Default New contest 7.13.08

I just posted my luck in getting 2 flower buds to arrive simultaneously on my Dwarf Orinoco and my Ice Cream. I would like to share my good fortune with possibly 2 other members on this forum. It's Official! - Bananas.org

1st). I will provide a pup to the member who guesses correctly the number of fruits to set on the Dw Orinoco.



2nd). I will provide a pup to the member who guesses correctly the number of fruits to set on the Ice cream.



If there is no one who guesses exactly the number of bananas on any/either plant, I will award the prize to the next closest guessing member, without going over.


The winners will get to choose from the pups that I have available at the time of final banana count. The first plant that stops producing fruit, and the winner for that plant, will choose their pup first. Bananas will not need to be fully ripe to make my final count.

Pups will be shipped free within the Continental USA. I will ship elsewhere, but will only cover the amount of shipping to the farthest point within the USA. This should make it more fair for our non-USA members to participate. Only 1 guess per member. Members can guess on both plants and have the chance to win 2 pups.

I will update the list at least once each week. Thanks for playing!

Jeff
