The 2012 StridingEdge.net Christmas Quiz
At last, it's here - the eagerly awaited 2012
Christmas Quiz. This year is even bigger and better than ever with a fantastic
prize of a holiday cottage for an off-peak week (i.e. outside the school
holidays) in Ambleside. This prize is worth up to £500.
The Rookery is a small development of three self-catering holiday
cottages in Ambleside just yards from the village centre with all mod cons
(including Wi-Fi so you can keep up to date with StridingEdge.net!) and of course
handy for the fells.
The competition is now closed, there are over 50
answers with the correct answers so it is down to the tie-breaker! The winner
will be announced soon, thanks to everyone who entered, I hope you enjoyed the
festive fun. Special thanks to Martin Roberts for setting the quiz and for the
unenviable task of marking all the answers and to Mark Hatton for providing the
fantastic prize...remember there is a 10% discount if you mention
StridingEdge.net if you book The Rookery in Ambleside.
Congratulations to the
winner Roy Drake who wins a week at The Rookery in Ambleside. Well done to Roy,
it all came down to the tie-breaker and he was a mere 7m away with a special
mention to Ian Hanley who was (and this took a bit of applied Pythagoras to work
out by Martin, it's a good job he has his maths O-Level!) a mere 55cm further
away! A full list of the placings is available
here so you can see how
well you did.
I hope you enjoyed the fun over
Christmas, thanks to everyone who had a go....the normal Guess the Fell will be
resumed once normal family life has been restored. Have a great 2013! Sean
