be some sort of Monthly ObsCast contest?
    Funniest
    Most educational
    Etc

    Throwing it out there to the forum. Has this been done before? Should it be done? What do you think?

    Karen,

    Welcome to the group. The contests we have done so far have had a definite way of deciding the winner - max temp, first day with more than 2 inches of snow, etc. How would this be judged?

    Hi Brad -
    I was kind of throwing it out there to the forum to get some feedback. I could come up with a definite way to judging the ObsCast but, there doesn't seem to be much interest in it.

    Maybe everyone is waiting to see when the Cog train will appear.

    the obscast is only made by the people that work at the OBS so i dont get how the could be a contest on it
