Alpine Christmas Quiz

December 17, 2020
Content Sidebar

Join us for our Alpine Christmas Quiz on Tuesday 22nd Dec at 6pm (GMT) live on the Alpine Garden Society YouTube channel!

Our Alpine Christmas Quiz is free for everyone to join – so come and have some alpine Christmas fun with us!

Mimicking a traditional pub quiz, there will be 6 rounds, each worth 10 points, with a fill in the blanks round, a Christmas alpines round, an odd one out round – and a few more!

To take part, join us live on YouTube at 6pm (GMT) on Tues 22nd Dec with pen and paper at the ready.

You absolutely do not need to be an alpine expert to take part – we’ve designed the questions to level the playing field between our expert botanists and our amateur enthusiasts, so why not come and try your luck?

We’ve got 3 glorious goody bags to give away to the lucky winners!

How to Record Your Quiz Answers

Give your team a Christmassy name and listen as our host takes you through question by question.

Use our official printable answer sheet to write your answers down or get our online answer sheet to type your answers in on a device.

Alternatively, use any old notepad you have knocking about at home (just be sure to number the rounds and questions correctly!) – we’re not fussy!

 

Enter for Your Chance to Win!

At the end of the quiz, send your answer sheet to fay@alpinegardensociety.net within 10 mins of the quiz end time.

Either send a photo of your paper answer sheet or attach your answers as a Word document – up to you. Just make sure your answers are legible to be in with a chance of winning big!

This will ‘lock in’ your answers so we know you haven’t changed them later. Our host will then take you through the answers live on YouTube, where you’ll be asked to mark your own answer sheet.

You’ll then be asked to send one final email to fay@alpinegardensociety.net with your team name and score in the subject line.

The teams who report the top 3 scores will receive our fabulous goody bag prizes (please see the terms and conditions below)!
