    SECOND FREE MEMBER SUBSCRIPTION CONTEST, 2012

    * There will be a second contest (following Moose's successful event) to coincide with Christmas, 2012, sponsored by Santa Claus himself.

    * The jolly guy in red has chosen three Red Hot Pawn Members as his worker elves (Sumydid, Great Big Stees and Grampy Bobby).

    * Format changes include elimination of member status as a participation criteria. Both subscribers and non-subscribers may enter the contest
    (Including provisional status, brand new members). We’ll have nearly twelve weeks to for members to post picks (October 8 to Friday, December 21, 2012).
    Prize Winners will be announced Sunday morning, December 23, 2012.

    * The range of available numbers will be from zero (0) to two thousand, four hundred and twenty three (2,423), coincidentally the current chess
    rating of Kaoslos, highest rated patzer on the site User 88066. This gives us a total of 2,424 pick possibilities.

    Note: Just in case some brainy guy or gal decides to employ a forumla such as, 0 + 2423 = 2424 choices / 2 = 1212 (Hmm... December, 2012)
    and concludes 1212 must be the winning number, forget it. This includes Ponderable, Sonhouse and Miklelom. You're, now, on your own. lol

    * Red Hot Pawn Members may submit one (1) number. Earliest date of post determines ownership in the event of duplication.

    .* By the way, anybody thumbs downing the official announcement will be disqualified (Russ' supply is running low).

    * The prize will be a one year renewal or new subscription.... doubled to a seamless “Two Year RHP Subscription" if your lucky pick
    hits the random number nail on its head! That’s not all…

    * There will also be an 'El Cabooso' Booby Prize*** (no pun intended) awarded to the individual whose pick is next closest to the pre-selected
    winning number. *** http://www.cafepress.com/redhotpawn

    * Two of Santa’s trusted and friendly elves, Sumydid and Great Big Stees, will provide administrative support. Each will receive sealed double
    envelopes by 1st Class U S Postal Mail containing a single number, not to be opened until Friday, December 21, 2012.

    * We will need someone to volunteer their services to help monitor posted picks and in order to provide timely updates of those numbers.
    Would anybody interested please let me know by personal message. Volunteer won't have wear any mod hat. Friendly banter and repartee
    are, of course, welcome. My thanks to each of you and best of luck to all! ~elf 3

    Call it "The Doomsday Lottery" (You don't have to be a Mayan to win).

    Reminder:

    * "By the way, anybody thumbs downing the official announcement will be disqualified (Russ' supply is running low)."

    This contest is a friendly community, holiday event. Please regard its parameters as you would any other civilized aspect of Red Hot Pawn. While the subscription offered prizes are firm, the monies set aside for the second place "El Cabooso Prize" reflect an estimated budget of $35.00 toward purchase of merchandise in Russ & Chris' unique site store. Browse awhile. That's what the link's for. In the interest of encouraging a friendly, convivial tone that amount may be diminished to the extent to which negative attitudes result in continued "thumbs downing of the thread". Your prizes. Why run the possibility of hurting your own best interests or that of your friends?

    Let's play ball together. Okay? ~elf3

    the value of the "prizes" is directly tied to the number of thumbs up or down the thread receives???

    Yes, Andy. Number in play dawned on me last week before The Mooses's Contest was over. It'll be mailed to elf 1 and elf 2 this week. Hope you have fun with the thread.

    So are you going to post a running summary of guesses? Good. If so, could you put them in order of low to high? Just make a list from zero to the highest and put the first guesser's name next to the ones that are guessed. of course you don't have to post the ones not yet guessed.

    It would look like this, so far:

    0005 Drewnogal
    0123 CLL53
    0337 Vivify
    1012 Maxwell Smart

    This makes it easy for people who have guessed to find and make sure their guess has been registered.
