Commonwealth Contest: September/October
12 Oct 2010
Posted by Andrew Kantor
All right, ladies and gents, let’s be about it. There’s a Creative Vado HD camcorder looking for a home.
If you followed the instructions on page 34 of the September/October Commonwealth, you ended up with five groups of letters. Here’s what you do.
- Discard the middle group. (Sorry, three-letter language-services company!)
- Discard the very first letter and very last letter.
- No one likes to fail. Discard any Fs.
- You know what? Discard any Ds, too. We’re better than that.
Now for the tough part:
When the VAR marketing staff have lunch at Casa Grande (“the big house”), Amanda Rainsford always asks for something. The remaining letters anagram into what it is; it’s a single word. (That is, you need to rearrange them. So if you had DOSA the answer would be SODA.)
E-mail me with what it is by 11:59 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 14. I’ll take all the correct answers and draw a winner of the Vado.
Bonus: I’ll then draw a second winner who will receive a cool PowerLine Powercup inverter — plug it into your car’s cigarette lighter and get two 120-volt outlets for your laptop, phone charger, or whatever!
