Competition 3 Entry Thread

Post by grendel on Mon May 27, 2013 1:49 pm

Please use this topic for guessing only


The Competition

Contestants look at the picture below.

The picture shows an Otzi the Iceman knife.

Contestants must estimate how long the total length of the knife (that is tip of the blade to base of wooden handle)

Entries must be in the form of millimetres.

The prize is the knife shown in the picture.

Multiple guesses are allowed, however read rules 8 and 9 carefully before making multiple guesses.

Any queries please post in the Competition Discussion Topic.




Competition 2

Starts 1st June 2013

Ends 30th June 2013


Rules

1. Competition is free to enter.

2. Any member of the forum may enter.

3. All entries must be posted in this topic within the above dates.

4. Entries must take the format of a length in millimetres.

5. Please read previous guesses before posting yours to avoid duplication. In the event of two people guessing the same length, and it is the winning guess, the member who posted the guess first will be deemed winner.

6. Only one guess per post, if multiple guesses are made in the same post, the post will be ignored.

7. Members may make up to three guesses per week, on separate days.

8. I will announce the winner in this thread. The winner has 14 days after the competition finishes to respond, if nothing is heard from the winner by then the prize will be offered to the runner up.

If you look at the dates I have only entered 3 guesses last week and 2 so far this week, all on different days. Smile
(Baring in mind the competition started on a Saturday)
