2014 Homecoming Contest
« on: September 18, 2014, 03:14:38 PM »
WELCOME HOME HORNBYS for the 2014 - 2015 Season

As we anxiously await the return of Mom and Dad Hornby from the salmon runs, HEGPS is holding a contest for viewers to enter their best guesses as to when they first will be seen and identified at the nest.  As it did last year, the contest will feature two categories of guesses and winners in each will receive a gift from the Hornby Eagles Cafe Press shop.  Read on for contest rules and details.

There are two categories for the guesses:

1. One adult eagle that is identified by HEGPS as either Mom or Dad landing or spotted on the nest as defined below

2. Both Mom and Dad together on the nest together as defined below.

The 'nest' includes the stump, the W.A. cam box, the C.U. cam box, the nest bowl itself, and branches on the nest tree.  


To play, please post the DATE and the TIME OF DAY of your guess for each sighting.  For example, 1. October 21 at 4:35 pm; 2. October 25 at 9:03 am

All entrants must have their choice of date and time posted in this forum topic to qualify.  Entrants may submit a guess for either one or both of the contest categories.  If you are not a registered member of the forum, please register and join the fun.

The winner of each will be the person who has guessed the date and time closest to the event. The winning date and time for each category will be confirmed by HEGPS members, cam drivers, and recorded video if possible.  HEGPS members may enter this contest but are not eligible for prizes.

One prize will be awarded per category.  Each prize is a coffee mug featuring a Hornby Eagles design from our Cafe Press shop. ( http://www.cafepress.com/hornbyeagles )  New designs will be coming to the shop soon.

The contest thread will be locked on October 5th so get those guesses in quickly.  One guess only for each category please, and check to make sure your guesses haven't already been chosen.


Have fun and good luck to all!!
