HFFL’s 3rd Anniversary Trivia Contests to start tomorrow

To commemorate halofanforlife.com’s 3rd anniversary of coming into being, I’ll be posted trivia questions starting tomorrow and continuing through to the 23rd of Sept.

There will be small prizes for those who answer correctly FIRST.

In order to enter these trivia contests, you must be a blog member, which of course is free to join. Go HERE to register and be eligible to win prizes.

I will be posting questions via the blog, twitter, and HFFL’s Facebook page.

Again though, ONLY registered user of the blog can answer and ONLY via the blog itself. So if you answer on twitter or the Facebook page, those answers are NOT eligible to win.

The Halo Bulletin 9-5-14

And you realize that this music doesn’t just magically happen, but that real people put a lot of work into making it come to life!
