What I meant was something new, though I'd rather see the Jaycoke again anyway.

Yup... 3 new ones, built in secret. And, to add a little vice into the launch matrix, I am going to create a new contest out of it. Winner receives a $25 gift certificate to Public Missiles.

1. Entry via personal email, PM, or sealed envelope. (no public, mailing list or thread guesses.) One guess per person.

2. The first person to correctly guess (a) what each of these are upscales (downscales) of, (b) what color each of them are, and (c) whether each of them are or are not a Jayhawk.

3. Contest ends at the big unveiling on the morning of the first day (Saturday) of the re-scheduled ECOF. (In the event of a tie, first entry received shall win. If there are no winning entries, the certificate will be donated to the ECOF raffle.)

Due to a certain website not opening on my phone's browser, my entry will be delayed until later in the day - I think I got this...

Two quick things...

(a) Whenever ECOF is, I'm still gonna honor the "guess the rocket" contest mentioned in post #15. So far, zero entries. Therefore, anyone can win just by making a guess. No penalty for incorrect guesses.

(b) Trophies for Kelly's Challenge are finished. Due to a generous donation by Jay, we have made some upgrades - from medals to trophies, and the quality of the trophies - for all awards. Since ECOF is delayed somewhat, still time to cobble something together and join the fun. Rules are in Post #1.

Oooooh, oooooh, oooooh. We have had our first entry in "Guess the Rockets". Out of a possible 9 points, he has 2.5. (Still possible to beat that, but he currently holds first place.)
