FYI - Someone was kind enough to report a duplicate entry to the moderators. Although we'd like to help, it would not be fair to do so. This is a contest - each member should understand the rules as defined by the contest manager.

As I've noted in earlier posts:
To avoid duplicate entries, please search this thread for your guess first.

When viewing this thread, look for the "Search this topic..." box just under the title. Enter your guess without commas, like "2600.00" and with commas, like "2,600.00".

If you find an earlier entry, you can edit your post using the "pencil" icon in the top-right corner of the post.
That's as much help as I can give.

If a member wants to PM someone with a duplicate entry to help them out, feel free to do so.

If we end up with an unnoticed duplicate and it wins, but we were "second", may we request a refund of our entry fee?

Timerunner -

Looks like you and I are joined at the hip for the rest of 2019. I picked 2664.78, but without employing any mathematical sophistication whatsoever. Just a simple WAG after a couple of excellent brews. Good luck to us both! :wink: :beer
