Check back to the November Quizzes and Puzzles Round Up thread to see results, thanks from setters and how much money was raised!

NOTICE: Please remember it is vital that you add contact details i.e. email or postal address, the closing date, the cost, where the quiz funds will be going and the theme of the quiz, thanks.

Magpas quiz update from quizmouse
I must apologise for the delay, the first time ever this has happened. All the sheets arrived & were opened etc on the 2nd dec. However we have had a series of events occuring since then, illness, a week away, christmas and a new grandaughters arrival which was not straight forward.... so each time the time set aside for serious marking, compiling etc came around, I could not devote the appropriate time for this. It was suggested that I revamp an old quiz, but I dont like this idea, I dont feel it's fair, so I decided to let you all know that we will get new year out of the way, and you will get your results and the new quiz within a few days time. Many apologies for this series of events , most of which are beyond my control. Apart from the holiday, ( which I feel I could do with again!)
So I am asking you all if possible to bear with me, and I hope you all have a happy new year...
also note that I think the MAGPAS quiz is one where the setter requests no asking on internet forums.
