The contestants must guess the date of the first two (2) inches of snow to fall, during one continuous snow fall, at Bridenbecker Sales & Service, River Road and Route 49, Marcy, NY 13403. The actual date of certification of the two inch total will be determined by a measurement taken by a meteorologist employed by NewsChannel 2.

The second entry drawn will be awarded the Grand Prize. The odds of winning depend on the number of correct entries received.
