Default Summer Contest; Ends Sept 30th

Revised contest

Even I will not know the outcome till diving season is over. You will have till June 30th to place your guess.

RULES

1. ONE GUESS ONLY

2. Entries are open from now until June 30 at Midnight Pacific time.

3. You have to have been member for at least 30 days on June 30th to win.

4. In the event of a tie (One over and one under) The one that is under will win the prize.

Guess will be how many grams of gold I find this summer. Contest ends Sept 30, no matter if I can dive after that or not. Whoever is closest to the total grams of gold found on that date is the winner.

First Prize: 5.00 in silver coins, face value. Nice and black, Just as found.

Second runner up: 2.00 in silver coins, face value

Third - Fifth runner up: 50˘ in silver coins, face value


Summer has started. I have found two gold rings so far. 3.50 grams if I remember right combined. If I am hired to find and return a ring, I will NOT weigh it. That ring will not count to my total. If I find class rings to return later, that will be added. Weight will include all stones, teeth, and other metals incorporated in the rings found. (found two sets of teeth last year)

Last summer: TOTAL 186.96 GRAMS A pretty good summer.



Good luck to all. I will post my gold BUT not the grams from now until after June 30th. Then I will keep a running total on this thread. I need to get out and find more black silver coins. I have 20˘ at this time.

I understand you are new and welcome. Unfortunately you won't be a member for 30 days by the end of June as per the rules.

Welcome and I hope you stay and join more contests as there are more coming.
