    Default First day of Snow Contest

    It is time to start thinking about snow. Well, we have plenty of time to think about summer still. But, one must be prepared for snow. Therefore, this is the kickoff post for the 2nd Annual Fall Pick the Day of First Snow on the Summit Contest.

    The rules are:

    Select the day when the daily F6 report shows 2.0" or more of snow for that date.

    There can only be one entry for a day. Whoever gets their post in first has that date.

    If your date has past and there has not been 2.0" or more of snow, you are out - in the cold.

    You may only enter once.

    If you work for a company that alters the weather, makes snow over 6,000 feet, or can move mountains to be under snow clouds - you are not allowed to enter.

    The winner gets to make a huge snowman at the base of Tuckerman Headwall by themselves.

    For reference, here are the results from the 1st Annual Contest:

    Status update time:

    9/23 Charlie
    9/26 rockin rex
    9/27 CHRIS
    9/30 Snow Miser
    10/1 TrishandAlex
    10/2 whitemtnvisitor

    10/13 mtruman & Rich - Winners

    10/15 dvienneau
    10/18 KathyC
    10/19 Patrad Fischroy

    Let the best snowman or woman win.

    I don't like huge snowmen so, if I win I'll be making a normal size snowman.

    Bob,

    Rule 5 is absolutely required. It would not be fair to have an inside track and advantage over the rest of us. We all need to be on a level playing field as we pointedly deal with higher subjects. We all do have lofty goals here.

    The original rules are re-posted here with numbers. Rule #5 is important - we do not want anyone to have a fair advantage.

    Does that mean I may not be able to enter next time?

    It depends on which part of rule #5 applies to you and what the contest topic is.

    I don't work for a company that does that. My snow making, mountain moving machine is home made so I was still in. Until today, I couldn't get the final part I needed because of the holiday. Maybe next year.
