    At 6 pm PST, the official "Trivia Challenge" will begin. THREE WINNERS THIS TIME.

    The winner will be awarded a one year Golden Feather Membership or a BYC Calendar
    Second and third place is a 6 month Golden Feather Membership

    This contest will send you on a hunt to various parts of BYC, our sister sites, and even some of our sponsors’ websites!
    A few tips and rules:

    1. Open 2 or 3 windows (or use tabbed browsing if you have it). Keep one window open to the contest and use the other windows to search for your answers. The questions will all be posted right here in post #1. (You will be asked to post links, also known as URLs, as answers to some questions).

    2. Don’t post pictures or custom smilies, and only one or two regular smilies if you really must (we do not want to slow anyone down).

    3. Please number your answers so I can more easily find them and tally the score.

    4. One point for the correct answer – that’s it.

    5. Don’t edit your post once you've answered – that’s it, no more answers. If you change your mind you can post again. Edited posts will not count.

    6. One question will be posted at a time. Whoever answers first with the correct answer will win the point. Whoever wins the most points WINS the Membership!!
