SANTA, EGG NOG AND $600 IN VOUCHERS TO GIVE AWAY ... Still $550 to give away!

17 December 2008

Here is the deal .... Santa needs to find some 'inner resolve' to get him on his merry way. Egg Nog being Santa's favourite tipple he is wanting to make up a batch using his mother's old recipe ..... but where are all the ingredients?

Hidden amongst the Buckscoop merchants are small piccies of the 7 ingredients Santa is after. Solve the simple clues below , head off to those merchant pages and grab the name of the ingredients and the name of the merchants

We have 3 prize levels:

The winner is the Buckscooper that finds ALL the ingredients and merchants and one picture of one of the ingedients in the fastest time and PM's the answers to me. The winners prize is a $20 Deals Direct voucher and 2 x $5 OO.com.au vouchers

We then have two runner up prizes for the next two fastest Buckscoopers which is a $10 Deals Direct voucher and 2 x $5 OO.com.au vouchers

Lastly 50 Buckscooper will recieve 2 x$5 vouchers when they find 3 of the 7 ingredients and merchants and one picture

The Rules:
1. Each winner MUST PM me with the ingredients list and all of the merchant names AND one picture of one of the ingredients
2. The winners of first 2nd and 3rd prize MUST PM me ALL of the ingredients and merchants. Other winners only need to PM 3 ingredients and merchants and one picture
3. Each member that enters the comp MUST place a comment in this thread after sending me a PM.
4. Any member that posts the answers anywhere in the forum will have their post removed and they sadly will not be included in the competition
5. My word on the winners is final
6. Please don't share answers with friends in the forum
7. Good luck

  • MamaK
    sounds like fun :D I'm in
  • carolina88
    how do we insert pictures
  • craftykiwi
    Right click and copy image or image location.
  • carolina88
    are we able to just post the image location url or does it have to be the actual picture coz i don't know how to do that. copy image does not work.
  • craftykiwi
    I think last time I just posted the url too and that was fine.
  • craftykiwi
    I'm assuming the clues haven't been posted yet and unlike last time I'm still in the right thread Nod?
  • MamaK
    Have I missed the clues?
  • craftykiwi
    No I just realised the time was changed from 9pm to 9.15pm so we're both early.
  • absolutebeginner
    No, don't think so. Still not quite time...
  • MamaK

    [FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="4"]Absolutebeginer updates and swoops in to take 3rd prize :) [/SIZE][/FONT] We still have $500 in OO.com.au vouchers to give away and all you need to do is find 3 ingredients and 3 merchants and one pic .... 5 mins work for $10 - not bad :)
  • craftykiwi
    Maybe I'm looking for the wrong thing.
  • nod
    craftykiwi;75593
    Maybe I'm looking for the wrong thing.
    The thing to do is just work on the clues to work out who the merchants are ... then simply click thru to the merchant in the ]stores If you have the merchant correct then you will find a URL for a pic - copy that. PM me the ingredients name and merchant and one pic :)
  • craftykiwi
    I give up - have no idea. Obviously just too late for my tired brain!
  • absolutebeginner
    Thanks everyone - good fun yet again. Time for bed!

  • craftykiwi
    The first picture I found was a squid and thought Nod was trying to be funny and create a unique eggnog! So that threw me for the rest of the search! When we've finished I'd love to know what that last ingredient with the red ball inside it is??? Can't make heads or tails of it.
