Trivia Rounds - May: Round 30/May 30th RESULTS: 10 players participated


QUESTION 1
Quote:

Name of a movie released BEFORE 2005/this year starring actor James Doohan (Note: movies released in 2005 or later, movies made for TV, and movies that James Doohan was either uncredited or just provided the voice for a character will NOT be accepted)




10 points: Man In The Wilderness, Pretty Maids All In A Row, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Amore, Storybook, Double Trouble

5 points: New York Skyride (2), The Cage (2)

Not Mentioned: There were lots more to chose from --- This site gives a list (Note: this list includes the responses which I specified would not be accepted as well)



QUESTION 2
Quote:

Name of a book in the Belle Palmer Series written by Lou Allin




10 points: Nobody

5 points: Blackflies Are Murder (7), Bush Poodles Are Murder (3)

Not Mentioned: Northern Winters Are Murder, A Little Murder Is a Dangerous Thing (released April 2005)



QUESTION 3
Quote:

Title of a song on the album, My Stompin' Grounds (released in 1972) by Stompin' Tom Connors




10 points: My Stompin' Grounds, Song Of The Irish Moss, Bonnie Belinda, Song Of The Peddler, Tillsonburg, Cross Canada, The Snowmobile Song, Wop May

5 points: Name The Capital (2)

Not mentioned: The Bridge Came Tumblin' Down, Tribute to Wilf Carter, Song of the Cohoe


QUESTION 4
Quote:

The 2005 Mastercard Memorial Cup was played from May 20th to May 29th (The London Knights finished their dream season by winning the Memorial Cup/Canada's Junior Hockey Championship for 2004-05) --- name one of the players who played in at least 1 of the 4 Memorial Cup tournament games for the Memorial cup winning London Knights (Note: there are a handful of players listed on the Knights roster who did not play in any of the Knights games in the Memorial Cup tournament and players who did not play in any of the games will NOT be accepted as correct answers)




10 points: Daniel Girardi, Danny Syvret, Gerald Coleman, Brandon Prust, Trevor Kell, Marc Methot, Bryan Rodney, Adam Dennis

5 points: Corey Perry (2)

Not Mentioned: Danny Fritsche, Robbie Schremp, Dylan Hunter, David Bolland, Drew Larman, Josh Beaulieu, Robbie Drummond, Steve Ferry, Jordan Foreman, Matt McCready, Kelly Thomson

Note: The players who were ineligible as answers to my question but were members of the team: Ryan Martinelli, Adam Perry, Frank Rediker, Harrison Reed, Jeff Whitfield ---The London Knights are owned by the Hunter Family --- their GM is former NHL'er Mark Hunter and they are coached by former NHL'er Dale Hunter.
The London Knights pretty much re-wrote the Canadian Jr, Hockey record books this season, and after winning the Memorial Cup were (deservingly) described as one of the best (if not the best) Canadian junior hockey teams ever --- they started the season with 29 wins and 2 ties before finally losing game 32/their first loss of the season in mid-Dec. (they played the better part of a month missing 5 or 6 of their top players to the Canadian and/or USA World Junior tournament teams. They finished the regular season with 59 wins, 7 losses and 2 ties --- they won their league (OHL) playoffs with 16 wins and 2 losses, and won all 4 of their Memorial Cups games --- overall season record 79 wins, 9 losses and 2 ties.
Look for many of these players to be playing in the NHL in the very near future!


QUESTION 5
Quote:

The bugs are attacking --- give me the name of a place in Canada that has an insect that is NOT a mosquito roadside attraction (There are at least 6) (Note: The mosquito roadside attractions have already been the subject of one of my Trivia Round questions and will NOT be accepted as answers for this round)




10 points: Nobody

5 points: Ogema, Saskatchewan (Ralph The Grasshopper) (3); Falher, Alberta (World's Largest Bee) (3); Wilkie, Saskatchewan (World's Largest Grasshopper) (2); Tisdale, Saskatchewan (World's Largest Honeybee) (2)

Maybe people avoided the spiders because you asked for 'an insect that is NOT a mosquito' and spiders are arachnids not insects? I know that that is why I didn't pick a spider.

I'd have accepted the spiders as insects due to the fact that the main website I'm using as a reference for my "roadside attractions" questions included them under the heading of Insects.
