2013 Homecoming Contest
« on: October 06, 2013, 03:37:01 PM »

WELCOME HOME HORNBYS for the 2013/14 Season


HEGPS would like to have a bit of fun with everyone, so please play along and tell us when you think Mom and Dad will first land at the nest.

The areas that qualify include the stump, the W.A. cam box, the C.U. cam box, the nest bowl itself, and branches on the nest tree.

There are two categories for the guesses:

1. one eagle (must be an adult eagle) landing or spotted on the nest

2. both Mom and Dad together, somewhere on the nest tree branches or nest areas listed above


To play, please post the DATE of your guess and the TIME OF DAY of your guess for each sighting.


All entrants must have their choice of date and times posted in this forum topic to qualify. If you are not a registered member  of the forum, please register and join the fun.

The winning date and times for each category will be confirmed by HEGPS members, cam  drivers, and recorded video if possible.  HEGPS members can enter this contest but are not eligible for prizes.

One prize will be awarded per category.  Each prize is a large coffee mug of a Hornby Eagles design from our Cafe Press shop (link: http://www.cafepress.com/hornbyeagles


have fun , good luck, every one
