During the winter of 2000 the can.military-brats Newsgroup held a mini trivia contest to drive away the winter blues.Only 10 questions were asked and each question directed the readers to one of the many BRAT sites known within the NG world. Each side, Army/Navy and Air Force took turns asking questions. One point was awarded for the first correct answer. The following are the questions posted. Some with answers.

This contest was open to all registered participants.

Question # 1: In what year was the "Great Escape" held at CFB Trenton and where were the participants from?

Answer:The year was 1972, and the participants were *Air* Cadets from Germany (Baden and Lahr, I think). Chris (for the Blue team)

.. You are correct.

Story is located at

http://www.geocities.com/~bhurley/baden/summercamp.htm

One point for the BLUE team........

Question two

What are the times when the #can.military.brats chat channel is in operation?

Answer: From: Missy and Stuart 24 hours a day ????

close but there was actually two parts to this question that I wanted.

Besides your ???? marks indicated you aren't sure and are probably only guessing.....so this answer is unacceptable as is.

Missy and Stuart wrote:

The brat channel is available 24 hours a day although there is a set time to meet people for chat, unfortunately I don't make the time set aside.

Okay Missy. Before I get into any trouble over semantics, I am going to award you this point. I was looking for 24 hrs a day - 7 days a week.

Correct reference can be found at

Tied contest at 1 point each.

Good for you in plugging the chat room that is open to all brats,whenever they want to chat. Over the past three years it sort of has evolved that people seem to show up at either 9 am or 9 pm (eastern time), but that doesn't mean that that's the only times.

The link shown above has a new feature where you can join the chat room without downloading any software. It can't be any easier.

People there don't bite and are all brats. we enjoy peoples' company and would love to see some new blood show up.

I'm not sure why you aren't getting the posts. Could be anumber of reasons. They all show up on deja-news so I would suspect that either your newsreader needs to have some settings changed (perhaps to read all messages for a thread) or that your ISP doesn't update the newsgroups regularly.

At any rate the answers are on deja-news at

http://www.deja.com/dnquery.xp?DBS=2&VW=&QRY=can.military-brats&svcclass=dncurrent

I'll post question 3 at 6:00 p.m. Calgary time Tuesday Jan 18th.

What was the name of the song that Lori Acheson (Hamilton) heard over and over again on "The Battlefield Trip"?

Found on:

This page is a part of Claire Gagne'sLahr Senior High School Web Site

Lahr Senior High School Bulletin Board

Battlefield Trip--Grade 10:

That really was a memorable trip. Who was it that lost his passport?

My strongest memory from that trip was hearing Crimson and Clover (over and over!) I think Joan Riggs had it on cassette. Love that song! A bunch of us went to Jesus Christ Superstar. At the time, I didn't know I needed glasses, so I didn't see much from the cheap seats! Great music though. Lori Acheson (Hamilton) 1972-75

email: hamiltonlori@altech.ab.ca

The answer is Crimson and Clover.

WooHoo! I finally get a chance to answer a question. Now, I feel really special ;o)

Okay - I'm not even sure I'm a Canadian Army brat anymore - where the heck are these questions coming from. Okay - groundpounder's daughter taking a stab.....

In "RCAF" - (Historical Publication 14, Canadian War Museum, National Museum of Man, National Museums of Canada, , Editor John Swettenham)......

No. 1 Wing (No. 1 Air Division Europe) by the authority of H.M. Queen Elizabeth in October 1954. It was formed as No. 1 (Fighter) wing at North Luffenham, Rutland, England on November 01, 1951, and moved to it's European station, Marville France on March 01, 1955; relinquished its specialized fighter designation on March 01 1963, moved to Lahr Germany on April 01,1967, integrated into the Canadian Armed Forces on February 01, 1968.

So there!

How about an Army question?

Due to an overwhelming desire to give the opposition a chance to catch up, this question is a not only an Army related question but is also multiple choice to make it easier to answer.

Which unit is the backbone of any fighting force?

a. Infantryman

b. Armoured unit

c. Artilleryman

d. Field Engineer

e. All of the above?

Well with the last of 10 promised questions now posted, I have some final thoughts on the trivia:

1, The Army Brats are a great bunch to let us "Pigeons" have so much fun with them.

2. Despite all the research required, posting the questions was a lot of fun.

3. I think that some of the participants learned something new from this.

4. It will be a shame to see the NG go quiet again because we don't have a contest running.

5. Do we need something on a daily basis that will inspire communication regularly. Like a daily inspirational thought; horoscope; trivia question (without keeping score); or perhaps a joke of the day or some poetry? What are your thoughts?

okay, the lurkers win. The contest is over and the NG has gone quiet. it is so quiet i can no longer hear the noise of my clinking keyboard as i respond to the trivia questions.

So, here is what I propose. It is a game of trivia tag. I will start by asking a question. The person who answers my question gets to ask the next question. And so on. Perhaps there may not be a great rush to answer the questions but it just might spark some responses.

I can't stand the quiet. I have no cookies to munch on. Here is my question.

Who, in this NG is called "The Pie Lady".? Whoever answers gets to pose a more challenging question.
