Right, here’s the second half of the Brownhills Blog New Year Quiz 2017 – these questions are for those who can explore the area and have a nose around – the first set were released yesterday, and are for those who may be unable to explore or just prefer to research their answers online.
You can answer as many questions as you like in ether part. The highest score in either part will win Backyard Ale (or an equivalent if you don’t drink!)
If many remain unanswered, I’ll award the prizes and leave the remainder open for spot prizes.
All pictures are from our area, or places you might find me, reasonably locally.
Remember, this is just for fun!
Answers will close at 9pm, Sunday 8th January 2017, or until every question is answered beforehand.
Points will be awarded to the first person to comment the correct answer to any question. All questions worth one point unless stated. After that, no points will be handed out for answering it again. I will tot up the scores as we go. Answers will only be accepted as comments to the quiz posts, and my decision will be open and final.
Remember to include the number of the question in your comment, otherwise it won’t be counted! Answers will only be accepted as comments here – any on Facebook, Twatter or via email will be ignored.
Don’t worry if your comment is held in moderation, I will take the submission time if necessary.
I don’t expect anyone to get lots right. I think the questions are diverse enough that a fairly low score might well win – so do have a go. If the result is a draw, I’ll hold a tie breaker. What form that will take will depend on the result. Please just take a punt, and have fun.
