Thread: Catch the 'Spiderman'

  1. #1

    Default Catch the 'Spiderman'

    From the Straits Times today

    "FRENCH professional climber Alain Robert will scale a building here on Saturday as part of The Straits Times' 163rd anniversary celebrations.
    But which building it will be will remain a secret - till Saturday.
    .........
    He was arrested here in 2000 when he attempted to climb the 63-storey Overseas Union Bank Building at Raffles Place. Police nabbed him on the 23rd floor for criminal trespass."

    Anybody know which building he is climbing ?

    the FLYER will be good publicity ....

    but i will place my dollar on Raffles Swissotel tower for max effect,

    or UOB plaza for lots of empty space for spectators ...

    From The Stratis Times :

    "Letters of the alphabet began appearing in this newspaper's 'A Part of My Life' advertisements last Friday. These ads will run until Friday. Readers will need to collect all the letters and unscramble them to spell out the location where the prize car is on display.

    This mystery location will be near where Mr Robert is scheduled to make his climb.

    Readers have to paste all eight letter-tiles on an entry form to be published in this newspaper on Friday and Saturday, and show up at the mystery location with it between 2pm and 4pm on Saturday to qualify.

    Participants also have to be there for the draw at 6pm. Only correct entries will be eligible for the draw. "


    Its eight letters ...... Anybody has a good guess ?

    There's a "Q" in the location's name.... which actually makes it a little tricky. Some "square" somewhere?

    Gah, editorial got it wrong. It is actually 10 letters, Not 8! Anyway, the helping letters make it quite easy to guess where the venue is
    S_ _T_ _
    _ _ _ _ _ _

    Note : This reveals the event venue, not where he will be climbing. But the building will be very near to the event venue of course

    2-4pm is for contest participants (those who want to win the car) to drop in their entries.
    The event will start at 4pm. Spidey is climbing at 5pm.
    But you may have to come early if you plan to erm, shoot him since the place will most likely be packed.
