Hhhmmm...Ascend - some disention in the ranks? :hmm:


You may (or may not) realise that the two Quizmeisters are rather far apart geographically, and while we sometimes colude on quiz questions (:E ) both tend to use their own question banks (well, thats how I do it anyway...) and prepare the Quiz in advance (I normally have 2 or 3 ready to go........).


Having said that, I don't always have time to go through Piggy's Quiz in detail and check it against my next quiz to see if any questions/themes are contained in both......:uhoh:


So, there is some chance that questions may double up from time to time...:{


If you want to assist by providing some questions for the Quizmeisters to use that are different...both Pigboat and I await your e-mail eagerly, because researching and compiling the quiz takes an amount of our OWN time for your enjoyment......:ok:
