Twenty Questions For Official Tom Merchandise

Postby Moderator on December 2nd, 2010, 10:45 pm

Yup. One Tom Baker Trivia Quiz coming right up.

But first The Rules [and other sundry bits of information]:

1) Contest open to all Members of Tom.

2) Three prizes will be awarded to Three Winners. Winners determined by two factors: most correct answers sumitted to Dirk via a PM, and (in case of a tie) earliest dated PM to Dirk. I will accept more than one PM from you, if you wish to change an answer or two, on reflecton; but will only judge the final PM entry from you.

3) Contest will run for the next two weeks, ending on December 17, 2010. This should get the winners their prizes by Christmas (if local - and we are lucky). But should our winners be futher out, your prize will be sent to you ASAP.

4) Prizes are as follows:

1st Place - The 2011 Tom Baker Calendar
2nd Place - FREE download voucher of remake: "The Boy Who Kicked Pigs" audio
3rd Place - One, personally dedicated, autographed, photo Tom Baker

5) If you are one of our winners, we will need an email address for the "The Boy Who Kicked Pigs," download, and a snail mail address for either one of the other two prizes. This can be provided to us via a PM to Dirk at the end of the contest.

6) All decisions of the judges are final.

Have fun!

And good luck to everyone!

Best,
Dirk :ugeek:

tracy,
That is so nice of you to give us a chance. I was thinking that you and at least one other well known person here probably know all the answers right off the top. I just put in my shots at it after a little looking around ;)
The odds say I have better than 1 in 100 to win something. I just love winning stuff! And the stuff is far better than the "points" I suggested for a different contest :D
Oops, now I bumped the topic up when I should have let it get covered by others....drat, not everybody will get in on it :cry:
Dirk, we love ya man! great idea.

Dear Tracy -

Thank you for being so generous.
________________

Dear Who dat? -

Thank you.

Was hoping people would make their comments here, or thought perhaps they might ask for clarification.

Also, had fingers crossed that no one would actually try to answer the questions here. :?

Very grateful too for you entering. Good luck.

Dear Members of Tom -

When you enter you will receive a PM back from me saying I got your entry.

Dear Members of Tom and Contest Entrants -

Something rather unexpected has happened, I have had a perfect entry submitted ... so according to the rules (if you read between the lines) ... if this happens two more times ... the contest will be officially over, even if we still have days left on the countdown clock, as I can only award perfection three times. :mrgreen:

But until then (if ever), even a less than perfect submission is still very much in the running, so get those answers to me ASAP, as the clock is counting down to the 17th. 8-)

Best,
Dirk :ugeek:

Ow, that one hurts! It was sure to happen and IMHO it will probably happen two more times and end the contest. I just hope it's fast and painless like yanking off a band-aid. There are certainly quite a few friends here Who really know Tom and his works well. They have been a valuable resource on many occasions to help us clear up discussions.
Ta! to Whoever submitted the first perfect entry.

Congratulations to the first winner whomever they may be.

I'm not one to stop hoping though. :)

Good luck everyone!

Dear Members of Tom -

Just two more days until we announce the contest winners, so it is still not too late to PM me. And even though we did have a perfect entry early on, please let me encourage you to submit your list of answers, as even if you should only get ONE answer correct out of the twenty, you would still be in the pot to possibly win a prize. The other side of the coin is, if you don't enter, you have NO chance. So I sincerely hope you who are still on the outside will reconsider, and send in those answers (via a PM) to me, pronto.

Best,
Dirk :ugeek:
