Subject: BS: Fathers' Day quiz
From: Nigel Parsons
Date: 20 Jun 04 - 01:25 PM

Another new quiz, posted here before taking it to the local club.
The theme is obvious, and the link may be in either the question, or the answer!

Please do NOT post answers in the thread
Claims of scores may be posted here, but more people get a chance to try it if the answers are not posted too early.

Answers can be PMd to me for scoring if required.

CHEERS
