Welcome to My Personal Page
After you make your donation
send me an email (CdrJimparham@hotmail.com) and predict my time.
If you come closest to predicting my time, I double your donation to a charity of your choice and award YOU the fund raising prize which has been a kayak. The kayak is done by gift certificate so if you are out of RI, there will be an equivalent prize for you. The fund raising prize is usually quite good.
Refresher on the drill:
HOW DO YOU PREDICT? I have done 13 swims:
Slowest 2015 94.2
Fastest 2016 71.2
Times for each year are shown below with past prediction winners and the charity each supported.
If you want to get more technical in the prediction see the spread sheet on email sent to you. My times in minutes, a graph of all 13 swims with trend line and standard deviation. Also shown are pics of past winners. Would love to see one of you guys win it. Oh yes if you predict the same as somebody else, highest donor wins. In event donations are the same, whoever has donated and predicted first will be awarded the prize. Good Luck! May the best Predictor win!
