3rd Annual Ice Classic Contest

Trykflyr_1Trykflyr_1 Posts: 2,500 ✭✭✭✭✭

It’s Spring, or so the calendar says, and the ice will eventually go out on the Tanana River. Or at least I hope it will…been a long azz winter this year. Winner snags a forum fiver. Here’s the boilerplate for the rookies; you Olde Pharttes like me know the gig:

Guess the time the ice will go out as shown on the official clock at https://www.nenanaakiceclassic.com/

12 open slots, each slot covers 5 minutes of the hour, choose one slot only, please, your first pick sticks.
1 - 00-04 7 - 30-34
2 - 05-09 8 - 35-39
3 - 10-14 9 - 40-44
4 - 15-19 10 - 45-49
5 - 20-24 11 - 50-54
6 - 25-29 12 - 55-59

Not concerned about the day or the hour, just the minute.
Open untill filled or April 18, whichever is first. If there are open slots & the ice goes out during that slot time, whoever is closest by number of minutes wins. Ties broken by Yakster’s Lotto Random Number Generator webpage.

    No problem...all good!

  • WylaffWylaff Posts: 5,259 ✭✭✭✭✭

    We're 76 and sunny today and forecasted 37 for tomorrow. I see no reason why 3 thousand miles away wouldn't be the same.
