500 Bucks in Prizes !

Recommended Posts

Time for another contest. Not just another contest, but a contest with prizes worth a total of $500 US ! This is in recognition of Hugh's fifth year on this board using his "real" name (after being banned using his old "real" name). :closemouth:

 

Anyway, this time, the contest will favo(u)r those who are literate; sorry for some of you.

This contest is a crossword puzzle. It is made up of English and Thai words. The Thai words are few and are ones that anybody who has visited the LOS more than once and/or is a regular reader here should know these Thai words. Many of the words relate to sex, Thai nightlife, and/or board member's names/characteristics/relationships. So, those who are depraved, spiritually challenged, confirmed reprobates and have been on the board for a little while will have a slight advantage.

 

I'm starting the contest by posting the blank grid which needs to be completed. Also, to start, I am only posting the clues for the top half of the puzzle. This will give those who don't see this for a few days to catch up.

The second set of clues (for the bottom half of the puzzle) will be posted at 0700 hours, Bangkok time, Tuesday, July 14.

I suggest that contestants print out this message, word clues, and puzzle grid and keep them handy for reference and to work on. (Just "right-click" on the puzzle and save and print.)

When a contestant feels that he/she has a valid, completed puzzle, the contestant must submit answers via email to me: hughhoy@hotmail.com Answers should be submitted in column form; that is, first list the words "across" and then the words "down" as shown below.

 

Across:

1. days

7.slight

10. week

11. clue

 

Down:

1. time

5. print

7. puzzle

 

 

These are the prizes:1. New in-the-box Canon Powershot SD1200IS 10MP Camera

2. Seagate 500 GB portable hard drive; perfect for you "on the go" guys/gals? who have more vide/pics, stories to hide...er, uh store and/or take with you.

3. Sandisk 8 GB thumb drive.

4. Bottle of JW Black (1 Ltr.)

5. A 500 baht note.

6. A 500 baht note.

The first contestant to submit a correct response can choose his/her prize from those listed above. Second place winner gets choice of remaining prizes. Third place winner and fourth, fifth, and sixth place winners continue to choose in order from still-available prizes.

 

Here is the grid:

7. Types of grasslands

8. A dancer lacking in the "back side" department has __ ___ (2 words)

14. Famous canine

 

 

Any questions should be posted here. Those sent to my email will be ignored; this is to make sure there is a level playing field for all who are interested.

 

And, as per most contests, the ruling of the judge(s) is final. (That's me.)

 

GO FOR IT !
