New Competition by Ken Dunn on 13 May 2004 1:58am
 
We had a competition about vodka and Michael's arm. Here is a new one for Himalaya fanatics. (Sorry this one is not about Michael).
Five questions:
1) There are 14 over 8000m peaks in the Himalaya. Can you name ten of them?
2) Which countries border Nepal to the North, South, East and West?
3) Can you name the glacier on Everest?
4) Who was the first person to climb all 14 of the over 8000m peaks?
5) Finally who was the fourth person to do same?
Rules : 'Yes' and 'No' answers to questions 1 and 3 are wrong.
Prizes : The winner will have the satisfaction of being able to tell all their friends that they won a very difficult competition on the internet.

5) I think the answer to this is Virginia Woolf.
4) Was it Brian Blessed? Just guessing.

what was the question again?
 
Re: New Competition by George on 14 May 2004 6:29am
 
Answer to 5) You?
 
Re: New Competition by Ken Dunn on 14 May 2004 7:32pm
 
Well done Palinite 14. The answers you have given are very close and no, George, the answer to question 5 is not me!
 
Re: New Competition by Ken Dunn on 21 May 2004 2:27am
 
Ok folks, Michael is out there treking the area and there have been very few entries to the competition. Would you like me just to give you the answers or put a closing date on it? How about more suggestions for a better prize!
 
Re: New Competition by Ken Dunn on 24 May 2004 10:46pm
 
Last chance, Palinites. I've decided on a closing date of 30 May. Further research has shown some of the questions to be slightly ambiguous so closest answers win!
