December competition 2020
« on: December 24, 2020, 07:13:05 PM »
It's back....

A year I'd sooner not repeat - but at least we have time for some covid-secure fun before the end of the year  ;D

Same rules as always -
Simply PM me your answers and I will post the amount you have correct, send as many PM's with answers as you like.  To win if you have 10 correct answers we will hold a draw, if no one has 10 then the 1st prize goes to whoever has most.

Please do not post answers in this thread.

Last entry is 31st December 2020, after which I will post the prize (s) to the winner (s).

Good luck :)

For hints see the other threads -

Great! Thanks once again Andy! And this year for some reason I'm at home the whole Christmas period and not rushing around seeing relatives, so have time for the competition  ;D

Thanks Andyg for the hard work. As I say every year, it is always a lot of fun. I don't think I can get too many this year, but I will definitely give it a try. :)

So many replies, while it's getting more difficult. This community is getting smarter all the time. ;D
