:euro: Attention B&B'ers. Here is a giveaway contest from our friends at Castle Forbes. The prize is the Castle Forbes Fly Kit Bag. Not only do these Fly Kits conform with the TSA requirements for Airline travel but the people at Castle Forbes have been good enough to offer these to B&B even before they reach shops in Europe or the United States. :thumbup1:


These Kits include one travel-sized shave cream (see pic below), a Castle Forbes Pre-Shave and a Castle Forbes Aftershave balm.

(A $40.00 value)

The first five (5) people to answer all the questions correctly will win one of the Fly Kits.

Since 5 people will win, obviously you can't post the answers in the thread. Therefore your answers must be submitted to me in a private message (pm) and the first 5 pms that I receive with all the questions answered correctly will win a Fly Kit.

(You have my word as a scholar (would you believe a C+ student?) and a gentleman :)shifty:) that I will select the first five winners truthfully and honestly. :yesnod:

This contest will begin in the next 30 minutes. And remember the words of Buddy Love:

Be there or be square Daddy-o. :biggrin:



The questions will be posted in this post. Once the questions go up, the thread will be closed so that no answers are posted in the thread.




Since the prize is a Fly Kit from Castle Forbes, the subject-matter of the quiz will be questions about aviation and questions about Castle Forbes.

GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE. :smile:
