Wigan World Thursday Night Pub Quiz 19-3-20

Started by: raymyjamie (6416)

Thought we’d try a quiz tonight.
Not sure how it will go, but hope folk can join in.
Not sure how to mark it as I don’t know if there’s a ‘tick’ function on here.
Worst case scenario I won’t mark, or just post how many correct answers folk have got, that’s if folk join in LOL!!!!!!!!

GOOD LUCK

Hiya Jarvo.
This is a mid evening bit of entertainment, I don’t cater for ‘out-of-hours’ posters.
The only other thing I could do is to leave the quiz open till Friday for any latecomers.
Why don't you do the quiz?
Just a thowt.

Firefox, no worries.
I had a bit of a downer last night, only one person came on in the first hour, but it did pick up later, so I’ll consider another one next week.
Thursday is my best day.
Every fourth Monday is Hindley History Society, Tuesday I do a mini quiz, Wednesday I do Cryptic Crosswords and Friday the big Pub Quiz.
