Competition

Snab has recently come into possession of some 600 odd buckets!!  All these buckets have a hole drilled in the bottom of them (Dear Liza Dear Liza ... ) and there is in fact a Bona Fide reason for this.  If anyone knows the true reason for this they can tell Snab and he might buy them a pint, although he is far more likely to have a two word conversation the second word being ‘off!’

The competition prize, however, will go to the most original, inane, insane, inventive, innovative, idiotic, idiosyncratic or incredible idea for possible usage of aforementioned articles (not necessarily all 600 at once).  Anyone daft enough to want to enter should post their entries to the editor (address inside front page) to arrive no later than January 31st 1995. Winner of the 'Mystery Prize' will be chosen at the editor's discretion (though some would say there is nothing discreet about your beloved editor).

Also on the following page is a crossword compiled by Angie Cave.  The first person to get a correct solution to Angie or Jingles will win one of Snabs Buckets and if they are lucky a free pint!  (Wow ... how can you resist such an offer.)
