As our May meeting fell on Memorial Day weekend, we watched Doctor Who stories which featured soldiers. Instead of having a trivia contest, we chose to create one (below), inspired by our viewing theme. Test your knowledge of Doctor Who, then email your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org. Six or more correct answers will win you a free emailed issue of our club newsletter, The Gallifrey Guardian. Winners can also pick an item from our trivia prize selection if they come to the June Anniversary Party (details on our website and Facebook page). Here’s a sampling of a few of our prize offerings, all genre, but not necessarily Doctor Who:
We also have six different character posters from The Crimes of Grindelwald (thanks to Bamf! Comics on Free Comic Book Day). Answers will be posted on the Answer Page of this blog in three weeks; be sure to submit your response before June 19 to be eligible for the newsletter and a prize.
