Winter '15 / '16 - Snowfall Forecast Contests
17th Annual 'Regular Season'
No FINAL standings
Too few storms (2)

The two-thirds rule; forecasters are eligible for ranking in the final standings if they entered at least two-thirds of all storm contests. With only two contest-worthy storms this season ... those forecasters with one entry only would have been ineligible.

In the interest of fairness;
Three storms seems like the bare minimum

That was a great forecast and was close. I congradulate pjc368 for the fantastic job the person did.

As far as my forecast goes... BGR station killed my sum squared. Was fun.. hope to do it again soon.
