Hello everybody, I did my guess before the end of the "Chicken Little Competition"... maybe a little too early to catch the correct date of re-entry.
Anyway, I've noticed that your prediction, Mineo, seems to be optimistic towards the date of re-entry. I think that, close to that date, sat's height will decrease much faster than you've predicted thus the re-entry could be sooner than April 9th.
I will be pleased to share my prediction with anybody is interested.

Thanks, Mineo. Your work is interesting.
If my memory is correct, the prediction shared at the AMSAT Symposium is for April 2012. Your results agree!
