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 minimum.

Thanks, will do what little I can on that request ... got an e-mail that I tried to answer but don't think it went through, but I have no problem with the request for a late entry. -- Roger Smith

Thanks for weighing in on the late entry.

There's something about using a mailing list in the BCC field that caused problems for people to reply.
