Quiz Paper Verdict

The Guest setter this week can now be revealed as Gerry Hennessy.  Although I think many quizzers had worked this out from the style of the questions.  The paper has received universal acclaim and I think it is only fair to thank Gerry for not only producing an excellent (and high scoring) paper , but doing so at very short notice.  Hopefully we will have lots of positive feedback on the Message Board.
