For Bill, Sarah, Heather and me we have a lot going on during this season, too. This is the high season for competitions. Bill has just named the winner of the dinner quiz (the one where you win a homemade dinner at his house! I was one of the lucky winners of this one in the Fall of 2002. That's probably why Bill knew that I would be good hiring quality in 2009). Coming up is the Travel Writing competition, for which the prize is £50. There is the Photography Competition, voted on by the students. And of course the new term-long Scavenger Hunt. The prizes for these competitions will be given out at the End of Term Event. Fall '10 students, find info about these competitions on the board in the front entry. But the competitions don't end there for us. The Spring '11 students are getting weekly emails from Bill with quizzes to win a bit of cash upon arrival in January.
Here are some reminders of the glory that comes with winning:
|Dena was the first to ask a man in a kilt to dance with her at the ceilidh! That was worth £5. I don't think he wanted the dance to end.|
|Carrie was a bit of a quiz master in Stratford and Oxford.|
|Heather taking £5 off of Bill.|
|Back in August Theresa collects her summer winnings for answering one of the quizzes in the pre-arrival emails. I bet £10 made her jet lag a little less bitter.|
