  • Fourth Annual "Kenai King Kontest"

    The "KKK" is back for 2011!

    OK... the Kenai River sonar crew is now busily preparing for 2011 and officially starts counting ER kings in about two weeks. Anyone else getting excited about the upcoming season? Things will be a little different this year as ADFG will not be posting daily sonar counts for Kenai kings on their website or the local "fish count" phone line. An "official" daily estimate will be made but not disseminated in the usual fashion. The public will be periodically apprised of the run's progress based on several indices of run strength at regular intervals. That said, I have been assured an inaugural number will be issued for May 16, but it may come a few days later than we've been accustomed to in the past. Decision day may come a bit late, but the show WILL go on!

    I started this little game for fun three years ago, and it has morphed into something a little bigger and better at every step of the way thanks to the participation and generosity of many board members. Last year's prize list was sweetened with some VERY generous donations, top prize being a charter donated by Muttley Crew. This contest is 100 percent free to registered board members. All you have to do is submit your educated predictions. So join in the fun!

    Thanks in advance to those that plan to donate prizes for 2011. Once again, I am going to ask all prize donors to specify whether the prize they will be giving away will go to first place, second place, or third place. That way even a prize-donor has a legitimate shot at winning something.

    Have fun.... may the best guess win.... AND....

    LET THERE BE KINGS!


    2011 Rules:

    1) Reply to this thread by 11:59 PM on May 15 with your guess as to what the first day's (May 16) Kenai River early run sonar estimate will be.

    2) You must also include a tie-breaking guess at what the eighth day's (May 23) sonar estimate will be.

    3) Winning entry will be the guess closest to the May 16 sonar estimate without going over.

    4) In the event of identical "winning" entries for May 16, there will be a week of added suspense. The winning tie-breaking entry will be the guess closest to the May 23 sonar estimate without going over.

    5) In the event of identical "tie-breaking" May 23 entries, the entrant who first posted them shall be declared the winner.

    6) The second closest May 16 guess without going over shall determine the second place winner. (The loser of a tied first place guess is NOT a second place prize-winner). The May 23 guess shall settle a possible tie on May 16 for second place. In case of another tie on May 23, the closest tie-breaking guess posted first on this thread shall be the winner.

    7) Third place shall be determined in similar fashion.

                          Thanks Doc and admin for getting this going again.It sucks the sonar counts won't be available to the public though.Is that subject to change or just "that's the way it is this year " ?

                            I wonder if it has any thing to do with the fact that they admitted they had problems with the sonar????? By not posting numbers are they covering their back door???????

                            I would think even if it is not even 70 percent accurate some indication is better then none at all.
