I changed the question at the last minute, but forgot to change my 'answer' sheet.

The question was 'At which game has the actor Omar Sharif represented his country'?
The answer is 'The card game Bridge'.

Late night playing out, Ray. That's summer for you. But as you often see, it's still a pleasure to catch up later and I'm sure you know how we all appreciate your efforts.

It is noted how you do a thorough job in tailor making your questions to suit your 'audience'. Something a good pub quizmaster should try to do. Keep up the good work.

I was going to mention your prompt 8 pm starts too. Very Happy


But I'm afraid on a night like last night, I was missing in action for a good while and ended up pushing my bike home after having a lot to drink.

It's a safety precaution of mine. If, after two pints, I decide I'm going to continue, I open up the throttle and shift a fair few more.


Anyroad, this method works, as once I'm having issues walking in a straight line, I know I daren't try cocking on.


At least I don't ride my bike the wrong way down Ormskirk Road. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
