Default Congratulations to the 2005 McCaffrey Quest Winners!

Please join me in congratulating the winners of the 2005 McCaffrey Quest Trivia Challenge!

Grand Prize Winner: Kesal, who's opting for Dragonfire by Jody Lynn Nye
1st Runner Up: Nefermiw, who's opting for A Diversity of Dragons by Anne McCaffrey with Richard Woods
2nd Runner Up: Jax, who's opting for a signed copy of Dragonholder by Todd McCaffrey
3rd Runner Up: C_ris, who's opting for Dragonharper by Jody Lynn Nye


These four really know the Life and Times of Anne McCaffrey quite well, as evidenced by their impressive scores and obvious enthusiasm in recent posts.

We will eventually be releasing the answers to the challenge, so check back on MoM or the MQ site for those answers that you're dying to know! Before we release the answers, we're going to throw the challenge open to anyone else that wishes to participate for the sheer fun of it and possible glory of a high score which will be listed on our Wall of Fame. You have until the end of October to get those answer in to us. Please email them to quest@srellim.org and make the subject "2005 MQ Wall of Fame Entry." C'mon - you know you want to give it a try! And as C_ris can tell you, more than half the answer can be found online if you know where to look!

First off I'd like to thank Cheryl, Hans, Anneli and Pam who put all of this together, as I've said before, it took me forever to try to find answers for all of these, and while many of the answers must have been at your expert fingertips I'm sure it would have taken at least as long to put together the 100 questions, let alone sort out the rules and prizes etc.
Thank you all very much! {{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{snugsels}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}} }}}

I'd also like to thank the people who donated the prizes, some of which I believe are the same as above

I can't believe that you gals didn't want Dragonholder, but now it is mine!! woohoo!

Can't wait for the answers so I can see what I got right!

hehe Jaxie, I have already got a copy of Dragonholder, with one of the signed bookplates I won during live trivia at OKT. So it's all yours!

Congrats to everyone else who entered

That'll teach all those who thought they needed to be experts outright, C_ris. As you had a vey respectable score by doing your research through the internet and (I suppose) help from Google?

Also hats off to Kesal and Jax :applause:

What Hans? No hats off to me?

Well, I had fun trying to answer as many questions as possible, so a big thank you from me goes out to all those that made the Quest and donated the very nice prizes.
I like the system were the winner and runner-ups get to chose from a pool of prizes since it means that even though I didn't win I actually got what I wanted to win the most.

It is a pitty that not more people entered, but it did take a lot of time to research, so I can understand if people didn't think that they had time - 100 questions is a lot to answer even if they all had been easy questions.

I am curious to know what the first name of Anne's ex is and what the answer is to some of the other that I had to give up on is.

Sorry the contest fell on a bad weekend for you Ghyle. But now's your chance to try for a spot on the Wall of Fame! You've got until the end of the month to get an entry in. Surely you can find time to answer just 5-10 little questions a day until you're done?

But even google not only has it's limits - but turns up ten sites of junk for every (even slightly) useful website!!!

I know That's why you had to got to at least page 4 and farther of Google results. That was no chance but pure planning

I chickened out after all, plus being too tired when we got home. Couldn't even find the questions in a quick peak that Sat.

I wish, Cheryl.

I have to study for my exam (I shall be trying to memorise lots of poetry), I have to get stuck into numerous book reviews, and I have four essays to write, over the next four months. So I shall be a tad too busy to join in. Oh well: I hope the jingles at least helped out.

Ah, good Kesal!

Your books and everyone else's items (hmm, all books too as I recall) should be arriving in the next week or two via international post. If everyone could let us know as items arrive, we'd appreciate it!

I realized I didn't actually release the scores of our winners - in some cases not even to said winners themselves! Each question was worth a ten points (to make partial credit simple for multi-part answers), giving a total of 1000 points possible.

Kesal - 854/1000 or 85.4%
Nefermiw - 789/1000 or 78.9%
Jax - 767/1000 or 76.7%
C_ris - 618/1000 or 61.8%

C_ris, you didn't do bad at all. Fourth place with internet research and your own knowledge of course is a tremendous achievement, one that should make everybody who thought "too difficult, not enough time" ashamed!

I figured that as the grand prize winner you deserved more than just one, especially as I happened to have had an extra copy of Dragonharper beyond the one listed as a prize already.

YAY!!! My prize has arived!!!
Now, were to put it it's huge. No way that book can join my other AM books on the shelves. Well, gonna read it all through before I'm putting it on shelves, so I guess I can worry later about the lack of space for my growing AM collection.
The pictures are really inspiring - makes me want to draw a lot of dragongs using colours.
