COMPETITION: Guess the Date of the 30,000th Post

Postby Son of a Beach » Thu 22 Oct, 2009 8:09 am

Our latest competition, due to popular demand, and because Kellys Basecamp are eager to give the members of this site an opportunity to win a great prize is now open. :-)

Yes, that's right. Kellys Basecamp is giving away an Osprey Talon 11 to the winner of this competition!

To win, you merely need to guess the date that our 30,000th post will be submitted to the forums.

To enter this competition, simply send an email to: post30000@bushwalk.com including:
  • your forums name
  • the date that you think the 30,000th post will be submitted to the forums

Please do not include any other information in the email message. So the body of the email you send should look similar to this (except with your own forums name and your own guess):
Brass Monkey
1st October 2009


In order to help you out, here's a couple of vague figures to get you thinking:
  • The 20,000th post occurred on the 12th of July 2009.
  • The current number of posts is well over 27,000.

Note that this competition will remain open until the 30,000th post is submitted. During that time, the total post count has been removed from the statistics section on the index page. Anyone who is found (or suspected) to be attempting to determine the current post count by illegitimate means or by means against the spirit of the competition will be disqualified.

Only one entry per person is permitted. Any subsequent entries will be ignored (only the first entry per person will be accepted).

Today is the day, and this is the post that turned out to be post number 30,000.

Congratulations to forum member 'Phil' for correctly guessing the 10th of December. Phil, you've won an Osprey Talon 11 thanks to Kelly's Basecamp! Arrangements will be made to have your prize delivered as soon as possible.

Thanks to everyone who entered the competition. Guesses ranged from 13th October to 27th January. :-)

(The forums index page has now had the post and topic counts returned to normal at the bottom of the page.)

Yeah, thanks ILUVSWTAS!

A tiny bit of strategy and the rest a big fat guess and I get myself a handy little prize :D

The bag looks great; I do a lot or riding and running to and from work and the small bag that I use at the moment is a shocker so this will be a fantastic upgrade!

Thanks to Kellys Base Camp for the donation of the prize!

Hopefully it arrives before Christmas and I can put it under the tree :lol:
