Biggest Scandal since Twenty-One Quiz Show
I can empathise with you Wicklore, I have just completed a recent post on Gullion and now must fix my attentions on finishing off the questions for a quiz where I am calling the shots tomorrow evening. As a quizmaster and question setter you must be fair, acknowledge your mistakes and try to avoid ambiguity as much as possible, none of which seems to have happened for your MV team. But hey, isn't it great to have a chance to challenge the quizmaster ;-)

But it's not always easy being quizmaster, I know that two of the best teams attending the quiz I am involved with tomorrow evening are friends, family and hill walking buddies of mine, so I'm here at my kitchen counter racking my brains as to how to nobble them!! Maybe the same approach was taken on MV teams, in order to spread around the glory and keep everyone interested! All that being said, a few of my hillwalking buddies are clearly dab hands at the quizzes, so if you want me to put together a loaded MV3 team for next year just let me know and I will vow to get MV back in the top three :-)

PS: Definitely should have given you the point on Russia
