Enter FOTMD's 10th Anniversary
Pickled Dulcimer CONTEST!!
FOTMD is 10 years old!
It's hard to believe, but Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer site was born on July 29, 2009... a whole DECADE ago!!
In honor of the fast approaching day of FOTMD's 10 th anniversary , July 29 2019...
All members are invited to participate in
FOTMD's 10th birthday Pickled Dulcimer Contest !
Please READ the rules and conditions below carefully BEFORE entering....
Make your GUESS for the number of pickled dulcimers in the giant pickle jar !!!
--> Please note that the picture above is merely symbolic - so it's no use at all trying to count the dulcimers in the picture.
I will give you a hint though- the answer is a random number I will pick that is more than 10 and less than 500 . (thus, it could be any number from 11 to 499) You can make only ONE guess. And it's perfectly ok if two or more people guess the same number, though that might produce tied winners. I've already told one non-participating FOTMD moderator the secret winning number , for safe keeping. ...and don't try bribing them for the answer! lol!
Everyone gets to make just ONE guess at the number. Post your guess in this thread . Just ONE guess per member, and don't change your number guess after you make it please. On August 1st, I will close the contest , tabulate the closest guesses, and announce the five winners.
IMPORTANT NOTE on Shipping costs: Shipping within the U.S. will be free to winners . If a winner is located outside of the U.S. they must agree to pay any shipping costs that wind up being over $5US to mail their prizes to them. If you are not willing to help pay for international shipping, please do not enter the contest.
FIVE chances to win a prize!
to the secret winning number will receiv e prizes! Remember, the winning number is somewhere between 11 and 499. The 5 closest guesses win- higher, lower, or exact. In case of a TIE for 4th or 5th place, I will flip a coin to determine the winner...OR in the case of a 2 item prize, I may split the two prizes between the tied winners.
The following prizes will awarded to the closest guesses:
