2011/12 Season's Free forum competition

Org Ed wins the comp

Guess the number of buttons found throughout the season

Another free weeks trip again as the prize for this year new forum comp. 2011/12 season

We have so far counted over the years for a comp, gold, hammered silver, milled silver, coppers, ancient coins and the results have been fascinating.

This year it is a monster, monster, monster count - buttons

How do you guess the numbers of buttons when loads are usually thrown in the ditch ?

This year I will supply plastic buckets to all Barn leaders to keep in their bus for just those buttons you want to chuck. I will have other separate buckets in each of the full board houses for trash buttons.

I will empty these buckets constantly during the week and add up all the buttons as we so we get a running total on the forum for trash buttons and then another total building up as I do the exports later with buttons guys want to take home.

This will be a wide open guess as there must be thousands of 4 holers on their own.


This will be a lot more work for me but it will be fascinating to see just how many pesky buttons we dig in a season.


Start sending me you guesses by e-mail now

Closing date for guesses was 30th Aug 2011

Final total 18,890 Updated 30th July 2012
