Golden Days Rubber Duck Race Contest

I mulled this over in my somewhat addled mind and came up with this idea.  Fairbanks was founded on gold mining and the town's origins are celebrated with a duck race down the Chena River.  There are 8000 rubber duckies dumped into the river at one bridge and float to a second.  Each duck is numbered in either yellow or pink.  First yellow tagged duck is top prize.  See link for details. 

https://www.fairbankschamber.org/rubber-duckie-race

Here's how this'll work:  Pick a number between 1 and 8000.  Whoever's guess is closest to the number on the winning yellow duck gets the a forum fiver from the rest of the gang.  Race happens 7/20 at 3 PM Alaska time; official results are out the 23rd.  I'll use the official results as a determination.  

Anyone in?

    @TBonz...   It's 7 days of party with an 1890's theme.  Things have toned down a bit in today's oh-so-correct society so there's not as much debauchery involved, but it's still a good time.

    I'm waiting until the 19th. Procrastination and strategy. Evil, evil strategy like those a-holes on "The Price Is Right".

    Only 7,987 available numbers left!   "Too late! Too late!", will be the cry when the man with the duckies has passed you by! Any picks posted after 12 noon Alaska time, Saturday, will be disregarded....
