    Ball-Athon Segment 3 Lume (Speed Round)

    OK we're back from the Holidays and we hope everyone had a good time and is ready for some Ball-Athon fun. The Lume contest has changed this year! This is a speed round so we have a lower question count. For this round we have 16 questions broken into the two groups. Some questions have two answers so you must have both to get the question correct for those it is indicated on. As in the other rounds you will have 48 hours to submit your answers to me via PM (samanator). Segment 4 will kick off immediately after this round on Friday night. Good Luck.

    Please see rules here: Ball-Athon 2012-2013 segment dates and Rules


    Here is the material for this segment:

    As a note for question 7 please use the Streamliner photo on Ballwatch.com. If you have submitted already I have accepted your answer and will continue to accept that answer for the picture given and accept the answer for that picture of the corrected one. If you wish to see if you get the change right you can PM me the other answer during the normal contest period.

    Sorry for the mix up.

    Re: Ball-Athon Segment 3 Lume (Speed Round) - Answers and Results

    OK for those who are competing or just playing at home here are the answers:

    1. Engineer Hydrocarbon Magnate (We accepted anything that has the word Magnate in it)
    2. A. could be several watches the most common answer that linked to B was TM Racer B. Fireman Racer (I think Ohio was second place for A)
    3. A. Ceramic XV B. Ceramic Midsize
    4. 120 and Eternity
    5. Officer
    6. Fireman Storm Chaser B. EMII Freefall
    7. We found a Streamliner (see pictures below) that has lume like the 21st Century (So we accepted that), For the corrected photo from Ballwatches.com 60 seconds II was the answer.





    8. Fireman Night Train 1st Gen, Previous decade
    9. Went from Single color green to tri color (Green, Red, Yellow) (We accepted knowing that some of the markers changed colors from all green)
    10. Legend
    11. EHC Spacemaster X-Lume (Glow)
    12. Phosphors is what actually glows in the tube
    13. MB Microtec
    14. T
    15. Orbital and Standard Space master, but second part was the trick, Ball only states the tubes on the dial and hands for the Orbital, they missed the two in the pushers in the count so the difference is 3 not 1. A few got this.
    16. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC)

    So the placing for this round is as follows:

    1st Dsaat
    2nd Citizen V
    3rd bg002h
    4th Balldy
    5th djy74


    Current unofficial standings after 3 rounds are as follows (want to recheck after we post incase there was an error):

    1st Citizen V 16
    2nd bg002h 12
    2nd Dsaat 12
    4th Balldy 11
    5th Djy74 8
    6th Lvt 2
    7th Oklahoma 0
    7th Ddc1974 0

    I'll note that this is the second round that 1 point was missed for 6th place if some one just submitted an answer sheet with one answer. Good Luck in Round 4.

    Ah tricky! Topper's tube count apparently included them or else I would have definitely missed that.
