Evening (morning) all. I'm a bit late. Had to shovel 10 inches of light flurries out of my driveway.
This quiz is a collaboration between scran and I, and will be scran's last but hopefully not his final
quiz, but that's to be seen. Here's the message I had from the ol' gunslinger a couple of days ago for inclusion in tonight's effort.
After 5 years of running the music quiz, I now find it time to retire gracefully to the background. I have appreciated the assistance of the other Quizmeister - Pigboat, and the occasional efforts of players like Richo, the SSK and Jerry Coe who created quiz's and gave some support to Piggy and I. A special mention to the Memphis Belle - Planepsycho, who also sent me loads of trivia and lyrics questions over the last year. I believe that Piggy will find it difficult to step up to the mark and do the quiz every week, so perhaps someone out there may step up to the plate and help him out. I'll certainly give anyone encouragement.
To everyone who has enjoyed the quiz during my time (even you unclenelli...), thank you for your participartion - it was because of you people that I did the quiz for so long. I'll still have access to read PPRuNe but not post) so will watch with interest where my baby goes...
That was from scran. This is from me. It has been a pleasure buddy.
