Guess the Weight Contest

Can you guess the total weight of this shipment of magazines? Two people will win admission to the Pine Mountain Gold Museum, and a pair of tickets for the train ride, OR a $25 Golden Buddha/MoMoYA gift certificate!

HERE IS THE ANSWER:

THE TOTAL WEIGHT IS 35,570 POUNDS

Chapel Hill  News & Views - 11 skids at 20,907 lbs.

Student & Parent Guide - 6 skids at 11,581 lbs.

Chapel Hill  News & Views Mailing - 2 skids at 3,082 lbs.

We had a great turnout for the contest, with 113 different guesses.

The two closest guesses were:

Cathy Jarriel-Rooks who guessed 34,000 pounds (1570 pounds off)

Thomas Bruno who guessed 33,650 pounds (1,920 pounds off)

On Thursday, a shipment of two of our publications will leave the printer and make its way to Douglasville.

The truck will contain 45,000 copies of Chapel Hill News & Views and 30,500 copies of the Student & Parent Guide, which we have produced in partnership with the Douglas County School System.

To win this contest, you must have the closest guess to the total weight of the shipment, not counting the truck itself.

Closest Guess Wins

Here is what counts in the weight: 

• All 75,500 magazines (45,000 Chapel Hill News & Views and 30,500 Student & Parent Guides)

• 15 Wooden Pallets

• 2 Postal Pallets

• About 6,500 plastic straps that bundle the publications - These are fairly insignificant in terms of weight

• The plastic wrap on 25,452 copies of Chapel Hill News & Views

• The Mailing Label on the 5,960 copies of CHNV that are mailed to Winston and the Fairplay area

• The Chapel Hill News & Views is 120 pages plus a four page cover
