Topic: Albufeira Quiz
Posted By: Super__Ally
Subject: Albufeira Quiz
Date Posted: 14/May/2015 at 19:47
This is my families twentieth year visiting Albufeira. You would think I would get fed up with the place but no, I just miss it more every year.
Anyway to celebrate I have been given permission to stage a forum quiz featuring none other than ALBUFEIRA.
The first prize is a book called:-
A Short View Of The History Of Albufeira by Idalina Nunes.
There are no second or third prizes, so please read carefully

I will submit ten questions about Albufeira, one each week, and entrants MUST, PRIVATE MESSAGE me their answer. NO answers are to be posted on the forum. Posting an answer on the forum means immediate disqualification and I will send the GNR round to see you. If a correct answer is received, the participant will qualify to answer the next question, If an incorrect answer is given, the participant is OUT of the quiz and no longer allowed to answer questions.

The quiz is all about FUN and ALBUFEIRA.
The quiz will start next week suggestions and comments are welcomed

Ally, sent you a pm on 15th May which hasn't been read, I think the reason for that is that it may have been to your old member name, re-sent yesterday to your current name when I noticed I wasn't on the list but still not opened. Is it me? You don't call, text, email send flowers any more Cry.

Thanks to everyone who entered the Quiz
There are 6 entries who had all answers correct:-

1     Big Col
2     Cass
3     Carolanclive
4     RichardK
5     Bebop
6     Wireman

I have used Random.org to generate a winner
And the Winner is Big Col

Congratulation Big Col.


Now it has been posted by some that I couldn't run a message never mind a quiz, this is probably true
I know I said at the start of the quiz that the 1st prize was a book but since then I have had come into my possession an 1883 Portuguese coin. It is an XX REIS coin with D. LUIZ . I . REI . DE . PORTUGAL on the flip side. (see picture) So Big Col can have his pick of the first prize, either the book or the coin.


If Big Col can PM me his address and preference I will send his prize asap.

Just been playing a quiz on-line (Instant Quizzes) which is mainly trivia questions. One question was " What were the prizes the patrons of the Yorkshire Tavern in Albufeira were playing for when 28 of them were arrested for illegal gambling. Obviously I got the right answer. Just shows how silly things get known around the globe. Free publicity for the Yorkshire Tavern also
