Current Quiz Previous 100 Winners Rules
From Fort Lauderdale, Florida, I've just posted a new Geography Quiz on 03/10/14 at approximately 09:00AM EST. A $100.00 cash prize will be paid to the person who submits the first correct answer, and anyone (worldwide) can participate.
Clue #1 (03/10/14)
This place that looks a bit like a musical instrument from space (at least to me), was first named by locals, then renamed to honor the first outsider to gaze upon its beauty.
(Looking a bit like a bass fiddle from space, the lake was initially named Piékouagami (Flat Lake) by the Kakouchak Innu who lived on its shores. It was given its French name after Jean de Quen, a Jesuit missionary who in 1647 was the first European to reach its shores)
Clue #2 (03/10/14)
Surprisingly (at least to me, but then, I am easily surprised) a part of the overall area served as a secret prison during a major military conflict. I hope the bad guys wore their mittens.
(In the 1940s, during World War II, the Lac Saint-Jean area held a Prisoner-of-war camp)
Lac Saint-Jean, Quebec, Canada
The first correct answer received was submitted by:
Stephen Marshall, Lee's Summit, Missouri, USA
