    Default July Low Temperature Contest

    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!
