    I've found that using an I pad
    in the quiz room is hard work
    Bordering on the impossible

    The gap at the bottom seems to rise
    until you have a seemingly open page

    It works on a mac
    Haven't tried on the kindle

    Best I can say get the questions sorted sharpish
    To me that was the hard part

    Large bit of paper space for names
    vertical lines
    and horizontal lines

    20 across
    20 down
    allow for toting up at the right
    names on the left

    3 for first correct
    2 for second
    1 for third


    Underline your posts so you stand out as QM :thumb:

    Hope for at least ten it's easier and more competitive and less tacticle
    Don't forget to post a reminder post Thursday afternoon /evening
