Bumper Argyle Summer Quiz 2015 - Part One
29th June 2015
IT is time to test your knowledge of all things Argyle as we play the 2015 Bumper Argyle Summer Quiz.Between now and Friday, we will be posting two rounds each day, each with a different Argyle-related theme. At the end of the week, after you have had a go at all ten rounds, please send us your answers to email@example.com.
Please do not send sets of answers daily; we will only accept complete answer lists from Saturday, July 4 onwards. Closing date for entry is 5pm on Friday, July 10, 2015. The winner will be the entrant with the most correct answers. In the event of a tie, one of the highest scorers will be selected at random as overall winner.
The prize, as always, is our legendary 'Box of Whatever'. The Box of Whatever is the upshot of the annual tidy-up of the Communications Office, which yields all manner of goodies. This year's Box of Whatever includes (but is not limited to) signed t-shirts; match DVDs; sweets; Argyle shorts; a Celtic shirt (well, it is green and white); posters; team sheets; laces; a scarf; and more.
