You and Mark are just about half way apart. 3 weeks to go and it looks indeed like you've got a shot. I would not have guessed that a month ago. :-"

Mike Carey wrote:OK, we had a lot of fun with the 2010 contest and this should be even more interesting considering there's more of the year left, so it will REALLY challenge your guessing skills!

Rules of the Contest:

1) Guess the number of Registered Members as of the end of the year, 12-31-2011.

2) The person closest to the actual number (over or under) is the winner.

3) You may only make one guess, due to the forum hacking episode you can make one guess change.

4) You may not guess closer than 5 numbers on either side of someone else's guess. Let's not crowd each other's fishing turf, LOL.

5) The last guess will be allowed on June 1st, and then we sit back and watch.

I have decided to re-open the guesses for everyone. You can change your guess one time to reflect the new number listed below. In addition, I'll leave this guessing period open until June 1st, at which time we will close the guesses up for the year.


The winner will recieve an as yet to be determined bunch of cool stuff from our Sponsors and WL.com! Minimum value will be $50 in FISHING STUFF.

Good luck with your guesses. If this helps at all, in 2010 we went from around 9,000 to 12,800 members. As of today (March 26)we sit at 13,764.

I just wanted to let everyone know that I've received my package for winning this contest. Mike and the website went above and beyond! I will display the WALAKES.COM swag proudly, and use everything that was sent. It was a great package.

WOW! Look at all the fun I missed. Congrats Yooper!
I just returned this morning from a four month tug boat ride so coming in second is quite a surprise.

Oh man! Just reread the numbers I missed by only 7! I coulda been a contender! LOL Good thing I wasn't here, I coulda come up with seven more members but wouldn't have felt good about it. ;) Looks like a few changes at the site, getting reacquainted. Time to get some ice fishing in before it melts!

Again, Congrats Yooper!
