. Lets have some fun here folks. I already have by putting the prizes together. .

5 years yesterday I registered. I lurked for a while before I signed up. It's been well worth the effort from my end to join. I have had some good fun and made friends with lots of good folk. Lost a few as well. . Won a football bet with another member where the winner got a Supporter badge, and never let it slide. The 1st time I played jbucks GTP, I won! I still miss a round every now and then. . Enjoy Secret Santa and hope it continues after this years mess. Playing 20 Q's for over a 1000 pages, with keith12, brings a smile to my face from all the fun that went on there and continues today. I started "The Loonie Bin" thread that still sees some action and compliments. But.........my favorite haunt here has to be Spruetts Jukebox. The regulars there all became close friends, so as long as I log in, I'll be posting there to keep it active. Besides, I have to admit, coins and tunes are a great pair, but forced to chose, tunes win.

What am I up to? Should be pretty straight forward and "loonie luck" will be involved.

Standard rules apply. 50 or more posts. Members are welcome regardless of location.

The contest is to guess the weight of my binder full of loonies. This includes an example of every $1 Canadian "circulation" coin dated 1967 to present and then some. . Plus the 20 pocket 2X2 pages, plus the 2X2's and the staples and the binder. Guess must be in grams. Like I said, it's basically a crap shoot. Over or under does not matter, closest wins, but must be within 70 grams, the weight of 10 loons, to open up the contest. Then all 3 places will be set. No guess within the range, round 2 begins with some loonie hints.

Guess what.....all the prizes are loonies of coarse. 1st, 2nd and 3rd all share the 1st 10 coins

92 Parliament
94 War Memorial
95 Peacekeepers
04 Olympics
06 Olympics
10 Olympics
10 Navy
12 Grey Cup
16 Womens Right to Vote
16 Olympics "Lucky Loonie"

3rd gets a 93 and 06 proof, 2nd gets a 93, 04, 08 proof, 1st gets the big win.....93, 01, 02, 04 proofs and a full 2000W Uncirculated set with the NII $2, $1 and 25 cent coins with the W mint mark.

All coins are fresh from a roll or still in mint pliofilm. These sets are nice, and I wish I had of made one to keep.

This contest was supposed to be for 1000 post, but I'm close enough, and 5 years pushed me to start now. Those sets need a new home. So lets have a good turn out. It's sort of like planning your own party and inviting ALL your friends. Enjoy folks.

Let say 8 pm Tuesday June 7 is the deadline. Spread the word.

Good luck.

Easy Don, the variables are crazy here. Glad you're here, but how many pages and empty pockets abound. Besides, you probably have them all already. .

One thing I've learned in 5 years is.....John1 loves his contests. .

I'll get a list going. Thanks folks.

Fun idea for a contest! I'm gonna pick a weight of 1968 g, in honor of the year of the formation of Rush. Any bonus points for guessing Canadian-themed numbers?
