and a message from Glennis......

If you have enjoyed the quiz, do send them in. People who have retained them, often comment on not being able to do one or two, and feel they should not forward them. We are grateful to all those who support us, and feed back helpful remarks. Many thanks once again to Pat who compiles them, and who has already begun working on the next one. The sale of the quizzes is another valuable addition to FGC funds. We print 100 each edition, so if you know of anyone who would enjoy the challenge, please buy an extra one for them! 

Thank you to everyone who purchased a quiz, and especially to our compilers, Pat and Glennis.  We look forward to your next brain buster!
