Default Contest for May/June 2008

After risking life and limb to count the fingers on my rickety wooden ladder set atop a sawhorse table, the final count is 206 fingers. One bunch has 108 and other 98. Pictures are in my gallery. So the winner is Bananimal! Please contact me with your info. And just for kicks I'm offering a free pup of your choice providing you pay for shipping to both 51st state and NANAMAN for being the next closest on either side of the winning guess. Thanks to all you banana nuts for playing!

It's that time again! Win one free pup or rihzome of your choice from the list.
Pisang Klotek
Hawaiian Apple
Jamaican Red
Dwarf Cavendish
Unknown possible Manzano
Stuttgart Canna Rihzome



Rules for this contest:
You must be a registered Bananas.org member as of yesterday, 5-20-08 to enter.
One guess per member.
This contest is limited to 200 total guesses.
Closest guess without going over the actual number wins.
No guesses will be accepted after the deadline which is Sunday, June 1 at 12:00 pm PST.
Free shipping to any continental US address. All others will have to pay for the shipping of your choice with no guarantee it will arrive or be alive if and when it gets there.


The contest: guess the total number of fingers/fruits that my two unknown, possible Manzano bunches have combined. No one from the board has seen the bunches yet, except me of course. Good luck and have fun!


ATTN: MODS, please feel free to update this thread as needed. Thanks!

Hey Mitchel,
Can no one guess a number between 121 and 222? Just an observation as I was feeling my way through the numbers and trying to get a "vibe" on which one is the winner!!! LOL If I am allowed to guess, put me down for 174...
Thanks for the contest, was wondering when one show up....
Randy

You can guess any number between 51 and 250. I just didn't complete the list when I posted it. I'll work on it now though and put you down for 174!
