I think that you've earned the right to give the next clue, Angela!

I apologize for the incorrect letter count which makes it obvious that this game really isn't for me but am sure you will continue to enjoy it.

Hope you continue to get other players.

Well, Ill certainly give it a try, but Im not very knowledgeable about these sort of things oh well, my mum always used to tell me that God loves a tryer!!

Its an event that takes place on an island.

Three words 5 letters, 4 letters, 3 digits.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

3rd letter of first word takes the letter r from Cisapline Rupublic.

It takes place on an area of the island, which shares its name with a musical instrument.

Im not sure if this is any good, I hope its not totally crap!

With the greatest of respect I can see now why perhaps you've had trouble getting people to play.

Actually I don't know the answer to this one either.

Well, Intrepid, you should try to answer this one and then throw me a clue I can answer.

Anyway, we do need more people to play, as yk and I think quite similarly. I usually find her clues fairly doable -- or at least I know how to use Google to get the answers. It's good to have a different set of clues thrown into the mix.

I'm guessing the instrument is harp, as related to a region in the Scottish Highlands, but I don't know if this is right and I can't seem to uncover anything via Google.

No, its not the harp.

Clue: the island has a nickname, which relates to a colour.

This might give away too much!

Now I see it must be some sort of motorcycling event on Ireland, but I still don't know what it is!

I'll try it again later. I need to tend to a few things.

Maybe there'll be someone else who knows by the time I get back.

I still haven't had a chance to look at it again since yesterday, but someone else may want to tackle it.

I guess it's the North West 200?

What does this have to do with a musical instrument though?

Thanks for the hints!

Correct!!

Portrush is on the North Coast of Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland. The other two local towns - Coleraine and Portstewart make up the world famous North West 200 course known as the 'Triangle'.

Sorry you havent had much luck in getting other players.

Ah, thanks!

I think that most people just don't want to bother with searching for the answers.

I guess I can give a clue now, but if it sits for too long, maybe someone else should give a clue.

I was just at this store yesterday, so it makes for a reasonable clue. m_kingdom will have no trouble with it, that's for sure.

Clue: This (nationality: 6) designer (2 words: 3, 6) has just split with (label: 5) yet again!

5th letter of designer's last name = "e" (form West).

This (German) designer (Jil Sander) has just split with (Prada) yet again!

Too easy, make it a bit harder ;-)

That's right! Well, I'm trying to entice new people to play, so I've to give a baby clue once in a while.

(Actually I still don't think that my clues are that difficult.)

It was an interesting experience shopping at the store. My mom tried on a few winter coats and asked me what I thought. There was one I really liked, but it was over 11,000 dollars. It was a two-piece design and was classic and yet fashionable. (No we didn't get it.) Fortunately I liked it more than she did.

Prior to this, I had never bothered looking at her clothes because they were just out of my price range.

This one can be Googled, but I've not gotten everything yet.

http://www.pilotguides.com/tv_shows/...o_festival.php

It's a food fight (tomato fight, to be more exact) in Plaza Del Pueblo in Bunol in eastern Spain.

The patron saint is Saint Luis Beltran, but I don't know what the last thing to be filled in is.
