Default 100% Free Ice Cream 'Blue Java' Contest!!!

CONTEST HAS ENDED
WINNER BELOW


Proletariatcsp's 100% Free Ice Cream 'Blue Java' Contest for Aug-Sept 2009 HAS OFFICIALLY ENDED.

Winner will be announced Aug.26 pending total count! Look for the winning guess to be highlighted in the running count below. Thank you all for participating in my contest! ~ChrisP.



Today starts my first "Finger Count" Contest. One winner will receive his or her choice of a 1-2ft Ice Cream 'Blue Java' pup with leaves intact or, a 3-4ft corm!

To make things fair and alittle interesting, I have included a few rules that may differ from previous contests. (Please read them before posting).

1. Now I know many of you already have your own Ice Cream banana plants. As you can see from the pictures above these are a taller, medium size banana at 14-15ft of pstem in only its second growing season. Still, if you'd like to give your prize to someone else, I will gladly mail it to their address as long as it is in the US.

2. We are well into the '09 hurricane season here in Florida. And there is a good chance that severe weather could end the fun. So, let's keep our "fingers" crossed and hope we see a good show of hands!

3. I will give away an Ice Cream pup, either 1-2ft w/leaves, or a 3-4ft corm. It's your choice at no cost to you, and I will pay for all S/H within the US.

4. The contest is open to all members, however, unfortunately due to US regulations of plants I cannot ship outside the US . If any Bananas.org International members participate, you may give your prize to another member if you win.

5. Guess the total finger count.

6. Contest will run until all hands have emerged, at which point, I will announce a winner on this thread, and also notify the winner via IM.

Good Luck Everyone! and please feel free to leave your questions and comments with your posts.

Ok, obvisouly the early count rule is confusing. After looking over the previous contests I believe a simple count of "total fingers" will suffice.

I appologize to Lagniappe and hammer. Your total counts still stand!

Thank you for playing, and good luck.

Alright, fun again. I will go with 242 fingers.
Am I a crazy dreamer on that number or am I?
