    [SIZE=4] [SIZE=6] Welcome to the Buckscoop Olympics [/SIZE] Our first event is the Equestrian Competition. As this is our first night in the games, we are going to keep things simple. No skill involved at all :D We have our rider but he is missing one vital thing! http://www.selleriaferro.com/horse_racing/graphics/clothesstore.jpg His _ _ _ _ _! The word is pretty basic ..... so all you need to do is spell out the word ..... then click on the ]'stores' on Buckscoop ..... find the first merchant listed that starts with each letter ... eg if the word was 'kite' you would go to the Buckscoop merchants starting with k, i, t, and e. With the letter 'k' the Buckscoop merchant would be: KEMWEL Under each of these merchants you will find a letter that spells the missing things name .... the first person to PM me ]Nod the correct name grabs 1st prize. There is of course a silver and bronze medal to be won. The letters you will find are jumbled so you will need to rearrange them to get the name. ONE CHANCE ONLY IE ONE PM TO ME PER ENTRANT WE NEED TO KEEP OUR STANDARDS HIGH FOR THE OLYMPICS [/SIZE]

  • MamaK
    pm'ed you but it's confused the hell out of me LOL
  • snufle
    What was the word you were looking for? Had the letters but couldnt figure out the word! :( ________ ]Dc medical marijuana dispensaries
  • MamaK
    what was the answer?
  • craftykiwi
    Sorry Nod - wasn't anything personal but I was trying to think of some majestic name and when I saw the answer I thought I must have got it wrong!
  • craftykiwi
    It was 'Doris'.
  • snufle
    What was the answer? ________ ]Fix Ps3
  • nod
    The Horse's name (what the jockey was missing) is DORIS An odd name I know but a friend of mine is wanting to get a tortoiseshell kitten called Doris .. just stuck in my mind :D
  • jenniet
    I thought I got the answer but it was wrong....
  • jenniet
    I didn't realise we were naming the horse.... :) lol!
  • golfwidow
    LOL i came up with ROIDS at first but knew that was wrong :D
  • snufle
    Right... how would we be supposed to know that? Guess I wasn't thinking 'out of the box' :p ________ ]PrisscumXXX

    Right... how would we be supposed to know that? Guess I wasn't thinking 'out of the box' :p
    You just had to rearrange the letters and guess when you thought it was right. Nothing else seemed to work.
  • jenniet
    'Roids' seemed fairly appropriate for the games... but 'Doris' is more family friendly...
  • craftykiwi
    Better borrow my son's weights and get in training for tomorrow night.
  • winniblu
    I worked out what I was doing I was just not clucking on the description to find the letter

    Doh! I had that, but it took me ages because I thought 'nah, no way is that the answer'.

    Ditto Hellwolf - hence my term 'corny'. :rolleyes: Maybe the name of a horse on a farm or in a paddock, but an Olympic Equestrian event??

    Roids, brother of hemmer right ?
  • melissanj
    So im a bit confused...were you suppose to click on " harris tech..." because it started with H...and then scrammbled the letters in the heading? I know its finished but i just couldnt work it out!
  • nod
    You needed to click on the first merchant in the list of those that started with 'H' ie you would use the A-Z option for filtering all the Buckscoop merchants :) and then you would check the 1st merchant starting with 'O' then 'R' etc ..
  • melissanj
    i see!! thanks for that :)

What do you think?
