You pick a city for each day, in which you will have a 25 mile raduis around that city to gain reports. Picks need to be submitted before 15z(9 or 10AM CDT depending on DLST). This is a change from last season. Also, if severe weather is occuring between the time when SPC day 1 reports start(12z) and 15z, you can NOT pick a city within a few miles of those severe storms.

Scoring is like this:

2 point for every significant hail and wind report within 25 miles of your city (read SPC definitions of significant hail/winds on any of their storm reports graphics)
5 points for every tornado report within 25 miles of your city
1 point for every normal hail/wind report within 25 miles of your city

Tornado - 5
Significant Hail/Wind - 2
Normal Hail/Wind - 1

We are going to stick with 2 rounds Round one from now until the end of June, and the 2nd from July 1st-Dec. 31st. Unless you guys want to change it...

Updated rules in the first post. You can now start picking...

I'm going to try and see if Jesse will help support the game with a pinned threat in the main forum, to gain new players....and maybe a prize. Have to see what he says.

Probably will play more this time around. This round always has the best finishes anyways, it's no fun when there's barely any severe wx in the last month of a round.
