Llama facts quiz
August 28th 2010
Visitors to the annual Trewether Fete will know that LAMA (Lerryn Area Minibus Association) has a stall and that our main attraction is a llama (sometimes accompanied by her baby) brough by Sue Carter from Lostwithiel. We always appreciate Sue's generous support.
Every year, we run a quiz based on llamas and this year was no exception. We had a llama facts quiz with five multiple choice questions and a tie breaker.
Mr D Lloyd, who won the quiz, generously donated his £5.00 prize to the Alzheimers' Society.
We promised to all those who took part in the quiz that we would publish the answers on the website:
Tie breaker: a llama is pregnant for 350 days
August 28th 2010
You may well have heard about the accident at Pentewan Sands, near Mevagissey, yesterday. A father and son suffered serious leg and head injuries when they were thrown out of their Dory. Because a kill cord had not been attached correctly, the engine of the boat kept running and the boat continued to circle, running over the two people twice.
This shows the importance of using a kill cord with your outboard motor. It should be attached to the engine at one end and to the body of the helmsman at the other. In the case of an unfortunate accident, resulting in the person being thrown overboard, the cord will detach from the motor and the engine will cease to run.
