    Here we go folks, the first competition to win a copy of a book in 2012. The first one up for offer is : The Greek Myths by Robin and Kathryn Waterfield. The book has been reviewed by OFAH here.

    Entry to the competition is by Survey Monkey and can be found here. Just complete the very simple, multi-choice questions correctly and you may get your mitts on a brand new copy - perfect reference material for any future quizzes I may put up on this subject!!! :laughing4:

    The competition will run until mid-day Sunday 12th February 2012.

    Good luck.​

    My wee 'hint' about Q2 seems to have worked, although there are still those who will not read Wiki properly :) The % correct has risen but it seems that our nautical chums here on Rum Ration are the main culprits who don't really want a copy of this book. Either that or wiki changes when bobbing about on the wet stuff (if any of you still go to sea!) !!! :bs:

    Seafarer1939 - I hope you enjoy the books you say you have. BTW, I suggest you re-read them and try to get the correct answer!!! :slow:

    Just over 24 hours to go in this competition. Still time to have a go and a chance to win an excellent book about Greek Myths - how about this from the start of the review by OFAH -

    If that is not the description of perfect RUM RATION reading material then RR has changed in the past few months! :-D

    Links to competition are in first post on this thread.
     
  10. Done :bow:

    OK folks, here are the results of the first competition of this year. Before you all start going off on 'fix, fix' etc - heard it all before :laughing4:

    The winners are:
    rebbonk
    stokers_plaything
    tarkwa
    Trelawney126
    ToMeToYou



    I have emailed them to ask for their contact details and the books will be sent out in due course.

    The answers, and once again it is a case of RTFQ, are:

    Q1 = Homer

    Q2 = Epeius : the question was who built the wooden horse, NOT who jumped out of it!

    Q3 = Paris

    So congratulation to the 5 winners and look out for the next competition starting in the next day or so when the ARRSE newsletter comes out.
