    Dates & Times are AEST. To make it interesting, all predictions must be entered by midnight (23:59:59), AEST, 31 Jul 2007. Deleted posts do not count, only actual posts!

    Closest guess to actual post time will win - regardless of whether the guess is earlier or later than the posting time. Winner will have name engraved in Winner's Podium honour roll.

    There is no prize offered at this stage.

    Good luck to all.

    Is that 11 Sep or 9 Nov?

    Hopefully there won't be a repeat of the events that took place towards the end of the last contest.

    If our feathered friend were here, the competition would be over before the closing time for guesses arrived!

    The end, I recall the events occuring the whole way through, however the last few days were the worst.

    We have 2 entries with over 22 days to go before the prediction deadline:shock:

    I hadn't, looked the thread up the other day to see shut off time and date, am waiting til closer to get a time in.

    Are you putting a time in for the date of you keeping a really large time interval, if this is allowed I pick ............. the year of 2007

    This is not allowed. Not mentioned in the terms and conditions but if no time specified with the prediction then I will default the time to 00:01 on the date chosen.

    Hmm, I am quite confident it will be in August 2007. However, given my predictive ability, I don't think it matters what time of day I choose, whatever JohnK decides is as good as any other time.
