Oh Boy....Judges have decided that Question #3 has to be thrown out--due to a technicality.
It reads: . In the summer of what year did he become a member
The question should have been written-- In what year did he spend his first summer as a member?
Gingrich's first summer as a member was 1955. But I'm not sure he became a member before summer
, or not. In Gingrich's book The Well Tempered Angler
we learn that that Charles Kerlee was questioned about "the fellow you were hoping to rope in this year." Kerlee said it was Gingrich. That was in April 1955
So, later on in the book, we learn from Gingrich that he spent his first summer as a member in 1955
But who knows if Gingrich became a member in April, May, June or July of 1955. So, my Trivia question throws this into confusion on what the answer is. It appears the year was 1955---but he may have not joined in the summer of 1955
>>The bottom line: Because #3 has be thrown out, JoeCz is the WINNER
The difficult question, in my mind was JOHN POPE, which JoeCz answered correctly. JoeCz answered all other questions correctly. Uncle Joe is referenced in A.J. McClane's The Practical Fly Fisherman, in the wet flies chapter. Because I threw out question #3, I'm declaring a Trivia Contest mistrial ---I am awarding winner status to Bearbutt, JoeCz, Epeorus, and Upstate Trout
As soon as I receive my meager number of "Author Copies" from the publisher, all three of you will get a copy of both of my upcoming books. This usually happens a month or so after the release late. Please note I'll wait until I receive in the mail BOTH books, before I ship them to you. One book has a March 1 release date, the other an April 1 release date. You'll get your books...but there will be a wait
Please PM me your addy
I have Epeorus's addy (but not the addy for the others).
