Another competition

Postby Who's Wee Dug » Sat Nov 10, 2012 1:09 am

Here's how you could win one of five copies of The Compleat Ankh-Morpork.

Fancy an esteemed position in the Guild of Merchants? Already know what your trade would be? Well this is a question of cleverness and imagination!

We want to know what you would call your shop/organisation if you had one in Ankh-Morpork! Sir Terry will pick the best five names and those people will win a copy of The Compleat Ankh-Morpork and a Terry Pratchett book bag to put it in!

Send your answers to:

discworld@transworld-publishers.co.uk

(if you have problems with the email address try typing it in rather than cutting and pasting)

Open Worldwide, ends 16th November.

Good Luck! - Lynsey

I went with :
Guild of Swamp Dragon's day care and flying service.

Your Dragon's will benefit greatly from the excersize and socialising in an embarrassment,a flown and blown Dragon is a happy Dragon!

All flights and walks take place in a guaranteed Royal/Hero-free environment(Draco vulgaris only).

Member of the Ankh-Morpork Cavern Club,associated with the Adopt-a-Dragon scheme from the Sunshine Sanctuary for Sick Dragons

Remember,A Dragon is not just for Hogswatch!

There are people who have had their best ideas in a similar state Chris, what I meant was check out if there were something near to it, but if there was nothing could be the start of a new one. :)

They said that the competition ends on the 16th, right? So how do they announce the winners? :think:
