    BYC is still growing like crazy! People all over the world are recognizing how wonderful it is to raise backyard chickens. Well, when these peeps search the interwebs they often land on BYC. After browsing BYC many then want to become a part of our amazing community and then they signup and join our family.

    In an effort to celebrate with all our new friends we're starting a new contest to guess when we'll hit 230,000 members!



    Be the closest to guess the DATE & HOUR (Eastern Standard Time) when we'll hit 230,000 members and win one of three prizes:

    PRIZES:

    1. The closest guess will receive a FREE 1 Year GFM for themselves or a friend!
    2. The second and third closest guesses will each get a FREE 6 month GFM for themselves or a friend.

    We'll be accepting guesses until the end of day MONDAY 9/30/2013

    How To Enter:
    Simply reply to this thread with your guess. Your reply MUST be in this format: Month/Day/Year Hour... kinda like this:

    1/2/2015 18:00:00
    or
    1/2/2015 6:00 pm

    Rules:
    1. The closest guess to the actual date/hour (either before or after) wins.
    2. You can only enter the contest with ONE GUESS ENTRY!
    3. If you want to lock in a specific day/hour, post it before anybody else.
    4. You can change your guess to a different day/hour IF IT IS NOT TAKEN but if you choose another day you allow someone else to take your previous guess.
    5. You can change your guess as many times as you want until the end of the contest time above!
    6. To change your guess: Edit your guest post before the end of the contest
    7. All guesses must be on the HOUR (i.e., NO MINUTES). If you entered minutes into your guess your guess will be rounded up or down to the closest hour.
    8. Most important: HAVE LOTS OF FUN!


    You can find the current number of BYC members on the BYC homepage (look on the right side column of the homepage).
