Weekly Quiz Masters for 16-21 September 2013

The First Weekly Quiz was successfully completed by the following participants:

Team Category: Margie Deck, JHWS “Gwen” and Sheila Holtgreive, JHWS “Daisy”. These two intrepid quizzers and members of the successful Team Category of the First JHWS Annual Canonical Treasure Hunt, had all 20 correct answers.

Individual Member Category: First to answer within hours of the quiz posting was James O’Leary, JHWS “Pippin” who scored 19 correct answers in a three-way tie with Denny Dobry, JHWS “Kirby” and Elinor Hickey, JHWS “Misty” also with 19 correct answers each.

Individual Non-Member Category: Dean Turnbloom who answered all 20 questions correctly.

These Weekly Quiz Masters may now challenge for the Monthly Quiz Master designation in their quest for the Annual Quiz Master title.

Interesting that the participants with 19 correct answers missed the same question, #11 having to do with the circa 1683 ancestral home of the Roylotts, Stoke-Moran. The answers are posted at the bottom of the original quiz notice below and may be downloaded by clicking on the icon.

Next week’s Quiz will be posted by 12 noon (Pacific) on Monday, 23 September 2013 and will end on 12 noon (Pacific) Saturday, 28 September 2013. Please join in as the more challengers we have the greater the fun!

Good luck to all and congratulations to this week’s Quiz Masters.

 Welcome to Elinor Hickey, JHWS “Misty” as a Charter Member

We welcome today a life-ling Sherlockian and Watsonian and writer, Elinor Hickey, JHWS “Misty.” She resides in Baltimore, Maryland where she is a member of Watson’s Tin Box of Ellicott City, MD.

Elinor writes:

“My Sherlockian history is wandering; it started in the 1990’s when I was a wee child, and I read parts of the Canon but failed to absorb them.  It was reinforced in
the 2000’s when Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century was airing on TV, and that certainly caught my attention.  But, it was not until the Warner Brothers movie of 2009 and the subsequent surge in Holmesian goodness that I was properly hooked.  I quickly became involved in internet fandom, and am an enthusiastic writer of suggestive Holmes/Watson fiction (which can be found, for those inclined, under the pseudonym Mistyzeo at Archive of our Own).  My short story/pastiche “The Adventure of the Green Zeppelin” is included in the anthology Elementary Erotica from Circlet Press in 2011.”

We look forward to having your participation and the pleasure of your company. Please join in a warm welcome to Elinor with our new member greeting:

“You have been in Afghanistan, I perceive.”
