Game 10

Following this game (played on 24 January 1995), Peter Cole wrote:

There are two important notes brought about by events of the last couple [of games] which I want to bring to your attention.

1.It is the responsibility of the question setters to provide 20 copies of the questions to the Millstone by the Monday evening before the quiz. If neither of the two teams have access to a suitable photocopier then the committe can organise copying. Teams should contact Graham Bailey on [number redacted] to arrange this. Notice must be given and this is done only as a last resort. We have an outstanding claim on the league from one team for photocopying costs which will be discussed at a committee meeting on Sunday 12th February at 8:00pm at the Millstone.
2.Once again we are getting a plethora of 'phobia' questions. There are no such words as GENOPHOBIA or HEDONOPHOBIA in either the Oxford Shorter Dictionary or the Chambers Dictionary. Regardless of what quiz books say you cannot just put a Greek prefix onto phobia and make an English word. Please think twice about putting these wretched questions in your question sets and then discard them.
