Advent Competition 2008
« on: November 30, 2008, 12:38:18 PM »
Yes it's back! but (fortunately) with a difference. Last years advent competition pushed many people over the edge so I've decided to change concept, (maybe one or two of you will still end up in a padded cell), let me know what you think.

The Competition (Please read carefully)
Every day for the first 24 days in December a Question or Letter will be placed on the GPWizard advent calendar (navigation at the top of the page). Answers to the questions also represent a letter. i.e Answer = Jensen Button then the letter for the day will be either 'J' or 'B'. This will be clearly indicated on the day.

The aim is to collect 24 individual letters and rearrange them into a Christmas sentence. This year the sentence will not be an obvious one.

Once you have the complete sentence you will need to either PM or Email me with your answer. It is in your interest not to post your answer on the site as members who have not been following the competition will all know your answer.

I will only accept answers received on 24th December.

If more than one correct entry is received then the winner will be chosen at random. It would not be fair to accept the first answer due to worldwide members time zones.

If you miss a question or letter, then you can still try and complete the sentence, it will just be a little harder for you.

Any questions or comments? Please post them below for all to see.

The Prize
A picture of World Champion Sir Jack Brabham - hand signed by Sir Jack Brabham himself.



Limited to just 500 copies worldwide. This superb print depicts triple World Champion Sir Jack Brabham in his 1966 Championship winning Brabham Repco. The print has been hand signed by Sir Jack Brabham. Includes a photo of Sir Jack signing. A2 in size (approx 23.5" x 16.5").


The Rules
One Question or letter will be placed on the advent calendar per day.
Answers to each Question will represent a letter i.e if the answer is Jensen Button then the letter for the day will be either 'J' or 'B' as indicated on the day.
The completed Christmas sentence must be PM or Emailed to me on 24th December - all  submissions before or after this date will be dismissed.
If more than one correct entry is received then the winner will be chosen at random.

Good Luck!

Great prize, Wizzo! You are far too good to us!

And thank you for the format change. I'm still getting over last year's competition, too! :crazy:

Two days in and my sanity is still intact.  I prefer this so much to last year's torture.

Don't worry if you miss a few, you can probably still work it out. Plus I will have a bonus letter day where you can ask for a letter that you missed.  :D
