    [FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="4"]Ok here is how we play:

    I will post up our Buckscoop Cup maze
    I will then post up 10 quiz questions.
    These questions correspond to the red dots you see on the maze.

    You need to get through the maze in the shortest time possible. To prove that you have gone the right way you must answer the 5 questions in the correct order that you pass over.
    That is on the correct route you will 'go past' 5 lots of dots (numbers 1 to 10). eg if you passed over 4 red dots then you need to answer question 4

    The overall winner is the member that answers the 5 questions in the correct order

    We will also have a sweep prize .. ie the horse that comes in with the most correct answers will grab a prize for all those that placed a bet

    I will also award a $5 to the first 2 members to provide all the correct answers to all 10 questions

    1st prize $15 .... sweep prize will be worked out when we now who has won

    any questions?

    Winners must PM me
