In an effort to keep us tractor nuts, entertained, amused, and having some fun, while we wait for spring, we've come
up with a little contest. We've parked a wreck of a junker GT carcass out on a trout pond.

The contest is simple.

Pick the date and time, that the steering wheel goes below surface water level, and you win.

George (NUTNDUN) is offering up a prize package from GTT.(he'll be along to announce that)

This contest is open to site supporters, so if you've been thinking about becoming one, maybe now is the time.

 

Here's how it works.

 

Head over to the contest thread in the Site Supporter forum.
Post your pick. Date and hour (EST). IE: March 10th, 3pm.
Duplicate entries not allowed. 1st come first served.
Entries must be made before groundhog day, Feb.2nd.
One entry per Site Supporter member.
A surveillance camera taking date/time stamped photos will verify the event.
Closest one to actual time wins.

 

That's it, it's that simple.

 

Here's some tips to help you with your entry.

It's located at approximately 45.4 Lat, 80.1 Lon.
In 2012 it fell through on March 20th at noon. That
year we had 18" of ice on the 20th of Feb.
Last year, 2013 it went through on April 17th at 1pm.
On Jan 11th 2013 there was 10" of ice.
Today I pulled the tractor out on to 18" of ice.

 

Good luck.

 

I'm sure some are thinking that this might be a waste of a good GT. Believe me, it's far from good.
Frame is broken, transaxle is shot, and the rest is pretty much beyond repair. It's been degreased, had
the fluids drained, and any useful parts removed. It had a good life, and now will make a good
hiding spot for the trout, as well as entertain us.

Here are some pictures from the past 2 years.

Ok, lets get those entries in, over in the Site Supporter Forum.

Thanks Will!  The last 2 years we have had a good time with this, especially as spring draws near.

Just giving this a bump, in case anyone missed this over the New Years

holiday.

 

So far, we've got 39 entries. There's still lots of time, before the cut off

date of Ground Hog Day, but don't wait too long and miss the good

time slots.
