QUIZ RESULTS For Sun 25th

PMofNZ Solid 4 1/2, early bird award.
Chris bird 3 and good additional info.
HP 3 two bonus pts for "long forgotten Politician", very apt, and comments on the Castlepoint races, Tinui/Whareama's 'big day out'.
The Veteran took the last trick.
jonnycomelately scored the ecigar with a fullhouse.
ChrisP 2, the Icecream shop is long gone and I hope the prediction on the faultline does not eventuate, that would make Guy Gibsons days work pale somewhat. A bonus for humor, Perry had a rep as a recycler around the tips on the Wairarapa Coast.

Answers;
1 Edwin Perry one term MP with NZF I think he has flirted with Local body polls since.
2 Looking to Wainui across the main Akaroa Wharf from Beach Road.
3 The bridge to nowhere in the Waimarino west of Horopito, (Crash Palace) and Ruapehu. C B had the story.
4 Benmore The next major Hydro after The Roxburgh Dam on the Clutha and significant for the major earth component of construction.
5 Castlepoint Lighthouse across the beach from the lower level of the Camp. There is a sea cave right through the rock under the Light open from the near side at low tide but always inaccessible from the ocean, well worth the visit alone but as with Lake Coleridge avoid a big westerly if possible.

I didn't enter this week, but I deserve a point as Benmore is on the Waitaki not on the Clutha.

Sorry Cadwallader I didn't mean the next on the Clutha but the next major SI development but you were correct it did read that way duh.
ps must have been too easy this week being of celtic extraction that ecigar hurt me in the hip.

You are forgiven with an excuse like that.
