Once again CH has agreed to sponsor a Kip Litton prediction contest with approximately $5 worth of lottery tickets.
Submit your entry at
Rules are shown below as well as on the website.
Only people who have posted on this thread PRIOR to dukerdog's post on page 164. People who have posted what I deem to be positive things about Kip are not eligible, as I would be worried they are either Kip himself, or a friend of his, and could rig the contest. If you didn't assign a password to a username you used on this thread, you should do that now.
I will set up an entry website where you will submit the username you used for your post, the thread page number of one of your posts, and your predicted time. After you enter make a post on the contest thread on letsrun with your secret word. I do all of this to prevent someone from entering 50 times or from entering with your letsrun username. It's true that someone who posted under 5 different names will get to enter 5 times, but there's only so much I can do.
A predicted time (if the time you submit has already been predicted I will post on this thread that you need to make another prediction)
No show with no explanation from Kip.
No show with an excuse from Kip.
Starts but does not finish.
Finishes but is DQed.
DFL is not a valid entry (although you might be right).
The winner will be:
The person whose predicted time is closest to Kip's chip time (either above or below). In the event of a tie, the faster predicted time will win. Kip's official time will be used even if it is unlikely to be legitimate
If one of the 4 possible DNS/DNF/DQ entries is the actual result(I will judge which category it fits), a random selection from all correct entries will be the winner.
