The Quizmasters would like to thank everyone who took part in the Quiz this year. We really tried to make it "easier" this year, in particular by including multiple choice rounds, but you all seemed to struggle with the first one - maybe the answer sheet with the choices pre-printed was too daunting?

 

Here is a copy of the results:

We did not manage to give all of you the answers to the Marathon rounds so we are posting them here. Also, our Experimental "Pointless" round, although the scoring system worked as we planned, proved a little cumbersome from a data entry point of view and, again, we did not have time to explain the results - so it was truly pointless! At least we now know what we need to improve in order for it to work properly another time - maybe we could even turn it into an "App" with a little more development - and testing .......   Some explanation follows the Marathon answers below:
