2014 Solstice Drum Count Winner
updated: Jun 22, 2014, 11:40 AM

By the Dedicated Staff of edhat.com

The Dedicated Staff stood among the crowd for the annual Summer Solstice parade on State Street. The theme is "Games" and the floats ranged from mystical to old-school video games. The Staff enjoyed all the floats of course, but their eyes were glued on those large and small musical instruments. Drums, of course.

In 2012 there were 126 drums. In 2013 there were 102 drums. Now, in 2014 the Dedicated Staff counted... 99 drums. Is there a steady decline in Solstice drumming? Check out the graph below.

On to the winner of this year's contest! Almost every subscriber was pretty close to the general guessing area. Except for one guy who wrote: "There is really only 1 drum in the entire parade and everyone that is drumming is actually using that one and only drum but they are all passing that one drum back and forth really fast." Good one I guess, but we got 99 drums and only one edhatter won.

It's rare, but 2 subscribers guessed 98 drums, which was the closest guess. Subscribers Bipolaresque and Ducky both guessed 98. Since it was a tie, the Dedicated Staff turned to the trusty Edhat Dog Molly to decide who the winner would be. Naturally, she was deep in her mid- morning nap and the only thing that could wake her was a treat. One Dedicated Staff put a treat in each hand, the left for Bipolaresque and the right for Ducky. Whichever treat Molly chose first would be the winner. Molly thought long and hard for solid millisecond before eagerly chomping the left treat. Congratulations Bipolaresque for winning this year's contest!
