    Win 100 - Answer is - IT IS A WISE FATHER THAT KNOWS HIS OWN CHILD ( Page 3 )

    Win 3000 - Answer is - CAMPUS ( Page 7 )

    Please note
    In the magazine it has two closing dates 04/07 ( 100 ) and 11/07 ( 3000 )
    As both answers are on the same entry form, it may be wise to use the first date 04/07 as the closing date for both competitions.
    ( Hope this makes sense )

    Good luck everyone
