Default CTCurt's "Bucket-o-cash" Contest***Updated***

And no, this is no April fools joke.(That was a good one Rudy) I will be starting my contest on 5/1. Will explain all the details on that date. Been working on this for awhile. Stay tuned....Curt

Thanks for being so patient my friends. So I was trying to come up with an idea for a contest last spring. After seeing how many people save their coins in large jars, I thought of a new twist. I had a 6 gal drywall bucket sitting in the corner of my office. Had some wadded up 1 dollar bills in my pocket. So I thought, what if I save all the 1 dollar bills in my possesion for 1 year, how many would I have. And so it started(May 1st, 2011) I have put every dollar (single) that I had, into the bucket. My wife Kelly and I have counted it all,(that took awhile). Even she didn't know I was doing this as I hid the bucket in my office. The prize is a crisp 50 dollar bill. I figure I owe many of you at least that much for the vast knowledge you have given me. The object is to guess how many dollars are in there. Everyone gets 1 guess per day. (And yes, you can start guessing now, as it's all been counted) The first correct guess posted, will win. If no one guesses the exact number by 12:00 noon on 5/14/2012, the person closest, without going over, will win. Good luck everyone. (I considered giving the weight of the bucket, but you guys are way too smart)

So you announce a contest but no info now we have to wait a month?
I am frustrated and confused.

Sorry Digger, I can't explain why until May 1st. I probably should've waited until closer to that date. For that I apologize, but hope you'll all participate and understand. Figured we all need something to look forward to.....Curt
