Post No McCaffrey Quest for 2011

MoM Staff are all too busy this year to put together a McCaffrey Quest. It is quite a lot of work to assemble and score, and with fairly low participation numbers none of us are moved to put forth the effort this fall.

My apologies to the loyal few who take it year after year who may be disappointed by the news.


We may get Pam to run another Valentine's Day quiz in 2012, especially if we all ask nicely!

I enjoyed the quests, but totally understand why you can't do it this year! A Valentine's Day quiz would be fun!

Can't say I won't miss it, but totally understand. I'm grateful for the ones we've had! And maybe another year someone will be inspired to do it. (A Valentine quiz would be great!)

If I do a Valentine Quiz it'll be on Year of the Lucy or Kilternan Legacy.

Pretty please with a cherry on top, Pam?

And thanks to all the staff who try their best at getting it organised every year too. Maybe a break this year will help us next year. Thanks for letting us know, Cheryl.

I probably wouldn't have time to enter this year anyway, but it is fun to read the questions all the same. I am always amazed at the huge effort you guys put into this for our pleasure and can fully understand that you've decided not to do the quest this year.

I would like to thank the wonderful MOM staff here for all of their hard work and dedication! If it would be feasible for to do one on Valentine's Day I would really look forward to it personally!
