Scoring and timing
As in previous years we will adopt the following rule for scoring and timing;
Each individual player shall be allowed to attempt to answer their own question for two points.
If they answer incorrectly, it can be attempted for one point by another member of their own team.
If this attempt is wrong, it then passes over to the opposition for one point.
Timing; 10 seconds for your own question, 5 seconds for the other team members to answer and five seconds for the opposition to answer.

Results
The winning team should send them to me, immediately after the game (so that I have them by 10pm on the night of the game), by text to 07758 464 110 (leaving the names and scores for each team) or email pauldavitt@virginmedia.com. As there is a short time between games I would appreciate that you comply with this request, as there is very little time to send out the next set of questions.

Protests
In the event of a protest, team captains should advise me on the Monday night, then confer on the Tuesday and advise me by 8pm of the result of their consultation, by phone or email. If the team captains fail to agree; Paul Davitt, Jim Eccleson, Keith Clare and Angela Doyle will adjudicate by noon on the Wednesday.

Spare Questions;
If a Question Set fails to arrive, you may obtain a spare set from one of the following;

Angela Doyle 0151 722 1054 Jim Eccleson 0151 653 8649 Paul Davitt 0151 427 7617
