    Here is the list of official entries. If I missed someone, please let me know.

    ----- Avg ------- Fastest
    ----- Wind ------ Wind

    • 39.6 MPH - 133 MPH CHRIS
    • 41.0 MPH - 112 MPH Rich
    • 42.0 MPH - 126 MPH mtruman (obviously)
    • 42.5 MPH - 122 MPH Brad
    • 43.1 MPH - 131 MPH averagejoe
    • 43.5 MPH - 135 MPH Charlie
    • 44.1 MPH - 119 MPH billysinc
    • 44.5 MPH - 121 MPH Snow Miser
    • 45.1 MPH - 130 MPH Anna LeBlanc
    • 45.9 MPH - 105 MPH BAXTERCA2
    • 46.0 MPH - 122 MPH MichaelRupkalvis (top speed is not valid since it was already taken)
    • 46.2 MPH - 123 MPH climbered
    • 46.4 MPH - 117 MPH whitemtnvisitor
    • 47.3 MPH - 127 MPH MeridenFF

    • 55.2 MPH - 154 MPH KSearl


    Note 1: The Average Wind Speed can be picked by multiple people
    Note 2: The Fastest Wind Speed must be unique - no duplicates (this is the tie-breaker)

    Michael, pick your top speed again - quickly - and I will update it.

    Looks like the winds are picking up the next few days. Hopefully enough to get the average up about 3.2mph. The current peak speed is just fine

    As of right now Chris "Low-ball" is leading in the contest. The average wind speed is not even in our guessing range yet.

    39.6 MPH for average speed. Chris has it right on the nose. However, we have a few more days and the average should be going up (I hope).

    We are at 39.8 MPH and Chris is still the leader because of convoluted rule #13 in the amended rules. If the correct average speed is not guessed, the next lower guess wins. So, Chris (Mr. Lowball) is in the lead.

    We are down to 39.1 MPH for the average speed and running out of time for the month to end. Chris, may be the winner - but, we will have to get the legal team in here to read the convoluted rules to make sure.

    Crank up the wind machine!
