Ball-Athon 2012-2013 Segment I – “Who Said” Contest Material

Ball-Athon 2012-2013 Segment I – “Who Said” Contest Material

All of the question answers can be found on the WUS Ball forum, Topper Fine Jewelers web site or ballwatch.com. All WUS posts that are referenced are from 2012 so don't look back any further. There are 25 questions total. Some have multiple answers and those with multiple answers must have all answers correct to count for that number. To avoid tracing back photo links they have been copied to my photo album (So my photo album is not the answer) so you will need to find them on the forum the old fashion way, actually looking for them. Submit all answers in order number 1-25 to samanator via PM. Contest will end 6pm PST on Wednesday December 19[SUP]th[/SUP] (2012).

(As a note samanator is not the answer to any question)

Please see rules here: https://www.watchuseek.com/f239/ball-athon-2012-2013-segment-dates-rules-789094.html

We have the on screen version as well as the pdf format.

The PDF seems to work on Tapatalk and Safari for the ipad. Must be just the iphone.

Thanks we try.

Re: Ball-Athon 2012-2013 Segment I – “Who Said” Contest Material

Reminder you have 14 hours left to get your Segment one submissions in. Don't think it's to late since there are points to be had in this one and three more segments to go.

Re: Ball-Athon 2012-2013 Segment I – “Who Said” Contest Material

Wow! I thought the questions would be more along the lines of "spell Ball". For a relative newcomer, this contest will take some serious man-hours of research. And as I work 12-14 hour days (plus late-night office time) and have a family, I'm going to have to regretably bow out of this one.
Good luck, guys!
